Need to land or take off on short runways in remote locations? No problem all that’s needed is a field length of 956 meters.

The interior of the jet was designed by BMW Group Design works, they made sure that the windows were large and this gives the cabin space a light and very airy feeling, along with the very best views possible.
The jet is the only business aircraft to have an air stair single piece door that ensures easy entry and exit for passengers and there will be a choice of three basic layouts in the cabin with the standard one having six seats in a set out in a four seat club section with forward facing seating in the aft cabin. If you have a lot of luggage to take with you, no problem, the luggage compartment can carry a golf bag, ski bag, garment bag and a carry-on bag for each of the passengers onboard along with passengers being able to store small items in the cabin.
