==Description==

[[File:Shamal-GTASA-parked.jpg|A parked Shamal in GTA San Andreas.|thumb]]The aircraft model is based on multiple Learjet business jets. The body is inspired on the Learjet 36A, while the wings are more similar to Learjet models after the 60. The aircraft nose is considerably longer than most Learjets, also resembling a later model.
The Shamal is available to the player since the beginning of GTA San Andreas, in the [[Los Santos International Airport]], acquirable by trespassing over the security booth if the player still hasn't got the pilots license. It is a considerably fast jet, being on par with the [[Rustler]], and due to it's availability, the Shamal is a good choice for players who are just learning to fly jets, as its handling is balanced and it's easy to land on runways. Also, despite its interior size, it can only transport the player.
 
   
 
The most prominent appearance of the Shamal is during "[[Freefall]]", when the plane's interior can be seen. The size of the interior appears larger than usual for an aircraft with a relatively small fuselage, and the interior incongruously features 16 windows (9 on the left and 7 on the right) when the plane features only 8 outside.

A similar business jet, seemingly pilotable, is also seen in the trailer and in one of the screenshots for Grand Theft Auto V, implying that it will most likely return as a functional plane.

The Shamal is also used in the mission "[[Saint Mark's Bistro]]", where it is flown by Carl Johnson to [[Liberty City (3D Universe)|Liberty City]] and back.

[[File:Shamal-GTAV-front.png|A parked Shamal in GTA V.|thumb]]The Shamal appeared in the first trailer and later in one of the screenshots for Grand Theft Auto V, implying that it would most likely return as a functional plane. This was confirmed by the gameplay trailer, that showed the Shamal being flown over the [[Land Act Dam]].

  +
It is based on modern Learjet models in GTA V, namely the Learjet 45, with some inspiration from a Cessna Citation 560. It also has 16 passenger windows in total (8 on each side). The role of the aircraft is now different though - Instead of being a business jet, like in San Andreas, it is now a commuter jet, being owned by multiple airliners for short regional flights. The role of a private jet is now attributed to the [[Luxor]], a plane very similar to the Shamal (Only with a black paint scheme) also manufactured by Buckingham.
  +
  +
The Shamal is featured in the singleplayer mission [[Caida Libre]], where it is shot down by Michael De Santa and then chased by Trevor as it falls down in the desert. It is also stolen by players for Lester in the online mission [[Landing Strip]].

===Liveries===

The Shamal is available to the player since the beginning of GTA San Andreas, in the [[Los Santos International Airport (3D Universe)|Los Santos International Airport]], acquirable by trespassing over the security booth if the player still hasn't got the pilots license. It is a considerably fast jet, being on par with the [[Rustler]], and due to it's availability, the Shamal is a good choice for players who are just learning to fly jets, as its handling is balanced and it's easy to land on runways.

===GTA V===
  +
  +
The Shamal is now a much faster aircraft, beating any propeller-powered plane in the game and being on-par with the Luxor as the third fastest aircraft in the game, only beaten by the [[Vestra]] and the [[P-996 Lazer]]. Similar to San Andreas, it is also available from the start in [[Los Santos International Airport (HD Universe)|Los Santos International Airport]] and, due to having a great and responsive handling, it remains as a great plane for learning to pilot and similar to the Luxor, players can easily evade police attention if they didn't purchase a hangar yet. In the hands of a moderately skilled pilot, it can easily win any multiplayer races. Thanks to the speed and handling of the aircraft, it also has a great capability for performing stunts, being able to steer and perform aileron rolls extremely fast.

It can be purchased for $1,150,000 in the in-game [[ElitasTravel.com]] website.

Similar unflyable business jets also make multiple appearances in other Grand Theft Auto games.

It is based on modern Learjet models in GTA V, namely the Learjet 45, with some inspiration from a Cessna Citation 560. It also has 16 passenger windows in total (8 on each side).

The Shamal is featured in the singleplayer mission Caida Libre, where it is shot down by Michael De Santa and then chased by Trevor as it falls down in the desert. It is also stolen by players for Lester in the online mission Landing Strip.

LiveriesEdit

Similar to the Jet, the Shamal bears the liveries of multiple airlines in Grand Theft Auto V.

PerformanceEdit

GTA San AndreasEdit

The Shamal is available to the player since the beginning of GTA San Andreas, in the Los Santos International Airport, acquirable by trespassing over the security booth if the player still hasn't got the pilots license. It is a considerably fast jet, being on par with the Rustler, and due to it's availability, the Shamal is a good choice for players who are just learning to fly jets, as its handling is balanced and it's easy to land on runways. Also, despite its interior size, it can transport only the player.

GTA VEdit

The Shamal is now a much faster aircraft, beating any propeller-powered plane in the game and being on-par with the Luxor as the third fastest aircraft in the game, only beaten by the Vestra and the P-996 Lazer. Similar to San Andreas, it is also available from the start in Los Santos International Airport and, due to having a great and responsive handling, it remains as a great plane for learning to pilot and similar to the Luxor, players can easily evade police attention if they didn't purchase a hangar yet. In the hands of a moderately skilled pilot, it can easily win any multiplayer races. Thanks to the speed and handling of the aircraft, it also has a great capability for performing stunts, being able to steer and perform aileron rolls extremely fast.

It can be purchased for $1,150,000 in the in-game ElitasTravel.com website.

Similar business jetsEdit

Despite none being named as "Shamal" or even accessible to the player, many similar private jets appear as an uncontrollable and mostly stationary aircraft in the series:
