Should You Buy a Private Jet?

Private jet ownership isn’t for everyone.

For the occasional flyer, on-demand charters make the most sense. Above this, jet cards are a great solution. However, for those who will be flying more than 300 hours per year – either as an individual or corporation – private jet ownership can start to make sense.

Of course, ownership being the right solution for you will depend on a number of variables. However, if you have the budget for purchasing and operating your own jet, then it is a viable solution. Private jet ownership provides greater certainty of availability, absolute customization, reliability, ease-of-use, status, and more.

If you answer yes to any of the following points, you should consider private jet ownership.

Dedicated Aircraft Choice

When purchasing a private jet you can choose whichever aircraft you want. If you prefer one model over another, you can purchase the one you want. You choose which aircraft will suit you best. When you purchase it you will then always have your aircraft ready and waiting for you.

Option to Upgrade

Most private jet owners hold on to their aircraft for 3 – 5 years. One of the most common reasons to change aircraft is to upgrade to a larger or new model. Wholly owning an aircraft provides the ability to sell your current aircraft and upgrade to a better or more suitable aircraft. 

Lower Costs with Higher Utilization

Chartering a private jet is a great option for the occasional flyer. However, if you fly a lot you will be paying a premium without holding onto an asset. If you own a private jet, the more you fly, the lower the cost per hour. Regular flying, therefore, can result in a lower cost per hour when owning compared with renting. 

High Availability with No Peak Days

Owning a private jet means that it is just yours. You aren’t competing with other customers trying to get your hands on an aircraft. Therefore, if you make last-minute flying decisions, change plans at the last moment, or fly during peak days (such as major holidays), owning a private jet gives you high availability. Availability that you just can’t get through other flying methods. If you have meetings that you just can’t miss, owning a private jet provides a level of unmatched availability.
