Special Edition: Top Light Jet/Turboprop of 2021 as financed through AOPA Finance
- TBM 850
- Cessna CJ
- Cirrus Vision Jet
It’s interesting that two of the top three sellers on this list are newcomers to the top spots. What’s not surprising is that the TBM 850 tops the list.
The aircraft is master of its class. It’s a perennial value, especially the later 850s. With an affordable and simple upgrade to the NXi avionics suite, you’ve basically got a TBM 900. Also, the performance of the 850 is excellent, it’s kind of best in class. It’s fast. And, a very versatile aircraft for pilot-owners conducting local or regional travel.
The CJ benefits from the exhaustion of other Cessna light jets in the used market—Mustangs, CJ1’s, CJ2’s and CJ3’s. Moreover, the values on the original CJs have remained affordable. Add to that it’s relatively easy to operate single pilot, and has great parts availability and the CJ has good value for performance.
The Cirrus Jet
Four reasons the Vison Jet jumped up on the list. 2021 saw the first-time creation of a secondary market for the product. Second, there’s something about the Cirrus experience and belonging to the Cirrus family. The company does an exceptional job creating a meaningful “owner experience.” Third, the parachute and its safety record cannot be underestimated. Finally, it’s a distinctive, well-designed, single pilot jet.
