The HondaJet is a unique light jet that has become very popular in the last several years since its first delivery in 2015. The most unique feature of the HondaJet is the engines being mounted on top of the wings. This allows for more space in the cabin since no structures are needed to mount the engines on the fuselage. Also, this helps to reduce noise and allow easier access for engine maintenance. The HondaJet has one of the largest cabins in its class and has become a comfortable, cost-effective option for first-time private jet travelers.

Airbus Corporate Jet 220
Airbus is mostly known for its highly fuel-efficient and automated commercial airliners such as the A320 and A380 superjumbo jet. Most recently they started producing the A220, a new highly advanced, and efficient airliner. Seeing a need for large corporate jets they also made a private jet variant called the ACJ 220 (Airbus Corporate Jet 220). Typically the A220 seats between 100-150 people when configured for an airliner. When redesigned for VIP transport there is almost no limit to the amenities that can be installed. Bedrooms, theaters, a full galley kitchen, full bathrooms with showers, and even a wet bar can be added. In some cases, extra fuel tanks can even be equipped allowing for a vast intercontinental range. Even the electro-chromatic window shades can be controlled by the touch of your fingertips. High-speed internet connectivity is standard and even the coffee tables can be moved to allow for space for a dance floor. The ACJ 220 is expected to be launched in early 2023 and is by far the coolest and most equipped private jet on this list.
