Is it realistic for like a buisness jet like a Cessna Citation to fly VFR below 18000 MSL on a sight seeing trip?
it would be more realistic if i was flying it at about 1500ft and carrying a load of Flyaway members in the seats 😀
It's certainly possible, however, it would be very expensive. Most biz jets are used for biz. Exceptions are the very wealthy and I assume some of them have gone sightseeing occasionally. At jet speeds, sightseeing is also not as good as it would be for slower, more economical airplanes. I figure with reserves for maintenance and replacement, it costs me about $94/hour to fly my older C-172. A biz jet cost per hour would approach $1,000 for smaller jets and considerably upwards of that for larger ones.
Thanks. I was hoping you would answer taht post. 😀
