Super Long Ranged Jets – Private Jet Cost per Hour

Super Long Ranged Jets - Private Jet Cost per Hour We begin our multi-part article about the approximate private jet cost per hour for each major aircraft category. We will begin with Long Ranged Large Jets or heavy jets. Afterwards, we will discuss large jets, mid sized and super mid sized jets, light jets and very light jets, turboprops and pistons, and finally widebody airliners and VIP airliners. We begin with long ranged jets as they are a tightly knit category, where there majority of the aircraft have the same cabin size and allow very long ranged flights. Notable heavy jets are the Gulfstream G650, the Bombardier Global Express 5000, 6000, and XRS, Dassault’s Falcon 7X, as well as many others. More in depth information can be found on our aircraft guide by choosing Long Range Jet from the categories. The private jet cost per hour for long range jets is usually, if not always $8,000 to $19,000 per hour. This may be quite a range, but keep in mind these rates vary greatly depending on wether these aircraft are chartered in the united states or elsewhere in the world, the hourly rate for private aircraft in the united states is usually less costly than chartering in Europe or Asia due to a large amount of available jets in the united states which creates competition in terms of aircraft’s hourly rental rate. Also, aircraft such as the Gulfstream G500 date back to the 1990s, and while well maintained and completely refurbished on the interior, these remain older aircraft, which make them less costly to charter per hour. These are real world figures from our database of over 10,000 aircraft worldwide. The cost per hour will

Falcon 8X rolled out in in Mérignac

Falcon 8X Roll-Out in in Mérignac Christmas came early this year when Dassault Aviation rolled out the Falcon 8X yesterday at Aéroport de Bordeaux-Mérignac (BOD) in Mérignac, France. The aircraft has been sufficiently ground tested and was ready to be unveiled in all of it’s glory. In the first quarter of 2015, the Falcon 8X should make its maiden flight, meaning the Falcon 8X will be joining the Dassault Falcon family very soon. The Falcon 8X is based off of the already successful falcon 7X, which is a large cabin aircraft capable of nearly 6,000 nautical mile range at a decent speed. The Falcon 8X offers a slightly longer cabin as well as new engine upgrades and an extended range brought about by aerodynamic modifications and a larger fuel capacity. The Falcon 8X also takes other attributes from the Falcon 7X, it is capable of much shorter takeoffs than jets of its size, and is of course very fuel efficient for a large cabin jet. The Falcon 8X offers 3 Pratt & Whitney Canada turbofan engines that deliver more thrust but also lower fuel consumption, these engines allow the Falcon 8X to take off in under 4,000 ft (which is a figure seen by light jets and other small aircraft). Along with takeoff requirement improvements, the Falcon 8X is capable of flying a maximum of mach .90 and a range of 6,450 nautical miles (albeit at a lower speed of mach .80). Internal space is refined as compared to the Falcon 7X, the cabin is now 42.67 ft excluding the cockpit and designated baggage area we have come to love by Dassault. The cabin is 6.17 ft high and 7.67 ft wide, making for a

Advantages of Private Flights

Advantages of Private Flights Whether you’re flying for business or recreational purposes, you can choose to travel on private flights or fly with commercial airlines to get to your desired destination. With many executives looking at elegant private air charters as the most relaxed and dependable form of transportation, here is a glance at the pros and cons of commercial flights vs private flights. Private flights have many advantages. While it’s true that private jet can be lavish and pricy, the actual advantages of soaring on a private aircraft are convenience and efficiency. For instance, you can choose to fly out of any airport you’d like as long as the runway is sufficient for your jet, and as long as there are no restrictions. This is a perfect substitute for having to go through a busier airport. This doesn’t only benefit you in a way to avoid all the busier hubs, if your residence or office is around a general public airport, you can simply choose to take off from there, avoiding all traffic. Another example of how flying private could benefit you would be that you won’t need to arrive an hour or even a half hour before flight time. The jet departs on your order. If you prefer a 7PM departure, no need to arrive at the airport before 6:53PM. And if you are running late, the plane will always wait for you. In many larger metropolitan areas, jets take off and land from minor close-in airports so the commute time is shorter. At FBOs, you are allowed to drive your car onto tarmac up to your aircraft, (in some cases without a security check) and get on while the team loads your baggage into the aircraft. Valet services are available to take your

