Capable of carrying small groups of people (generally 2-4), very light jets (VLJs) are specifically suited and designed for short haul to medium range flights. The wide variety of VLJs available encompass diverse performance characteristics and payloads although their maximum takeoff weight is under 10,000 pounds. While most VLJs are designed for small groups of people, some larger VLJs can accommodate more baggage than others and/or might include a semi-private lavatory. All VLJs are powered by jet engines (normally two) and feature pressurized passenger cabins for added comfort, safety and performance. In comparison to turbo-prop aircraft however, VLJs offer significant time savings by utilizing jet engines, yet offer the same cost savings due to reduced operational costs. VLJs are generally configured in a VIP format to cater to executives and to maximize passenger capacity.
