The light jet market has undergone significant activity in recent years, with the Pilatus PC-24 "Super Versatile Jet" leading the way. This aircraft boasts the ability to take off and land on unimproved runways and features a rear cargo door. The Embraer Phenom 300E has received numerous upgrades, while the Cessna Citation CJ3+ now includes a “+” in its name, and the Bombardier LearJet has undergone a face-lift known as the “Liberty” edition.
While the light jet market remains competitive, air.one's selection of the Pilatus PC-24 as the 2018 Light Jet of the Year sets a clear favorite for this comparison. The PC-24 offers the lowest list price, lowest direct operating cost, and longest range of the three aircraft compared. Its super versatility and cargo door make it ideal for multi-mission purposes, such as air ambulance transport, accessing remote locations quickly and efficiently, and loading up to three stretchers.
The LearJet 75 boasts a fast cruising speed and a flat floor, which is a rare feature in this class. It comes equipped with thrust reversers and the new LearJet 75 Liberty edition features a luxurious "Executive Suite" cabin with a forward-facing first row of club seats with class-leading legroom and stowable ottoman, as well as a fixed forward pocket door and rear lavatory door.
The Phenom 300E, one of the best-selling jets of all time, is a popular choice among owner-operators and corporate flight departments due to its modest list price, innovative and sleek cabin experience, and the fact that it is certified for single-pilot operations, making it the longest-range and fastest single-pilot jet available.
