It’s also one of the roomiest cabins in its class. A desirable ceiling height of 6’ 2”, a 7.7-foot width, and seating for 8 to 12 passengers give everyone enough space without encroaching on others’ comfort.

With seating for up to 14 passengers, you can take your entire entourage with you as you travel to meet with clients or attend events. You’ll also appreciate the whisper-quiet cabin that lets you focus on your work and the steep-approach capability that expands your travel options to more airports.
