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
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
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. Only the ultra wealthy (or those with friends in an elite class of travelers) will enjoy the luxury of flying aboard this beauty.
3. Dassault Falcon 7X
Top Speed: Mach 0.90 / 685 MPH
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
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’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
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.