Private Jet Cost of Ownership vs Private Jet Charter

Private Jet Cost of Ownership versus Charter  Many customers wonder what are the costs of owning or chartering a private jet. Very few realize that a private jet's cost of ownership for is not only a one time payment, but a large challenge. Upkeep costs, fuel costs, parking, registration, refurbishment costs, and of course regular mechanical upkeep can be valued at hundreds of thousand dollars a year, and can quickly add up. Below we will explain a few different scenarios by giving real world examples of three different private jet cost estimation calculations. This learjet 45 is an extended range variant of the lear 40. With a purchase price of $11.5 million, it is in the same price range as its lear 40 counterpart. Firstly, let’s look at a Bombardier Learjet 40. A light jet well known for its range, and a great jet to own for regular travelers. The Learjet 40 usually is configured for 7 or 8 passengers and is very comfortable to fly in, and is known for being a mechanically reliable aircraft. Many prefer the Learjet 35A but the Learjet 35A has been discontinued for 10 years now, which makes buying a new jet is no longer possible. A new Learjet 40 costs approximately $9.5 Million. Where as chartering one costs approximately $2900 an hour, a much more manageable aircraft rate. We must remove the cost of fuel, because a private owner would of course have to pay for his/her own fuel. A standard fuel burn rate comes to approximately $700 an hour, leaving us with a $2200 an hour private jet cost. A basic calculation tells us if one were to fly over 4,318 hours, purchasing the Learjet 40 would be a better option. But realistically, even then,

Private Plane Charter Rates

Private Plane Charter Rates Various types of aircraft are available for charter, and therefor each category of private plane has significantly different private plane charter rates. The smallest type of propellor given aircraft, or pistons can start at $400 an hour as an hourly rate, while the larger intercontinental long range large jets can cost upwards of $14,000 an hour, and can cost as much as $28,000 an hour for large ultra VIP configured airliners. The general prices to be expected as are follows: A domestic flight with 8 passengers or below will cost a total of $3,500 an hour for a light jet and all other costs included for simplicity. These other costs include airport fees, fuel fees, segment and FET taxes, crew fees, and additional fuel fees (if any). At approximately $3,500 an hour we can estimate a flight from New York to Florida (a 3 hour flight) to cost approximately $10,500. But we must not forget that the aircraft would have to return to base, making the estimated price around $21,000. Now these are very basic estimations for a very specific type of aircraft, other aircraft can cost less or more to charter. The way that a charter flight works is by having customers simply use the airtime they are using, as opposed to buying an aircraft in full or partially with a group of others. While the customer may have to traditionally pay for both parts of the flight, this still remains a cheaper option than other method of buying private jet time. Now in the case of an already returning aircraft, it would be possible to only pay the $10,500 originally proposed as the aircraft would essentially already be headed

The Most Expensive Private Jets Available

The Most Expensive Private Jets Available   Ultra VIP 747 The Boeing 747 is known for being the one of the notoriously fuel consuming aircraft, with a very high cost of operation. A brand new 747-8 can cost upwards of $350 million in a standard configuration. It is technically possible to spend over $80 million building a custom ultra VIP interior easily making it the most expensive private jet of all time. Boeing 747s are becoming increasingly difficult to find for private ownership, as many of the 747s in circulation have been moved to the Middle East, Asia, and Europe. Since the Boeing 747 offers near-unparralleded cabin space, as well as massive intercontinental range, it makes the Boeing 747 VIP one of the greatest private aircraft to have, as well as the title for most expensive private jet. Boeing BBJ3 The BBJ3 is technically the most expensive private jet, as it is built for ultra VIP configurations right off of the assembly line, while the larger 747 is configured with a standard 1-3 class configuration including hundreds of seats. The BBJ3 is based on the preexisting Boeing 737-900ER, an extended range variant of the 737-900, this makes the BBJ3 capable of flying nearly 5,500 nautical miles, a tad shorter than the range of the BBJ2, but with a much larger cabin and higher airspeed. Costing anywhere from $75-90 million, this widebody easily makes the list of most expensive private jets. Gulfstream G650ER Gulfstream’s latest and greatest ultra long business jet is capable of flying 7,500 nautical miles, utterly destroying the competing long range business jets and even commercial airliners. Costing a hefty $64.5 million, this jet is the most expensive private jet in it’s category

