Emivest Aerospace SJ30-2

    Designer Ed Swearingen drew on decades of aviation experience to create the SJ30, seeking a balance of range, speed, efficiency, and comfort. Starting in the 1980s, Swearingen partnered with several different manufacturers, until eventually Dubai-based Emivest acquired the design. The first two jets were delivered to customers in 2009. The small, swept-back wing provides speed, while extra-large flaps and leading-edge slats allow for slow takeoff and landing to get in and out of small airports. The cabin maintains sea-level pressure even up to 41,000 feet to combat jet lag.
