Private Jet Comparisons

Fractional Light Jet Programs

  • Typically you are buying a 1/16 to 1/4 share in a light jet. You can expect to pay from $300,000 up to $500,000 up front for that share for a three year commitment.
  • If you total all of the owner share values, the owners are over paying for the plane by a factor of two to three times the planes market value.
  • In addition each share owner pays a monthly management fee starting at $8,000 to $10,000 per month.
  • Finally, you are charged for your actual usage of the aircraft at an hourly rate of $1,900 to $2,200 per hour. Prime Hours and Holidays are also restricted.
  • Total yearly usage of 100 hours will cost you in excess of $700,000 per year or $7,000 per hour.
  • Current Lease rates for Light Jets are nearly $10,000 per flight Hour.

Part 135 Light Jet Charter or Jet Cards

  • You are billed at an hourly rate of $3,000 to $3,800 per hour for your flight, plus additional fees.
  • The issue becomes, if you are staying at your destination for several days the plane is going to return to its home base and then return to get your party for the return flight which essentially doubles your travel costs. Instead of 100 hrs of travel you are doubling your costs.
  • Your travel of 100 hours can easily become 150 to 200 hours for an annual cost exceeding $600,000 per year or $6,000 per hour.
