And, in many cases, it may also be possible to arrange for a chauffeur to pick you up directly from the jet itself, saving yet more time than if you had to pass through the airport and meet them on the other side.
If much of your travel is for business purposes then a jet offers much more privacy to conduct meetings on board. As you will only have passengers of your choice travelling with you, there’s no need to keep your voices lowered or to try and shield documents when discussing sensitive topics.
If you own a private jet then you are at liberty to customise it in whatever way you would like, in order to ensure that it delivers exactly what you need in terms of comfort and practicality. You can add an entertainment system and a luxury bathroom, you can choose your preferred layout for a work environment (conference table, plug sockets, television screens etc.) and fit seats which adapt into beds in the cabin if you wish. You can also upgrade the avionics package in the cockpit to suit your needs.
You will also be able to bring your own choice of food and drink on board.
Possessing a private plane can be a great boon for the reasons we’ve already mentioned above, but have you considered how it could be of help to you financially, as well?
Utilising it as a charter jet for others can help offset the cost of initial purchase and may even include tax benefits for you. This also means that your aircraft can be kept flying, even if you don’t have any need to use it for a while, which is much better for it mechanically than sitting idle for long periods of time.
If you like the idea of your jet making you money but don’t fancy organising this yourself, you can employ a private aircraft management firm to handle the logistical and administrative side of this for you.
While spiralling depreciation means that after around ten years a private jet has lost most of its value, if they are flown regularly and maintained properly then they can often be used for decades before they need to be taken out of service. This means that once purchased, your private jet could be with you for a very long time, without the need to spend millions more on regularly upgrading to a new one.
If you have owned it from new then you will also have the reassurance of knowing that the correct maintenance schedule has been adhered to, as well as having complete documentation of how often and how far it has been flown.
