  • Cost
  • New Vs. Used Jets
  • Choosing The Best Charter Company
  • Types Of Jets


A private jet is an expensive investment that can cost millions of dollars. There are also hidden costs to consider such as insurance, fuel, catering, and pilots. These are all essential factors for a new buyer to consider while purchasing a private jet. Repairs and maintenance which can ground a plane may be unpredictable which can allow a person to lose money by purchasing the plane at a high price. Therefore, it is essential for a beginner buyer to evaluate the costs of this kind of a purchase.

New Vs. Used Jets

Choosing to buy a new or used jet is important for a new buyer to consider. A down economy results in more used planes on the market and ordering a new jet may take a few years. However, used jets may not provide the best deals. There are certain federal aviation regulations to land at various U.S. airports and using a new jet may take years and extra costs to comply with these regulations. As a result, this will require various fees, such as for inspections.
