Obviously a new aircraft type for them but this is the first time I have seen this. Anyone know how long they have been operating the type? I did a search and N145QS is indeed registered to NetJets. Hmmm...

Don't think they are that old, but 1-2 years is more like it. N102QS I believe is their earliest frame, cn RK-380, with N106QS, cn RK-381, right behind. N105QS was reg'd back in Nov. 2005. N116QS, cn RK-385, was reg'd in 6/05.

Quoting UA777222 (Reply 1): They serve a major market as they have a huge cabin but not the gulfstream range.
But as the other posters have said, they seem to have a few of them... we get them thoughout the day at TEB, but nowhere near as many as their other types... The only thing more rare than their beechjets seems to be their King-Air 200 (200QS), it's the only one I've ever seen them operate...

Quoting UA777222 (Reply 1): They currently operate a handful of these aircraft. They serve a major market as they have a huge cabin but not the gulfstream range. They have had these aircraft for close to 3-4 years now.
Quoting EMBQA (Reply 3): A huge cabin...???? LOL...!! It's the smallest plane in the NetJets fleet....
