Boeing Business Jets set a new world record for “Speed Over a Recognized Course”

Boeing Business Jets set a new world record for “Speed Over a Recognized Course” when a BBJ flew non-stop from Los Angeles to Auckland, New Zealand for installation of its VIP interiors. The BBJ, a 737-700 modified for VIP use, made the 5,658 nautical mile (10,479 km) trip in 13 hours, 7 minutes and 54 seconds.

The record-setting trip was monitored by the National Aeronautic Association based in Washington, D.C.  BBJ president captain Steve Taylor said the trip demonstrates the incredible range capability of the BBJ.

“When we left Los Angeles with full fuel, we were 21,000 pounds below our Maximum Takeoff Weight.  This means that the customer can add a full VIP interior, fill all the seats and still carry full fuel and have remarkable range – something our competitor with the same class business jet simply cannot do non-stop,” said Taylor.

The airplane had 7,800 pounds of fuel remaining when it landed in Auckland Sunday evening.

The BBJ, owned by Samsung Electronics, is equipped with seven auxiliary fuel tanks, giving it the extended range capability. It also features lower cabin altitude, which differentiates it from its competitor. The option provides a 6,500-foot cabin altitude instead of the standard 8,000-foot cabin, allowing passengers to travel in greater comfort.

The airplane was flown to New Zealand for the first interior completion of a new BBJ by Altitude Aerospace Interiors, an Auckland-based company which was launched in 2008.

Boeing delivers the BBJ to the customer “green” (no interior or paint) so it can be customized to suit the specific needs and taste of the customer. The completion center of the customer’s choosing installs the VIP interiors, which typically takes nine months to a year.

The BBJ is the best selling model of Boeing’s business jet line with 157 sold to date.

Winglets – they are very interesting devices. They make planes perform better and most people think that they look good too. The new 737Max winglet (which I would assume will be standard equipment on the BBJ MAX) is shown on the blog of Boeing’s Randy Tinseth, vice president, marketing for Boeing Commercial Airplanes in Seattle. The picture is of Randy with a full scale model of the 737 MAX Advanced Technology Winglet

The picture gives you a good idea of how large these winglets actually are.

World’s Top Private Jets – The Boeing Business Jet

by Helen Mahoney

Boeing is one of the most popular aircraft in the world. Based in Seattle, Washington, Boeing was founded in 1916 and employs over 55-million as of 2008. Their most popular model, the 737 jet which took its first flight in 1967, has now become a scaled-down version.

These rearranged airplanes are referred to as private business jets. Boeing’s jets are all factory conversions of Boeing airliners. Some of the jets are able to seat between 25 and 50 passengers in luxury, and include master bedrooms, washrooms with shower(s), a dining/conference area, and a living area. The Boeing Business Jet 2 is based on the 737-800.

Boeing advertises their jets for large scale business. When you need a plane large enough to handle your business, yet wish to fly in luxury, the BBJ2 is a solid choice. The Boeing jet has a range of up to 5,735 nautical miles, and offers passengers (up to 19 in the BBJ2 Multiflight model) 3 times more personal space than conventional jets.

The max speed of.82 Mach (over 600mph) ensures that you’ll get to where you’re going fast. The comfortable cruising altitude is above the clouds at 41,000 feet, cutting down on the turbulence and the panic-stricken passengers who scream when the plane jolts.

The new Multiflight Ltd BBJ2 is a sight to behold. It’s truly a one-of-a-kind sky-bound wonder. This version features surround sound in both cabins, a dining area in both cabins, and two ultra luxurious bathrooms. The extra large galley allows 5-star quality food to be prepared and served onboard.

And if you fly with a service, the huge HD TVs are there to display any movie from an enormous selection. Manufacturers went to great lengths to reduce cabin pressure and noise, making the flight less annoying and tiresome, and more enjoyable. In each seat, passengers have access to a phone and fax machine.

To purchase a Boeing Business Jet 2, you’d have to pay a whopping $55-million. But unless you’re John Travolta, renting this bad boy out for a business trip is probably the best way to go. The steep price, however, does buy a lot.

You get the reliability of 2 CFM International CFM56-7 turbofans with 117.4kN thrust each, which is all the power you could ever need. You also get one of the most luxurious rides of your life, time and time again. The spacious and stylish cabin exterior resembles the world’s finest luxury hotel suites. And if you’re lucky enough to stay in the master bedroom, you probably couldn’t tell the difference.   2 crew members fly the jet, and some BBJ2 models can carry up to 63 passengers. It has a length of 39.47 meters, wingspan of 35.79 meters, height of 12.05 meters, and weighs over 100,000 pounds when empty. It’s not exactly dainty, but the BBJ2 is a world-class private jet that everyone should experience a ride in at least once.
