The New Generation of GA Aircraft 15 2.6 Summary VLJs are small, fast, quiet aircraft with very efficient jet engines and short-field capabilities. All of these features contribute to their attractiveness as candidates for personal, business, corpo- rate, or air taxi operations between smaller communities and smaller GA airports. Although other new generation aircraft offer substantial benefits over existing classes of aircraft, VLJs are a new class of aircraft that may open new opportunities for airports that cannot accommodate larger jet aircraft.
