An extensive analysis by Aviation International News highlights the safety record of private jet charter and fractional operators
How safe are private jets? A lot of it depends on whether you are talking about the charter and fractional operators or owners flying private aircraft for their non-commercial flights.
If flying privately makes travel safer and easier, figuring out private jet rental pricing can be confusing. We explain some of the variations
You want to charter a private jet from New York to Aspen and you want a large-cabin aircraft. A Gulfstream GIV or something similar sounds nice. You want the lowest price, and you notice checking around there is a big variance. Quotes for GIV and G450 types vary by as much as $25,000! You see other large-cabin jets with prices for much less, and then you see prices double your Gulfstream quotes.
