Buying Your Own Private Jet
A jet is no longer a luxury that only the richest companies can afford. In fact, private jet passengers are mostly those in middle management. Purchasing a private jet does make sense when time is of the essence and travelling in style doesn’t hurt either. Here’s a quick run down of things to check if it’s time for you to acquire your own private jet.
If you travel 350 to 400 hours annually, then owning a personal jet is something you should seriously consider. Lower than that, perhaps partial ownership would be a better idea.
Search for private jets for sale and you’ll find a wealth of information on the cost of initial purchase and maintenance of aircraft. You can expect to spend a few million dollars on the initial purchase (financing is often available) and maintenance cost including catering, fuel, pilot salary can add up to hundreds of thousands of dollars a year. Be sure that you can support such expenses before ever considering purchasing a private jet.
