The Jet is a four-engine twin-deck jet airliner in Grand Theft Auto V. It can be found at Los Santos International Airport. It is the first controllable commercial wide-body aircraft in the HD Universe, and the second in the series after the AT-400 in Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas.

Description

Design

The Jet is based on the Boeing 747-400. It is the second largest controllable vehicle in the game, only smaller than the Cargo Plane. Jets with multiple liveries can be seen taking off and landing at Los Santos International Airport and parked near the terminal. A Jet can be entered pressing the enter vehicle button while standing near the plane. Oddly, no animation exists for entering the plane - the player will simply warp into the cockpit at this point.

Handling

The bulky appearance of the Jet betrays its unrealistic handling. It is on par with the Shamal and the Luxor in this aspect, and it is faster than the two private propeller planes in the game. It is harder to manoeuvre in the air because of its size and weight, but stunts can be easily performed while flying. On the ground, the Jet responds unrealistically quickly to rudder turns. The heaviness of the plane on the ground is only felt when taking off - the body of the aircraft takes a good two to three seconds longer to lift off the ground together with the nose.

The size of the airplane makes it considerably hard to land and impossible to save in the player's hangars - the latter of which is unnecessary, because of the proliferation of Jets around the runway grounds. It is possible, but extremely hard, to land the Jet on the longest runway at Sandy Shores Airfield, as the rocks, fences, and other objects may hit the low-mounted engines and cause the plane to explode on impact. The Jet is obviously too large to land at McKenzie Airfield.

Because of its size and limited destination options, the Jet is best suited for cruising around San Andreas, rather than travelling from point A to point B.

Trivia

  • Because of the simple name, the conspicuous lack of the enter-exit animations, and unrealistic handling, the Jet may have been a late addition to the game, or even an Easter Egg.
    • The Jet is not listed in the BradyGames guide for GTA V, further supporting the above theories.
  • Attacking a NPC-controlled Jet will earn the player three wanted stars, as it constitutes an act of terrorism.
  • The passenger windows of the plane light up at night if the engines are turned on. Realistically, the lights will shut off after a few seconds, as the engines run down, when a pilot exits the plane.
    • The cockpit windows appear to be blacked out from the ground - however, they are actually transparent.
  • The Jet cannot be parked in either protagonist's hangar; although this is a very minor inconvenience, seeing as there are a large number of them conveniently parked around the airport.
  • Molly Schultz is sucked through the engine of an Air Herler Jet in Legal Trouble.
  • The Jet is not available in Grand Theft Auto Online as of patch v1.11. This is likely due to the toll it may take on cloud servers.
