Private Jets That Can Satisfy Your Need For Speed – Here are the 5 Fastest Jets in the Sky

Being a jet setter, you have a need to get from here to there, and sometimes back here again very quickly. You’re a busy person, you don’t have time for ground delays, aircraft changes, layovers, or flying at speeds slower than 700 miles per hour! Your time is valuable, so to save some more of it for you, we’ve compiled a list of the 5 fastest private jets available today. Just pick your preferred speed and call us to book your next private jet charter flight!

5. Gulfstream G-500

Top Speed: Mach 0.885 / 673 MPH

Gulfstream G-500

The G-500 is revered by any passenger that has enjoyed the luxury of climbing aboard. This elegantly stylish aircraft, created in the traditionally impressive Gulfstream vision, flies at an impressive 673 MPH. The G-500 was the speed darling of the Gulfstream family until the recent introduction of the new golden child, the G-650.

4. Bombardier Global 5000

Top Speed: Mach 0.89 / 677 MPH

Bombardier Global 5000

The always-impressive Bombardier enters our list with the very popular Global 5000. This ultra long range Heavy Jet is highly coveted by jet setters everywhere and flies at an impressive 677 MPH.

3. Dassault Falcon 7X

Top Speed: Mach 0.90 / 685 MPH

Dassault Falcon 7X

Never one to be left out, Dassault makes the list with their own speed demon. The Falcon 7X flies at a whopping 685 MPH on its best day. This spacious Heavy Jet would be a delight to find on the tarmac for anyone preparing for a long range flight. Not only is it fast, it flies up to 5,950 miles non-stop.

2. Gulfstream G-650

Top Speed: Mach 0.925 / 704 MPH

Gulfstream G650

The G-650, the Gulfstream Golden Child, falls just short of the top of this speed list. Missing the mark by just 7 MPH, this gorgeous jet is larger than the fastest jet, and quickly working its way to the most popular jet in the sky. If you want to take a ride on the G-650 you’ll have to stand in line, as there are a limited few actually available today. Let’s hope Gulfstream delivers more soon!

1. Cessna Citation X

Top Speed: Mach 0.935 / 711 MPH

Cessna Citation X

Cessna’s Citation X is the fastest of the fast, the quickest of the quick, it’s the speediest jet available to the general public. This private jet will fly coast to coast in less than 5 hours. Our ancestors couldn’t have dreamed up such a mighty machine in the sky. At a whopping 711 MPH, you won’t find many arguments against it. If your group is 8 or fewer, and you prefer to spend as little time traveling as possible, the Citation X is the best option for you.

Future Supersonic Jets

Future Supersonic Jets

Your average commercial jet flies at Mach 0.85 (567mph) and supersonic jets are soon predicted to reach speeds of 1,060 – 1,200mph. This is nearly twice the speed of sound. America’s Federal Aviation Administration currently prohibits supersonic flight over land so you may just have to head towards sea in order to experience the thrill of exceeding Mach 1. Private jets of the future are expected to be able to travel from London to Sydney in an afternoon – but you’ll have to wait several more years to experience this.

If you have a need for speed, you can count on Lido Jets to get you where you’re going with speedy style. Call 888-220-4598 or email charter@lidojets.com for service 24/7/365.

When you enter the luxurious lobby you will be immediately greeted by a friendly and welcoming staff who have been anticipating your arrival. Your crew will immediately take your luggage to be stowed for your flight, while you relax and enjoy a cup of coffee and a freshly baked cookie.

Only when you are ready, you will make your way directly to your the luxury jet you have personally selected previously, and board it immediately. You will never know the dread of a security line or TSA pat down as long as you travel by private jet. You’ll be treated as the VIP you truly are for the entire duration of your trip.

Once aboard, you will take your place in the plush leather seat of your choice. As you relax comfortably and soar above the clouds, you will enjoy a fresh gourmet meal and a chilled glass of champagne.

Lido Jets Is The Way To Fly – Here’s Why!

By .

Flying by commercial airline has become an unpleasant hassle for most travelers. Lido Jets is here to change the way you look at air travel! Traveling by private jet has become the most convenient and often cost effective option for many seasoned fliers. Take a look at our top 10 reason flying private is the most convenient option for you:

1. Time is Ticking

Have you ever spent an entire day getting from one place to another because commercial airlines didn’t offer direct service for your route? When you charter a private jet, you can avoid unecessary layovers, aircraft swaps, and delays typically experienced on commercial flights – allowing you to save countless hours of your valuable time.

2. Skip the Security Lines

When you arrive at your private FBO to board your aircraft, you can be sure you won’t be herded through a long TSA security line like livestock. Rather, you’ll be personally welcomed into the lobby to enjoy a cup of coffee and a fresh baked cookie, then swiftly escorted directly to your waiting private jet for take off.

3. Forget Delays

Everyone has a story about when they spent hours in a commercial airport terminal, waiting on endless unexplained flight delays. When you charter a private jet, your delay days are over. Your jet and crew will be ready to depart the moment you arrive to the airport.

4. Saving Dollars Makes Cents

We realize that everyone can’t save money by chartering a private plane, however, when it comes to high level executives a private flight is often the most cost effective route. Rather than spending two valuable days traveling to an obscure destination, a private jet will get you to your morning meeting, and have you back home in time to tuck in the kids for bed the very same day.

5.  Work It

When you travel by private jet you often enjoy the luxury of in flight WiFi and a personal power source, allowing you to plug in and perfect your presentation or finish up a last minute assignment before your feet are back on the ground.

6. Get Closer

Thousands of airports worldwide are inaccessible to commercial airliners, making private jets your only option for getting to the landing strip closest to your next destination. When you travel by private plane you can save yourself hours of travel time on the ground.

7. Love Your Liquids

Feel free to pack as many hair gels, hand lotions, and make up bottles as you wish. You can even tuck them away deep inside your suitcase, as there is no 3 oz rule when you travel by private jet.

8. Get Personal

If you’ve ever endured the horrendous experience that comes along with a call to a commercial customer service line, then you realize the necessity of prompt and personal service. When you book a private jet charter with Lido Jets, a human that is famililiar with your account history and any upcoming flights will ALWAYS answer the phone and be ready to assist you with all of your travel needs.

9. Practice Privacy

Travelling with 300 strangers leaves the idea of privacy to the imagination. When you charter a private jet, however, you will enjoy complete privacy for the duration of your flight. You can relax while you discuss a confidential business deal or private personal matter with your fellow luxury travelers.

10. Healthy is Happy

It can not be denied that thousands of passengers fall ill after flying on commercial airliners every year. It only takes one passengers germs in the recycled air to ruin your weekend. When you choose to rent a private jet, you will know exactly who is sharing your oxygen, and touch down feeling just as healthy and happy as you were before you left.
