The Boeing BBJ is a member of the venerated 737 family.
The BBJ is a descendant of commercial aircraft, designed to last decades. The Boeing Business Jet’s full name is the BBJ 737-700 IGW. IGW stands for “Increased Gross Weight,” much of which is due to its massive cabin and increased fuel capacity.
The BBJ is powered by two CFM International CFM56-7B27 turbofan engines, each of which provide 27,300 pounds of thrust.
The aircraft, despite its size and its maximum takeoff weight of 171,000 pounds, can take off from a sea level runway in 5,885 feet. At an altitude of 5,000 feet and a temperature of 77°F, the required runway distance increases to 9,645 feet.
It climbs straight to 37,000 feet in 25 minutes. At this altitude, the BBJ achieves its high speed cruise of 541 mph. At 39,000 feet, it gets optimal long range cruise performance of 519 mph. Its range, with eight passengers is 6,098 nautical miles.
Boeing BBJ Interior
The cabin has more square footage than some offices – 807 square feet – and measurements well beyond any other private jet: 79.2 feet long, 7.1 feet high and 11.6 feet wide.
The total cabin volume is 5,390 cubic feet. The 5,390 cubic feet of cabin can be configured almost any way desired. Most configurations divide the cabin into four compartments (in addition to a crew rest area). The four compartments generally consist of a board room, a lounge, a VIP bedroom (with a queen-sized bed, if desired), a business office, and two lavatories with showers. Alternate suggested configurations include an office and an exercise room, high-density seating for sixty passengers, or twenty-four extra-large seats for sleeping.
The standard galley, if chosen, comes with a microwave, oven, refrigerator and freezer, a sink with hot and cold water, food storage, and a trash compactor. Entertainment systems generally include two DVD players, two VCRS, three multi-disc CD players, and satellite TV. In other words, the sky is the limit when designing the interior of the BBJ.
