The Light jets have been a staple of the business jet industry since the advent of the Lear Jet in the early 1960s. The light jets provide not only access to the small airports but also the speed to be a highly affective air travel tool. In recent years new aircraft such as the Cessna Citation jet line and Grob SPn from Grob Aerospace are raising the bar in terms of aircraft speed, comfort, fuel efficiency and affordability.
