The Westwind 1124 isn’t the newest business jet on the market, nor is it one that is equipped with all of the state of the art amenities that business charter jets of today have in spades. Instead it is a business jet that offers a comfortable interior, a trustworthy record and best of all, the ability to get where you’re going on your terms, on your schedule and without having to fly commercial.
The Westwind 1124 is a medium sized jet that can be configured to hold up to 10 passengers. It works with a crew of just two, consisting of a pilot and co-pilot and of course like with many business jets, the seating plan can be re-arranged to suit your specific needs. It has superior leather seats, plenty of head, shoulder and leg room and a pressurized cabin that is 1.43m high by 1.43m wide. Great for those longer stay business trips is the fact that this aircraft also boasts 60 cubic feet of baggage space and of course also has an onboard lavatory. It can also be reconfigured as a freight aircraft if that is what your business needs.
Built by the small but successful Israel Aircraft Industries company, the Westwind 1124 has a 13.65m wingspan, a cruising speed of 723 km/hr. and two fuel efficient TFE 731 Turbofan engines. Although her design may seem a bit outdated compared to the newer business jets on the market today, she had modifications in the early 1980’s to her design like a new center section on the wing and the addition of winglets that were industry leading at the time and help to keep her design current by today’s ever changing standards.
The Westwind 1124 is just like any other business charter jet. It eliminates the need to take your team on a commercial airline and lets you avoid the heavy lines and wait times that are associated with security and the processing of thousands of people each and every day at commercial airports.
Best of all, by chartering a jet you can make your own schedule, can fly in and out of smaller airports closer to your destination and can even work in flight thanks to the changeable seating and table configurations.
