If you are looking to purchase a private plane, a full-size luxury private jet may not meet your needs. Fortunately, there are several light jets available that can provide a similar experience at a lower cost.

Check out our guide to the best light jets available right now.

1. Embraer Phenom 100EV

Weighing in at number one, we have the Embraer Phenom 100. The baby brother to the Phenom 300 is a super-light jet from Brazilian plane maker Embraer. Designed to be simpler to fly than other planes in its class, it boasts 70% fewer items on its checklist than other light jets.

Embraer has another major boast; its interior was designed by luxury carmakers BMW. This means it is ultra-comfortable despite its small frame. The 100 and 100EV have been great residual value performers and earlier production models can be bought well below 2M.

2. Citation M2

With room for up to seven passengers and avionics cared for by just one pilot, the Citation M2 is ideal for corporate travel.

It has an impressive range of up to 1,550 nautical miles. Yet with its potent engines, it handles this easily and efficiently. It is designed with comfort in mind and has a wireless cabin management system for ultimate ease of travel. Newer aircraft are trading above 4M.

3.  Cirrus Vision

The Cirrus Vision jet has the distinction of being the only single-engine plane on our list. It is incredibly light and is an excellent option for those who are looking to step up from smaller planes to jets.

At a lower cost of $2 million, yet with space for six people, this is a simple yet multipurpose jet. It also comes with computer engine management assistance.

4. Honda Jet Elite

The Honda Jet is a high-performance plane with beautiful looks. At the cost of $5.3 Million, it does not come cheap, yet its power is exceptional.

The HondaJet Elite was launched 30 months after the launch of HondaJet. It has expanded fuel capacity. Meaning its luxury interior design can be enjoyed over longer journeys.
