With its smooth handling, consistent performance record, and impressive take off and landing capabilities, the Excel is a smart choice for short and mid range flights. Powered by two Pratt & Whitney PW545 engines, capable of delivering some 3,804 lbs of thrust, the Excel, although technically a midsize jet, also slips into the light jet class due to its ability to take off on runways as short as 3,600 feet and reach its cruising altitude in less than 19 minutes. Streamlined simplicity defines the Excel’s Honeywell Primus 1000 avionics suite which consolidates a bewildering number of displays into three, pilot-friendly, intuitive screens. With a standard, midsize length (18.7 feet, 5.7 feet high, and 5.5 feet wide), the quiet, well insulated cabin seats up to eight passengers. An external baggage compartment furnishes passengers with a generous 80 cubic feet of storage space.
