In their attempts to make the best comparison, some manufacturers list Range Map with IFR reserves and some with VFR reserves. Some list performance with two people on board at economic cruise speeds, and some with full payload at maximum cruise speeds.
There is no agreement on a “Standard” person: Some manufacturers quote their range with passengers weighing 170 lbs, with baggage. Similarly, mentioning fuel burn without referring to speed can lead to confusion as lowering the speed reduces the fuel burn.

In presenting the Stratos 714 performance data, it is endeavored to avoid such temptations and to present the performance data in as unbiased a fashion as possible.
The nearest to an accepted common standard for direct comparison of aircraft performance data is that used in the Purchase Planning Handbook issued every year by Business and Commercial Aviation Magazine. This sets a common format for presenting data and a common set of missions to be used in performing comparisons.
The result is an aircraft that is uniquely suited to transport four people in cabin-class comfort at speeds and ranges that no other aircraft can match for its size or acquisition cost.
