As soon as its first owner departs from the manufacturer’s delivery center, a new airplane technically becomes used (or preowned). For various reasons, however, 10 years after an aircraft’s final production date is generally considered the milestone separating “newer” used business aircraft from “older” ones.

In deciding which aircraft to cover, we went well past this 10-year mark to provide information on all business airplanes and helicopters manufactured since 1996. This means our list includes some models manufactured before that year, as long as they were still being produced as recently as 1996. As a rule, a long production run is indicative of a successful aircraft.

We have not listed new models that, at press time, had yet to receive final certification.

“What we need to do is always lean into the future. When the world changes around you and when it changes against you—what used to be a tail wind is now a head wind—you have to lean into that and figure out what to do because complaining isn’t a strategy. ”

-Amazon CEO and Washington Post owner Jeff Bezos at a press conference for the third-generation Kindle Fire tablet.
