When a 737 MAX is transformed into a private plane, will its cruising distance compete with that of the G650?
Boeing hopes to publish Boeing's Max version Business Jet (BBJ) certificated power diagrams early next year. Besides the next-generation CFM56-7 engine on the Boeing BBJ-Max 2019, expanded reach tank models will also be available. As the plane will have a higher gross mass and will be available without additional lower situated petrol tank, its cruising distance is only a few hundred kilometers longer than the actual B-737-700.
Boeing's main objective at present is to bring the Max 7 and Max 8 into series manufacturing before a business jet release is made. A Gulfstream expanded cruising distance 650ER can fly 7,500 to 8,500 law mile with a max. of 8 (+2 pilot and 2 crews ) people. Up to 18 persons can be carried on short journeys (approx. 5,000 mph or less ) provided the aircraft does not cross the MTOW.
Actual estimations for the B-737-Max 8 are the same as for the G650, about 7,500 statutory mileage ( 6,555 sea miles) with 8 passenger plus crews. In fact, the BBJ1, currently BBJ1 powered by the 700 has 250 gal more than the previous version, thanks to the older wings. BBJ has never been and never will be conceived as a long-haul commercial aircraft as the main clientèle.
It' s cab is far too large for 8 to 18 people and the design and certification fees for the transportation of 8,500 legal air miles of heavily fuelled aircraft to sold 2 aircraft per year are not financially viable if they already make $30+m US dollars more than a 650. Only aircraft that can reach the cruising distance of the 650ER is the Bombardier Global Express 8000 in the 7,900 - 8,100 mil long 7,900 - 8,100 mil long Club, which will be fully introduced in 2019 with certification and 4 million US dollars less in price.
None of the crews plan a trip that will require maximal utilization of the planes. A business jet's most lifelike long-haul performance is about 85 to 90% of its peak headwind performance and 90 to 95% of its peak tailwind performance. The majority of journeys on which such an airplane is needed are easy to realize, with New York - London or London - Dubai included.
Each exceeds 7,500 legal mileage. There is only less than 10 per year of increased reach with Gulfstream and Bombardier in the lead and Cessna in third place. In fact, the vast bulk of planes selling in this category are in fractions in fleet powered by NetJets or flex jets.
