Purchasing, a jet, however, does come at a cost.

Offering a complete catalog of new and pre-owned aircraft, Flex Air Charters has the local market data and know-how to facilitate aircraft purchases that meet all your professional and personal expectations.

Passenger & Weight Capacity

Firstly, private jet buyers should consider the size of the aircraft they are looking for. Private jets range from small turboprops or light jets, midsize or super-midsize jets, heavy jets or luxury executive airliners. Given that passenger capacity as well as distances travelled are key factors, the size of the aircraft will be important. Smaller planes tend to only fly short distances before refueling, while larger planes can be expensive to fly is distances are short.

The Right Aircraft for the Right Price

Among the aircraft available, a brand new Cessna Citation M2, a light jet that seats seven, lists at $4.5 million at base price; the Learjet 75, a midsize jet that seats nine, lists at $13.5 million; and the luxurious Gulfstream G650, a heavy jet that seats up to 10, lists at $64.5 million. There is also the 17-seat Bombardier Global 6000 that lists at $60.5 million.

Since an aircraft’s life-cycle is calculated in flight hours rather than age, private jets tend to be serviceable for several decades. Also, buyers may choose to purchase pre-owned aircraft to save money. Used aircraft prices range from $3.5 million for a Cessna Citation M2, $7 million for a Learjet 75, $62 million for a Gulfstream G650 and $50 million for a Bombardier Global 6000.

Maintaining Your Aircraft

Buyers should also consider maintenance costs, which can ascend to several hundreds of thousands or millions of dollars a year. Brand new jets are expensive, but include a full warranty to cover repairs and replacements in the first few years. Other costs for private jet owners include safety inspections, insurance, fuel, hangar space and pilot and crew salary and expenses.
