Airplanes with "empty weights" (i.e. simple empty weights) between 15,000 kg/33,069 lbs and 45,000 kg/99,208 lbs are covered by China's latest fare schedule, which includes 50 billion dollars worth of imported goods. The base empty weight for the Gulfstream G550 and G650 is approximately 21,546 kg/47,500 lbs. and 24,131 kg/53,200 lbs. respectively. BBJ1 is close to the top of the scale with a gross weight of 44,334 kg/97,740lb.
There is no other FAA-certified corporate jet produced in the USA that appears to fit into this category.
The Boeing 737 (pronounced "seven-three-seven") is a short to medium term, narrow jet produced by the US company Boeing Commercial Airplanes.
The Boeing 737 (pronounced "seven-three-seven") is a short to medium term, narrow jet produced by the US company Boeing Commercial Airplanes. The 737 was developed as a derived version of the Boeing 707 and 727, cheaper, smaller and twin-jet. Boeing 737-200 British Airways (1985).
737-800 Boeing de la companía Turca SunExpress. The 737 was built by Boeing to meet the demand for a competing product in the short-haul aviation market, opened by the BAC 1-11 and the Douglas DC-9. In this competition Boeing lagged far behind when the construction of the 737 began in 1964, when the two competitors already had flight certificates.
On 19 February 1965, the American construction company Boeing announced its intention to build the 737, a short-distance air bridge with two engines. The Boeing 737-100 made its maiden flight on 9 April 1967, and Lufthansa took up service with this aircraft on 10 February 1968.
The 737 consisted of the fuselage of the 727 with a stern similar to the 707, a technology that Boeing reused to the maximum. A capacity of 60 to 85 passengers was planned, but Lufthansa (first customer) needed a capacity of 100 seats. This gave the 737 a big advantage over the competition as it offered more passenger capacity and lower design costs, the wing contained much of the technology developed for the Boeing 727, but opted for a more conservative design.
Two months after the launch of the 737 by Boeing, the company announced the simultaneous development of the larger capacity model 737-200. The first 737-200 flew on August 8, 1967 and was put into service at United Airlines on April 29, 1968. The B-737-200 has a fuselage 1.83 metres longer to accommodate 130 passengers.
In 1979 the B-737-200Adv (Advanced) appeared, which had a larger fuel capacity, a higher take-off weight, a longer range and improved avionics. 737-800, Air BerlinAfter the production of two further production runs, the 300, which was launched by Southwest Airlines on 5 March 1981, was 3 m longer than the 200 production run and equipped with CFM56-3 turbochargers.
The 400 appeared on 4 July 1986 and was another 3 metres longer than the 300 with room for 168 passengers. In May 1987 the 500, the smallest and last series of the second generation, finally appeared. In November 1993, Boeing announced the development of the third generation, which included a new improved and enlarged wing, higher cruising speeds, longer ranges, more economical maintenance and improved avionics.
Southwest Airlines initiated this series on January 14, 1994, when it ordered 63 700 series aircraft, the successor to the 300 series, which made their maiden flight on February 9, 1997 and were delivered for the first time on December 17 of the same year. The 800 made its maiden flight on 31 July 1997, replacing the 400 series and the 600 series, which replaced the 500 series. 737-900 for 179 passengers with a range of 5,000 km is the penultimate member.
Demand for the 900 Series Boeing rose to the B-737-900ER on October 18, 2005. In the mid-80s and early 90s two accidents marked the history of this aircraft. Inexplicably, the planes assumed a "life of their own", i.e. the planes rotated in turns of more than 90º.
And it was not until the end of the 80s that a United Airlines flight suffered this misfortune (several sharp curves shook the flight). Unfortunately, the plane crashed in a park and they all died on board. But with a flight that arrived safely on the ground and the crew safely, investigators had endless possibilities to solve the case.
It was in the mid 90's when the researchers concluded that there was a problem with the hydraulic engine that controlled the rotation of the aircraft. At extreme temperatures this engine was blocked and began a reverse gear like a car, i.e. when the pilots turned to the right, the plane reacted in the opposite direction, i.e. to the left, which caused the crew of the 737 to take such an aircraft to an accident, without a clue how.
This is the longest investigation in aviation history, 10 years. The hydraulic controls that control the rotation of the aircraft were replaced by Boeing worldwide, causing the company losses of millions, but making the flights more efficient and safer. Edit] VariantsThe 737 models can be divided into three generations, including nine important variants.

On July 5, 2005, during the government of President Álvaro Uribe Vélez, the Colombian Air Force acquired a FAC 0001 marked F37BBJ 737 for the transport of the President, equipped with the President's defence and comfort systems.
A Boeing 737 de la primary generation cabin. It is the first generation of the Boeing 737 and also the first to go into series production. edit] Series 100The original model of this family was the 737-100, which was again the smallest model. Only 30 737-100 were ordered and delivered, because at the request of the airlines the 100 series was improved, which resulted in the 200 series; currently there is no 737-100 in use or able to fly.
Boeing's prototype is on display at the Flight Museum in Seattle, Washington. The Boeing 737 Series 200 was designed for short- and medium-haul flights, as its fuel range is approximately 4 hours, equivalent to 2,580 km (1,400 nautical miles).
It is a twin-engine aircraft equipped with Pratt & Whitney engines located under each wing and equipped with a reversing system. One of these is automatically activated in emergency mode when the aircraft is flying at an altitude of 14,000 feet (about 4,250 m) and under pressure of 130 kg/cm² (1,850 psi).
