History of the private jet

The first Lear Jet flight took place in 1963 and many regard this as the first private jet flight.

Our infographic traces the history of private jet flights since, from this historic first flight; to the launch of Gulfstream jets; to Paris Le Bourget Airport opening as a dedicated private jet terminal; and to the debut of the bestselling Citation jets. And we look ahead to what the future may bring.
