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.

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]]. Like it's predecessor, it seems to be a considerably fast aircraft, and possibly inspired on the Learjet 45.

Appearance(s) Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas
Grand Theft Auto V

The Shamal is a multi-role, jet powered business aeroplane in Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas and Grand Theft Auto V, available in the airports of all the three cities in San Andreas.

It's model is based on the Learjet 55 and Learjet 60. Similar unflyable business jets also make multiple appearances in other Grand Theft Auto games.

Description

GTA San Andreas

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.

GTA V

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. Like it's predecessor, it seems to be a considerably fast aircraft, and possibly inspired on the Learjet 45.

Similar business jets

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:
