Very Light Jets / Entry Level Jets

Charter a Very Light Jet for Business or Leisure Travel

Air Charter Advisors connects you to Very Light Jets available in your area for on-demand charter flights, and private aviation services including aircraft sales & acquisitions, jet card memberships, and aircraft management.

Chartering a VLJ, also know as an entry level jet, is a great way for executives and luxury travelers to enjoy private jet travel without the heavy costs of chartering a larger aircraft.

Entry-level jets have been the fastest growing business jet category, and often marketed as a “personal jet” — designed to carry up to 6 passengers with speeds up to nearly 500mph, a typical range of between 1,000-1,500 nautical miles, and the ability to access shorter and challenging runways, the very light jets provide more freedom and flexibility than any other jet type.

Renting a Very Light Jet is often the most cost-effective jet option, making it a popular choice for flights along the Atlantic and Pacific Coasts, including New York to DC, Los Angeles to Seattle, or Miami to Atlanta. It also performs well on shorter runways, arriving at and departing from airports that larger jets are unable to utilize.

The category was first created in 2006, when the Cessna Citation Mustang received the first FAA certification for its type, with the Eclipse 500 joining later in the same year and the Embraer Phenom 100 released two years later. Honda offered their first VLJ in 2015, and Cirrus introduced the first single-engine jet the following year.

* Hourly rates are based on market averages and previous trip as of 2022, and will vary based on a variety of factors ranging from year, makes and model of aircraft; routing, scheduling/availability, fuel prices and more, and do not include ramp, hangar, FBO, overnights, daily minimums, taxes, international fees, catering, ground transportation, or de-icing.
