Light Jets for Sale

Light Jets usually provide a non-stop range between 1,500nm up to more than 2,000nm and seat 6-7 passengers. They usually include a basic galley area and lavatory, while an in-flight accessible luggage area may or may not be available. Typically, a Light Jet buyer can expect to pay between $5.75m and $11.886m for a new model, per Aircraft Bluebook’s Fall 2022 data, while examples can be found for much less on the pre-owned market depending on age, condition, maintenance status and more. Manufacturers active in the Light Jet market include Cessna, Embraer and Pilatus, while popular out-of-production options include jets built by Bombardier and Hawker.

FAQs: Light Jets for Sale

Here are the most Frequently Asked Questions for Light Jets for sale
  • What is the most popular Light Jet model?

    The all-time best-seller among Light Jets was the Cessna Citation II, which sold 607 units over its production run. More recently, the Embraer Phenom 300 held the title of best-selling jet for several consecutive years. In total, Embraer built 483 units before replacing it with the Phenom 300E.

  • How much does a Light Jet cost?

    A brand new Light Jet cost between $5.75m and $11.886m, per Aircraft Bluebook’s Fall 2022 data. Buyers shopping the pre-owned market will find a wider range of pricing, however, which is driven by an individual aircraft’s age, maintenance condition, and more.

  • How fast do Light Jets fly?

    Generally, Light Jets are somewhat slower than Mid-Size and Large Jets, but faster than Turboprops. As a generalization, Light Jet owners can expect a Maximum Cruise speed between 380 and 470 knots. However, the slower speeds are offset by the lower average trip lengths typically flown by these jets.

Light Jets Overview

By Matt Harris


Over the last several decades, there have been a wide range of Light Jets produced for private and Business Aviation. At the smaller end of the spectrum, some of the models (such as the Cessna Citation CJ1+) offer seating for five passengers. More typically, jets in this category seat between 6-7 passengers.


Aircraft classified as Light Jets tend to have a maximum take-off weight ranging between 10,001 and 20,000 pounds. An attractive trait about the Light Jet for the smaller flight departments is that some of the models are certified for single-pilot operations.


More recent production models lack nothing in the sophistication of avionics available aboard larger jets, making them very safe to fly.


Buyers seeking a brand-new Light Jet direct from the OEM can expect to pay between $5.75m and approximately $11.886m, depending on the performance characteristics and size they require.


Light Jets are ideal for owners seeking value and flexibility from their aircraft. Owners will often use Light Jets to fly colleagues, friends and family on short inter-continental trips of 1,200 nautical miles, or less.


Jets within this category are excellent business tools, giving their passengers flexibility to make multiple short trips in a single day, and can access shorter runways than larger business jets, opening up access more destinations.


Popular Light Jet models produced today are manufactured by Cessna (Textron Aviation), Embraer, and Pilatus Aircraft. Over the years, other renowned OEMs have also produced Light Jets, including Bombardier Learjet, Beechcraft, and Hawker. Many good examples of models built by all of these manufacturers can be found on the pre-owned aircraft market today.
