    Three MAX-8 took off this morning and wow! They're super quiet.

    How's your experience with them?

    BOMBARDIER Global 7500 (2020) FAA registry says and it makes sense now that Arthur Blank was there as AMB GROUP LLC is the jet owner (Blanks foundation)

    Yep, I’ve seen several 7500s around. They look totally awesome and have large cabin windows

    Is that a RJ 100 or 200 converted to bizjet?

    Me either. Don’t know if they stretched the 600 series bizjets that much? But I suppose the RJ itself is a stretch of the Challenger jets. I’m more familiar with this Bombardier line of products:

    I think it’s essentially an RJ 200 that they call Challenger 850

    Flight times are bit shorter with those; Trip (flight) plans still strongly encouraged, and always fly in tandem or group formation.

    Absolutely! Although, I can see the cross town trail across the lake about a half kilometer outside my living room window. It's a well marked, frequently travelled route, and a fun way to go into town for coffee, a few groceries, or to visit family.

    I see! Had to google that one. I recall a few years back, a company that had plans to repurpose parked early model RJ’s as business jets and cargo planes. The idea never took off. No pun intended.

    The water crossing requires considerable confidence, commitment, and correct adjustment of COG. Noise complaints are always a factor when flying in close proximity to residential areas. Anyone asks, tell them its an Arctic Cat, and keep moving.

    I won't say that I haven't considered it. I have a couple of travel guitars that I could carry with me when I'd have to hold reserve away from my domicile. There's room in the baggage area, although I'd probably choose to strap it to the back seat.

    @Bushed do the floats have air bladders in them?
