This year, Magellan Jets was one out of the many industry leaders who participated at the MBAA 2nd Annual Aviation Day at the new Rectrix FBO facility at Laurence G. Hanscom Field in Bedford, Mass.
Many jets were on display at the exclusive event, and the Magellan Jets team was able to speak with the pilots and manufacturers of each aircraft to learn more about their special features and new technological advancements.
From the Gulfstream G550 to the Embraer Phenom 300, Magellan Jets got an inside look at what makes each aircraft unique, and for some of us at Magellan Jets, some where more unique than others…
Anthony Tivnan- Magellan Jets President
Favorite Aircraft: Dassault Falcon 7X
“The Dassault Falcon 7X has really set the bar high for private air travel. It is easily the most technologically advanced business jet available today. It has been known to have the capability to land and stop in just 2,070 ft. Because it has the ability to make slower and safer landings, the Falcon X has access to more airports than any other jet! It also has the most advanced flight deck out there, making it the safest aircraft and flight crew in the sky.”
Michael Donovan- Flight Support Specialist, FAA Certified Pilot
Favorite Aircraft: Bombardier Global 6000
“Being a pilot myself, I was incredibly impressed with the Global 6000 for multiple reasons. A few of the key areas that really caught my attention were the state of the art flight deck, and the incredibly comfortable cabin that could fit anyone’s needs. With a range of nearly 6,000NM, the Global is the perfect airplane to take you anywhere in the world!”
Tim Stone- Aircraft Sourcing Consultant
Favorite Aircraft: Challenger 350
“All of the aircraft were amazing, but the Challenger 350 was my favorite because compared to other super midsize jets, the Challenger 350 has way more cabin room, which makes it more comfortable for passengers. While it’s not as fast as an aircraft like the Citation X, it makes up for it with the spacious cabin.”
Gina-Maria Garcia- Public Relations and Marketing Coordinator
Favorite Aircraft: Gulfstream G550
“There’s no denying that the Gulfstream G550 was the most beautiful jet there. The lavish interior made me feel like royalty.
At the event, I learned that the G550 can transport up to 18 passengers and still fly nonstop for more than 12 hours! I find that amazing. No one likes a layover, especially when you’re on a jet as nice as this.”
Steve Ciancio- Jet Card and Membership Consultant
Favorite Aircraft: Embraer Phenom 300
“I was really surprised, in a good way, by the size of the Embraer Phenom 300 in comparison to other light jets in the industry, like the Lear 45 and the Hawker 400XP.
I would recommend this aircraft to my clients because of its overall performance, safety, quality, and age of the entire fleet of Phenom 300s available in the industry.”
