Why own your own private jet?
Buying a private jet gives you full ownership and freedom to use your aircraft. However, leasing a private jet is much cheaper than buying one. Renting allows you to avoid a substantial investment that may not be very profitable. The advantages of private aviation are numerous: flexibility for the passenger, time saving when travelling, a productivity tool for companies, comfort offering serenity, confidentiality and more.
