As soon as its first owner departs from the manufacturer’s delivery center, a new airplane technically becomes used (or pre-owned). For various reasons, however, the milestone separating “newer” used business aircraft from “older” ones is generally considered to be 10 years after the manufacturing date of each individual aircraft.
In deciding which aircraft to cover, we went beyond this 10-year mark to provide information on all business airplanes and helicopters manufactured since 1993. Therefore, our list includes models manufactured well before that year, as long as they were produced as recently as 1993. Some models manufactured for many years before 1993 are included, too, because a long production run is indicative of a successful aircraft. In addition, we added the new models that we could reasonably expect to be certified and go into production soon.
