Private Aircraft Charters on the IAI Astra – History and Highlights

Charter Flight Group offers a vast selection of charter private aircraft for your private air travel to and from domestic and worldwide destinations. One example is the mid-sized Astra business jet manufactured by Israel Aircraft Industries (IAI). These distinctive twin-engine turbo-fan powered business jets have been in regular use since the mid-1980s, mainly for VIP corporate private aircraft charters, and several are currently in use by the U.S. Air National Guard for transport and medevac duties. The private air travel you arrange with Charter Flight Group on the transcontinental Astra jet aircraft offers range, speed and comfort. The Astra’s small but roomy cabin features a forward
galley with cold storage capability, full-width aft lavatory and a skylight window to add illumination in daylight hours. The Astra charter private aircraft has an interior measuring 4.8 feet wide by 17 feet long, and a massive amount of headroom (5.6 feet) compared with other mid-sized business jets. The Astra SPX was renamed Gulfstream G100 when its design was acquired by Gulfstream Aerospace. The airframes are still built by IAI and flown to the U.S. for refitting of the aircraft’s interior.

IAI Astra Specifications

There are three Astra variants available for private aircraft charters, each featuring twin Honeywell TFE731 engines. The Astra 1125, introduced in 1985, supports private air travel with a crew of 2 and can accommodate 6 to 9 passengers. Astra SP business jets were introduced in 1990 with aerodynamic wings and a redesigned airframe, a longer range (maximum of 2,780 nautical miles), and support for private air charters with a crew of 2 and up to 7 passengers. In 1994, IAI improved upon the Astra SP by building the Astra SPX with modified engines to increase the aircraft’s range to nearly 3,000nm, the addition of drag-reducing winglets, and an upgraded avionics system. The Astra SPX business jet also supports a crew of 2, can carry up to 7 passengers, and can sustain a cruise speed of 0.82 Mach.
