The phenomenon of VLJ (Very Light Jets) has greatly influenced the Executive Aviation sector. These relatively small but advanced performance aircraft have entered the market and have become a common part of the air traffic. Although they are essentially short-range or medium-range aircraft, their owners take off on long-haul flights from time to time. Flight autonomy plays an important role, and everything must be meticulously prepared. During the preparations, it is essential to choose a route in relation to the VLJ equipment and consequently to the backup airports. Flyovers in oceanic areas are "bread and butter" for an operations control center (OCC). Today there are aircraft capable of making these transoceanic flights non-stop. Aircraft like the G650, G550, F7X or Global 6000 can fly at heights that commercial airlines rarely use and, thanks to their speed, do not slow aircraft traffic on tracks or OTS (Organized Track System). They are also less susceptible to changes in weather. Of course, it is easier to plan ocean flights with aircraft that have a long range, but doing the same work for shorter range VLJs or insufficient navigation equipment becomes a much bigger challenge. Unlike large commercial jets and long-range executive jets, VLJs take these flights rather irregularly, and their teams do not have as much experience with such a flight. That is why the preparation steps should be especially consistent and take into account all the details before departure. Crossing the oceans has some specifics, and there are rules that must be followed. This includes ensuring the aircraft's emergency equipment for arctic areas, communication (HF, CPDLC) as well as navigation equipment (LRNS, ADS-B / C) or ability to fly in RVSM airspace. The most memorable ocean crossing of a VLJ was probably the first flight of the Embraer Phenom 100 from the United States to Europe. It occurred in 2009, shortly after being put into operation. Since then, many Phenom 100 aircraft have crossed the Atlantic Ocean in both directions.
