C-38 CourierItem Number: 1386
The aircraft is in service with the 201st Airlift Squadron, Andrews Air Force Base. The introduction of the C-38A has dramatically improved the squadron's effectiveness. The C-38A flies farther, faster and more efficiently than any other similarly priced business jet aircraft and provides the necessary communications technology. Typical cruise speed is Mach 0.80 with a long range cruising speed of Mach 0.75. Maximum range is 2,950 nautical miles, providing U.S. coast-to-coast capability under virtually any conditions. The C-38A offers substantially greater cabin volume and enhanced passenger comfort for long-range travel, including an aft lavatory. Its oval cabin cross-section provides ample room for in-flight comfort. Remarkably, it offers these benefits at a lower operating cost than its competitors.
