If you operate or fly on a private jet frequently, you may find yourself stoop-shouldered or ducking to avoid bumping your head on the roof of the cabin – especially if you’re tall. Sure, many of the trade-offs are worth it compared with the obstacles and frustration often associated with commercial airlines. As the most trusted provider of private aviation management software, we have some news you’ll be happy to hear if you’re a six-footer or even taller.
You may not know it, but according to reports, less than 40% of private jets offer a minimum of 6 feet of cabin height. Even if you’re only 5′ 10″ tall, you’re still left feeling as though you’ll graze the top of your head at any moment. Thankfully there are a few private jets that offer a more spacious feeling and ample headroom!
According to Private Jet Card Comparisons, Bombardier offers several models for those who desire a cabin height of 6′ 1″ including the Challenger 601, 604, & 605, among others. Prefer a cabin height of 6′ 2″ or even more? Bombardier, Dassault Falcon, and Gulfstream all have models offering this much height. Bombardier also has models offering cabin heights of 6′ 3″, while Gulfstream has two models offering cabin heights of 6′ 4″ and 6′ 5″, the G500 and G650, respectively. If you’re super tall you’ll appreciate all of the headroom in the Embraer Lineage 1000E, which offers a cabin height of 6′ 7″.
Here’s some information purely for entertainment value. Who needs a private jet with 6′ 7″ of cabin height? Think FBI Director, James Comey, and Hulk Hogan.
What about a 6′ 5″ cabin? Those who likely fly privately and could use this space include Vince Vaughn, John Cleese, David Gregory, Michael Jordan, and Peyton Manning, among others.
You might find Tech Crunch’s Michael Arrington or Conan O’Brien traveling on the Gulfstream G500, perfect for those around 6′ 4″ tall.
Who are some of the “shorties” among tall people? Our new President, Donald Trump and Christine Lagarde, Managing Director of the International Monetary Fund (IMF).
Good to know that when it comes to standing up straight and moving easily around the cabin of a private jet, those of substantial height do have options!
