Flying in luxury is probably your wildest dream. But owning a private jet can be your worst nightmare. Here are fifteen reasons why…
They say the sky is the limit. Well, in case of living large and traveling in style, even the sky is limitless. On land, people bought luxurious sports cars like Ferrari, Aston Martin, Mercedes and many others. On water, people built the world’s most expensive sailing boats, yachts, and cruise ships. And up in the sky, buying a private jet completes the luxury puzzle.
However, the question you should ask yourself before getting yourself a new private jet is why. Why do you want to own a private jet? It may seem like the ultimate way to travel, but you have no idea what lies behind the luxury curtain.
I’m not saying it is a bad thing to make your luxury dream come true. If you survive through all fifteen reasons I put in this article and you still want to buy a private jet, then you go for it. But if you have already given up on the first pages, then you know it is not for you.
So, buckle up, fasten your seatbelt, and hold on as we test your luxury dream through a turbulence of reality.
15. It is not meant to sit around
First thing first, let’s dissect your answer to why you want to buy a private jet. Besides the fact you love the privilege of owning this luxury to yourself, do you really need it? The original purpose of buying a vehicle is transportation. So, if you do not transport that often, you do not need to own one.
If you are going to use it just once in a blue moon, your private jet is going to spend most of its time sitting around in the hangar. That is not what it is meant to build. A jet needs to fly.
The simple solution to this would be chartering while you are not using it. But do you really trust other people with it? They may ruin its custom-made leather seats. Or spill things on its luxury rugs and leave stains. And isn’t having that luxury to yourself the reason you want to own a private jet in the first place?
So, unless you travel in some distance for quite often, you don’t really need to own a private jet. There are other ways for you to experience that kind of luxury without having to go through such problems. Keep reading to find out.
