Gulfstream Widebodies Top Bizjets in 2014, JetOptions Has One More Cessna Citation Sovereign Available for Charter, Hundreds of planes head to North Texas

Today we have 3 items on our post: First, is an article deeming the Gulfstream line of wide body jets as tops in the business jet category. Then, we have JetOptions news regarding availability of another Cessna Citation Sovereign for charter. This aircraft is a favorite of our clients for travel to Hawaii. Lastly, is a business aviation report about our part of Texas (for the JetOptions Dallas office at least) from the Dallas Morning News: This weekend will be a busy one in North Texas with the College Football Playoff National Championship game being played in Arlington, Texas. As always, if there is a story, article, item or a theme you’d like to see covered here, let us know in the comments section -Ed.

Gulfstream Widebodies Top Bizjets in 2014

In his latest monthly blog post, Teal Group vice president of analysis Richard Aboulafia gave an overview of aircraft programs that he considers to be the winners (F-35, F/A-18, Gripen NG, A320neo and A330neo) and losers (Scorpion, CSeries, KC-46, 747 and A380) in 2014. Business jets were conspicuously missing from the list, so AIN asked him to address this category.

Gulfstream’s large-cabin market dominance now looks secure for years to come.”

This is accomplished without sacrificing transcontinental range, and the aircraft is certified for charter flights from Los Angeles to Hawaii.

Local transportation and aviation officials expect several hundred smaller planes — carrying Oregon and Ohio State boosters, corporate sponsors and fans — to head into the area’s regional airports.

The added aviation activity that typically surrounds big stadium events like the Super Bowl, Dallas Cowboys playoff games and college athletic events has given smaller, local airports plenty of practice for crowds.
