Despite the seemingly rosy forecast, figures underline how the industry has now struggled through a decade of tepid recovery

Private jet broker Jetcraft has released new research predicting 11,765 pre-owned transactions over the next five years, equating to $61 billion in value, and 3,444 new deliveries, representing $90.5 billion. By 2023, the total market for used and new deliveries will exceed $30 billion annually. Pre-owned business aircraft transactions are expected to outpace those of new deliveries four to one.

Why private jet ownership is becoming an option for 50 hours per year fliers

Farmingdale, Long Island-based Ventura Air is making a case that you don’t need to fly 400 hours per year to own your own private jet

 

It used to be there was a fairly standard way to look at private aviation solutions. If you were flying under 25 hours per year, an on-demand charter was the way to go. Jet cards were for 25 to 50-hour fliers, while those between 50 hours and 400 hours you were in the red zone for fractional ownership and leasing. Only if you or your company needed over 400 private flight hours per year would full ownership make sense.
