Making Sense of Your Many Private Jet Options
Sep 17, 2021
Not too long ago, if you wanted to avoid all of the many hassles of commercial air travel and fly private, your options were fairly limited. You could buy your own business jet or charter an entire executive aircraft, and that was pretty much it.
Today, there are more ways to fly on a private jet than ever before, from fractional ownership to shared flights – how do you know which option is best for you? Making the decision is based on three things:
- Your budget
- The locations you most often fly between
- How many times a year you wish to fly private
Buy Your Own Plane
Many people still have the financial ability, the need, and/or the desire to purchase their own private jet. However, unless you fly more than 100 hours a year, no matter how rich you are, it simply is not your best option. For those that fly less than that, say between 50 and 100 hours a year, fractional jet ownership was the first alternative to owning or leasing your own private jet.
As a fractional jet owner, you buy into part-time use of the aircraft. There are some good things about fractional jet ownership, primarily, you do not have to worry about management and operational costs and issues such as insurance maintenance, crew expenses, etc., as you would if you owned your own jet.
However, the fractional jet ownership model is very similar to owning a real estate timeshare, and like a timeshare, it comes with its set of disadvantages. You get locked into a long-term contract, you are locked into only one or maybe a few airplanes you can fly, and there are no guarantees of availability when you want or need to fly.