Since 1976, a Boeing 737-200 with the nickname Camastron (because it is an old or past generation aircraft) was intended for transport by the President of the Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela until 2002; this aircraft circled the world in 1987 and was the first Venezuelan military aircraft to do so. From 2002, this aircraft was replaced by an Airbus 319CJ.
The series, now called Classics by Boeing, consists of the following models: 737-300 by Air Malta Series 300The prototype of the -300 left the Renton factory on 17 January 1984 and made its maiden flight on 24 February 1984.
6] After receiving the flight certificate on November 14, 1984, USAir received its first aircraft on November 28, 1984. 7 ] As a very favorite craft, Boeing received 1985 252 orders for it, during the production time more than a thousand. 8] The 300 series remained in production until 1999, when the last aircraft with ZK-NGJ registration was delivered to Air New Zealand on 17 December 1999.

The -300 passenger can also be converted into a cargo version. The 737-400 design was introduced in 1985 to close the gap between the 737-300 and 757-200 and to compete with the Airbus A 320.
It is an extension from 737-300 to 3.45 metres for up to 168 passengers. It includes a star wheel to prevent the tail from touching the runway during take-off. The aircraft was also fitted with a new windscreen as standard. The 737-400F was not a model supplied by Boeing, but a conversion of the 737-400 as an exclusive cargo aircraft.
The Alaska Airlines was the first airline to convert one of its 400 scheduled aircraft to a capacity of 10allets. 11] The airline converted two more aircraft, half of which were designed for passengers and half for cargo. The 737-500 was introduced in 1987 by Southwest Airlines with an order of 20 aircraft and flew for the first time on 30 June 1989.
12] A single prototype flew the 375 hours required for the certification process, and on 28 February 1990 Southwest Airlines received its first aircraft. 7] The 737-500 became a favorite of several Russian airlines, with Aeroflot-Nord, Rossiya Airlines, S7 Airlines, Sky Express, Transaero and Yamal Airlines buying it second hand to replace obsolete Soviet aircraft and/or expand their fleets.
A modification of the -500 to freight mode is possible, no aircraft of the 500 series was changed to this mode. In 1997 this model became the presidential aircraft of the Government of the Republic of Chile. edit] Boeing 737 Next GenerationThis series, the most modern and updated of all, consists of the following models: It is characterized by new technologies such as: CFM-56-7 engines update, which is 7% more effective than the Series 3, which is used in the classic line.
Increased fuel storage capacity and increased maximum take-off weight. New, newly designed dashboard with 6 LC displays and state-of-the-art avionics technology. Improvements in the passenger cabin similar to those of the Boeing 777 and Boeing 757-300.
Extended flight range, optimized for international travel. A Virgin Blue Boeing 737-700, which takes off from Adelaide International Airport (2005)  Series 600The 737-600 was first launched in 1999 with the airline SAS (Scandinavian Airlines System), this series has suffered weak sales. It is the direct replacement for the 737-500 and competes with the Airbus A318.
As with all B737NG series, it has optional wing extensions (winglets upwards to save a small percentage of fuel). AirTran Airways 737-7BDThe 737-700 was founded in 1993 by Southwest Airlines and went into operation in 1998. A conversion to the executive model BBJ1 is offered, it has the strongest wings and landing gear of the 737-800 and the longest flight range, as it has additional fuel tanks.
The latest variant of the 737-700 is the -700C, a cabriolet version between passenger and cargo aircraft, known as combined mode, with a large door in the tail of the aircraft. edit] 737-700ERBoeing released this version on January 31, 2006 with the Japanese airline All Nippon Airways as the first customer to receive the first aircraft on February 16, 2007.
The 737-700ER is the commercial version of the BBJ1 and the 737-700IGW. Like the BBJ1, it combines the wing and reinforced landing gear of the 737-800. It offers a range of 5,510 nautical miles and a capacity for 126 passengers when configured in 2 classes.
edit] Series 800The 737-800 is an extension of the -700 fuselage as well as a direct replacement of the 400 series and contributes to the fact that Boeing also discontinued the McDonell Douglas, MD-80 and MD-90 models after they were taken over by Boeing. The 737-800 can carry 162 passengers when configured in two classes or 189 passengers in a single class, and competes with the Airbus Airbus A320.
An executive version of the BBJ2 and 737-800ERX (Extended Range Model) is available as a military version. For many airlines in the United States, the 800 series was used as a replacement for the old Boeing 727-200. The 900The 737-900 Series Alaska Airlines was their first customer to launch it in 1997 and put it into service in 2000.
This variant retains some important aspects of the -800, such as the initial configuration, seating arrangement, maximum take-off weight and capacity. Series 900ERThe 737-900ER is the latest version of the 737 family. It was introduced as a continuation of the Boeing 757-200 range, which was discontinued in 2004.
It features an additional pair of escape doors and other improvements to increase seating capacity to 180 passengers in a 2-class configuration or to 215 passengers in one class. The additional capacity of the fuel and the standard singlets improves the range compared to other 737NG variants.
The first 900ER left the production line in Renton, USA, on August 8, 2006 for its first customer, Lion Air. On April 27, 2007, Boeing delivered the first 737-900ERs to Lion Air. 15] The aircraft offers a special dual paint finish that combines Lion Air's on the fin and Boeing's Dreamliner colors on the fuselage.
From 737-900ER, Lion Air has ordered 30 fixed options plus 30 options to be delivered by 2013.
