It will be the first business jet fitted with flaperons – active deflection control surfaces that can act both as flaps, ailerons or airbrakes. The new jet has a cabin height of six feet, six inches(1.98 m), an important consideration for passenger comfort on flights of 10 or 11 hours’ duration. The 16 – passenger aircraft has a range of 5,200 nautical miles (9,630km), connecting Los Angeles with London, Sao Paulo with Chicago, Johannesburg with Geneva or Paris with Beijing.
