The Westwind II is a staple in the midsize jet category. Produced by Israel Aircraft Industries from 1980 onward, the Westwind II is an extension of the previous Westwind, which began production in the mid-1960s. The longstanding tradition with these aircraft exhibits their durability and supreme engineering. The Westwind II can seat up to seven passengers and travel up to 2536 nautical miles. As a midsize jet, the cruising range is one of the longest amongst competitors, which makes it a strong option for long distance trips.