How to Choose the Best Private Jet

How to Choose the Best Private Jet for Charter Choosing the best private jet for your trip can make a huge difference in airtime, comfort, and price. The basics of private jet charter involve receiving an online price on our booking engine displaying the best possible matches by price per category. The results returned often include the best private jet, but making the choice of best private jet depends on category, destination, range, and availability. We start first by choosing the correct category, choosing the best private jet can sometimes involve not using a private jet at all, but a piston or turboprop. For short range flights, under 1000 nautical miles, very often if air speed is not an issue and you don’t mind leaving slightly earlier to make it to the destination on time, a turboprop or piston is a great alternative. Cabin noise levels are comparable to a jet with new advances in turboprop technology, and turboprops and pistons alike can be very comfortable for a small flight with under 5 passengers. Though at this category of short distance flights, a VLJ (very light jet) would be the best private jet for the trip if flight time is of the essence. A VLJ would be able to maintain up to two times the speed of a turboprop or piston. For small or mid sized domestic flights, light jets are the best private jet available for up to 8 passengers, while some light jets might be tight for 8 passengers, other alternatives are available for large groups. Most light jets are capable of flying up to 1500 nmi without an issue (depending on passenger load and wind speed) and are usually configured with seating

Private Jet Charter Guide Part IV

Private Jet Charter Guide -  Part IV Welcome to part IV of our private jet charter guide. In this section we will summarize all of the factors that go in to building a private jet charter trip, and what sort of things can impact your trip both positively and negatively. In part I of our private jet charter guide, we went through the steps through which our example customer (John) and example trip would take. We started off with Johns request to and followed the trip from there. We discussed when it is beneficial to book and secure your aircraft (approximately 5-7 days for private jets and 60 days for large scale airliner-sized trips with over 200 passengers). We noted how John was able to secure an online price very similar to the final price he received in his hard quote. We also discussed how behind the scenes, the Aircharter Charter Team was setting up fallback aircraft in case of any point of failure. Going back to empty legs and how empty legs work, for a round trip such as the one John requested in our example trip, there is almost no benefit to flying on an empty leg, as another aircraft will have to be chartered for the return trip (and said aircraft would have to go back to base, negating the saving brought about by flying an empty leg) but for one way flights, we came to conclusion that the earlier you can request and book your trip, the more of a chance there is for finding an empty leg. Of course high traffic city pairs such as New York to Los Angeles almost always have available aircraft for empty legs due

Private Jet Charter Guide part III

Private Jet Charter Guide part III   Many conditions can impact the price and details of a private jet charter, and here in part III of our private jet charter guide, we will list and explain the most common fees expected from a charter quote. Each individual part of these fees come together to build the final price you pay for your trip, and it is very important to know which factors can change the price or accessibility of a trip. We begin with some details that can severely impact the price you expect to pay: Runway length - Smaller aircraft don’t necessarily require enormous runway lengths and can often land at smaller, communal airports. But larger aircraft can require runway lengths of over 6000 ft, meaning a larger airport will be chosen to fulfill the trip. Larger airports tend to have higher fees, while smaller airports are more reasonable. Wind speed / traveling direction - It is well known that air currents can radically change to total amount of time required to fulfill a trip. The details are complex when factoring in random wind patterns and mountain formations as well as aircraft cruise routes. This can be seasonal or just simply random but will make a difference in the total price of your quote Availability - Availability is the most important aspect of private jet charter. There is a best aircraft for every trip, an aircraft that is very close to the departure location for a reasonable price, and often those aircraft can be booked indefinitely. Availability can make the difference between a $7,000 flight and a $11,000 flight with the same exact itinerary. In the case of an unavailable aircraft, the next step
