The ten-passenger Westwind I was produced in 1972 with a stretched fuselage. In 1980, IAI announced a second go-around, the Westwind II, with redesigned wings and the addition of winglets. The Westwind II used advanced technology of the time, while maintaining the price/performance ratio of its predecessor.
The cabin is relatively small but features a divan, common in larger, executive-class business jets. The Westwind II is capable of accommodating seven passengers in a four seat club and a three-seat, side-facing divan. Across from the divan is a galley/refreshment center. A full-width lavatory is also a cabin feature. The cabin measures 4.9 feet high, 4.8 feet wide and 15.9 feet long.
Although outdated, the Westwind II remains a viable option in the medium-range private jet category. Its airframe makeover is accountable for major performance improvements over its predecessor.
