It has a capacity for four passengers in its normal configuration, but it can carry up to six passengers with a single crew, with optional side facing seat and belted toilet. It has a maximum flying range of 1,178 nmi (2,182 km) with four occupants and NBAA IFR Reserves. As of 1 January 2009, its price was US$ 3.6 million,[4] with the first aircraft delivered in December 2008.[5]
