You can buy a private jet for cheap, second-hand
- they often cost much less than a million euros, even between 120,000 € and 1 million
- this price compared to the typical new light private jet, which costs between € 2,500,000 and € 10 million
- economical to purchase, less to maintain, like any private jet
- depending on the frequency of your private flights, maintaining a private jet can cost anywhere from 100,000 to one million euros per year, fuel included.
A private jet can be a very profitable investment, especially if it is used for business, carrying employees and customers, sometimes being able to land very close to its destination, taking advantage of a network of airports for private jets that in Europe is 10 times more prevalent than that for airliners. We can in fact count on more than 3000 airports, against around 300 airports for airliners.
The world’s cheapest private jets, starting with the most expensive
- You can find a used Cirrus Vision, a single-engine private jet about which I have written a lot here, for a little over a million euros, if you buy one of the first models of 2016. It is the only private jet equipped with a parachute that can save the plane and passengers in the event of a breakdown during the flight. It has a low maintenance cost, because it has a single engine. The Cirrus Vision jet also has an automatic landing system that allows you to land at the nearest airport with the push of a single button, invaluable if the pilot feels unwell. Its technical specifications: Max passengers: 7, Pilot included; Cabin width 5.1 ft (1.56 m) Cabin height 4.1 ft (1.24 m). Performance: Rate of climb 490 m, 1509 ft / min; Maximum operating altitude 9,448.8m 31,000 ft; Maximum cruising speed 576 km / h 311 KTAS; Landing distance 1628 ft (496 m); Take off distance 620 m, 2036 ft.
- A 2002 or 2003 Cessna Citation Mustang can be purchased for around € 600,000. Launched in 2002, this small private jet has an operating cost 15% lower than its direct competitors Embraer Phenom 100E and HondaJet, which are faster. The cockpit has a highly efficient Garmin 1000 avionics system. It can be flown by one person, and has the capacity to climb to 3,000 feet or more than 1,000 m per minute. It can carry up to six people at a speed of 390 mph or 628 km / h, with a range of 1,300 miles or 2,092 km.
- The Eclipse 500 can be bought for a fairly low price, around € 400,000 for a 2006-2008 jet. Indeed, since the release of the 550 model, the Eclipse 500 has seen its used prices collapse. It has roughly the same performance as the Cessna Citation Mustang, i.e. a range of 1,300 miles or 2,092 km, carrying up to six people with a single pilot, at a higher speed, 425 miles per hour , or 684 km / h. It has the capacity to climb to 3,000 feet or more than 1,000 m per minute.
- The Cessna Citation Bravo can carry up to 11 passengers, has a speed of 430 mph or 692 km / h, with a range of 1,998 miles, or 3,215 km. One of these private jets from the early years, 1979 to 1982, can be found on the second-hand market for around € 400,000.
- The Learjet 31 A gives you more speed, 515 mph or 429 km / h, with a range of 1,877 miles or 3,021 km. This private jet can be bought second-hand at a price close to 350,000 €, especially if one buys a model of the first years, going from 1990 to 1992. it can climb to an attitude of 51,000 feet, approximately 15,000 m, therefore above the routes of airliners, at a speed of 5,000 feet or 1,750 m per minute.
- The cheapest of all on this list is the Learjet 24D. A private jet of this type, from the years 1966 until about 1970, costs between 100 and 150,000 €. It has a range of 1,695 miles or 2,728 km, with a speed of 472 MPH or 760 km / h.
