While the rest of the business aviation industry is battling the depressed economy, there seems to be a buoyant market in the U.S. and abroad for this ultra-high-priced, high-performance jet. And why not? With a top speed of 92% of the speed of sound (arguably the fastest civilian jet in the world), room for a basketball team, 8,000-statute-mile range and some of the most sophisticated avionics rivaling nearly anything in the sky, this airplane is perfect for doing business on a global scale.
