The Beechjet 400A and Hawker 400XP are the ideal light jets with seating for seven passengers, cruising speeds up to 518 mph and superior comfort.  The Hawker 800/800XP is the benchmark for mid-size aircraft with room for eight passengers and cruising speeds of up to 514 mph, as well as a substantially lower cost per statute mile than its competitors.  The Embraer Legacy, the newest addition to the Flight Options fleet, is unique in that is a large cabin aircraft, seating for 13, with the operating costs of a mid-size jet.  This makes it a smart alternative in this category.
