Boieng BBJ Exectuve Private Jet MUST HAVE

The Boeing Business Jet is the product of a Boeing and General Electric joint venture to create a high performing aircraft. Introduced in 2006, the ultra-long range BBJ 3 is the largest in the family of Business Jets. Based off not one but two successful jets, the B737 and BBJ, the BBJ 3 offers competitive range, speed and operating systems in an equally large package.

This ultra-long range corporate jet is ideal for businesses that require frequent but productive trips, offering the tools and space to work on the road. However, it is just as desirable to individuals who wish to travel large.

Based on the 737-900ER (Extended Range) airliner, the BBJ 3 capable of traveling a range of 5,475nm. Along with its sheer size the BBJ 3 gives any office or apartment a run for its money with 1,120 sq. ft. of cabin Space.

The cabin’s 1,120ft² floor area can seat up to 169 passengers in addition to an executive lounge and private suite. The BBJ 3 provides a 35% increase in cabin volume over the BBJ I.

Working with an Interior designer, configuration can typically include an executive office, conference rooms, private offices and bedrooms. In addition, staff or family sleeping or seating areas, personal environments can be created for example with a living room, dining room, a master bedroom and bathroom including full shower, or two bedrooms and two bathrooms.
The flight deck accommodates the pilot and co-pilot and incorporates many features of the Boeing 737-900ER. The glass cockpit has a Rockwell Collins Flight Dynamics HGS-4000 head up display and six Honeywell flat-panel liquid crystal flight displays. The HGS-4000 has improved low visibility takeoff guidance, runway deceleration cueing and advanced display features. Smiths Industries developed and supplied the dual flight management computers.

The communications systems include Rockwell Collins triple VHF and dual HF communications and a Coltech selective calling system (SelCal).

The Rockwell Collins Series 90 avionics system is integrated with a dual automatic direction finding (ADF), TCAS II traffic alert and collision avoidance system and a predictive wind shear unit.

The navigation suite includes dual Rockwell Collins navigation multimode receivers, incorporating a global positioning system (GPS), instrument landing system (ILS) and a VHF omni-directional radio range navigation aid with data from the distance measuring equipment (VOR/DME). The aircraft is equipped with an enhanced ground proximity warning system (EGPWS) and an airborne navigation data recorder (ANDR), digital flight data acquisition unit (DAFU) and a quick access recorder supplied by Teledyne.

The aircraft’s 120-minute cockpit voice recorder (CVR) and the flight data recorder (FDR) were supplied by L-3 Communications.

Boeing now offers the development of an enhanced vision system (EVS) for the BBJ airframes. The EVS will have multi-wavelength infrared sensors from Max-Viz and will be displayed on the HGS-4000 HUD. Certification of the EVS is planned for early 2008.
The BBJ 3 is derived from the 737-900ER airframe design, which provides improved performance in terms of higher range and speed, lower noise levels and lower emissions than previous members of the Boeing 737 family.

In regards to design, the BBJ 3 closely resembles the B737: its low swept wing, under-wing engines, vertical fin and retractable tricycle landing gear. Making corporate, long-range missions possible. The fuselage is of fail-safe aluminum structure. The aluminum alloy wings and the tail plane are of dual path fail-safe two-spar structure. The wings have Aviation Partners blended winglets to provide reduced air turbulence, therefore increasing fuel mileage, range and altitude capability.

Weight saving has been achieved through the use of composite materials, with graphite, Kevlar and carbon reinforced plastics for the ailerons, elevators and rudder.


The aircraft has two CFM56-7B27 turbofan engines developed by CFM International. The engines are rated at 27,300lb st thrust. The wing tanks hold 26,025l of fuel. Additionally three to seven fuel tanks can bring the total maximum fuel capacity to 39,531l.

The BBJ 3 is capable of 180-minutes extended-range, twin-engine operations (ETOPS) providing access to faster, more direct and shorter routes, for example over Arctic or Himalayan areas.
