At $16,000 per hour I could probably afford 7 minutes, so my only form of luggage will be....a parachute!

I love how the report grabbed the chair during the turbulence. It goes to show private or commercial you can die anywhere.

Shed facial and head hair. Cut the top short, hold shoulders upright, shed 20 pounds, bring a happy wife onboard you are happy with, forget kids if you're working, and relax until 70 years and can afford to relax in New Zealand away from Jewish Killing Desire of your Globe. Got it? $$$ Ever thought of BringIng Birth Control Location Free Billboards Around the Globe? Don't save the planet until we STOP BREEDING.

This is why I didn’t like the news. They try to gate keep all of this stuff when they probably have no experience in the field. If someone truly wants this life style, they will work there hardest to do that.

the title is for the .0001% but she says for ''but then there is the .00001'' too many zeros LOL

Having friends, business associates and colleagues, as well as past and present employers that “own” biz jets (BTW, there are a lot of “ownership”models, from buying a block of time/capacity from a group of jets that fall into a certain size category or range of cost, straight through those that value ease of access, connivence, prestige, security, what have you, that outright acquire their own aircraft), pretty much all of them are purchased through a special-purpose legal entity, so as to remediate/isolate their aircraft ops risk, from their other enterprises and operating assets.... more over, just like their mega-yachts, the aircraft and crews are utilized to the maximum efficiency, via down-time 3rd party charters and/or philanthropic donation of services, to optimize tax avoidance benefits... if there is a combination of services desired, no-doubt there is a firm willing to provide same.... IMHO

Private jets aren't for the 1% in general. A person who makes $200,000 a year is generally viewed as the 1%. All private jets are for the .01%

Only 16k an hour? So affordable
Zane Carmichael (2 months ago)
But it doesn’t buy us time. You have to book a week in advance and charged heavily for last minute booking because of the small fleet. The value proposition is flying in a 60m dollar plane without paying that money. You’d lose the same few million in three years on depreciation so that is what gives the value

Im fairly certain they went out of business. I guess their model was not 'affordable'.

$16,000 an hour for a Global 5000? RIPOFF... Last April I was on a 2013 Gulfstream G550(in NEW CONDITION) which my investment banking client chartered thru a less known charter company for $8,500 per hour heading from Miami to Vancouver Canada. (One way). Then we took the same model and yr jet from Vancouver to Wash Dc for the same price per hr. For 16k an hour Vista jet better supply me with a full platoon of hot women all in line waiting to suck my c#ck for the duration of the whole flight ...

00:47 "... smartest people in the world." No. No. No. No. No. Five times because someone saying such BS for sure won't understand NO said less times. A huge part of that group can really be very good at something that brought them fortune. But don't be condescending: you are saying such lying just to please potential buyers and know that many of your customers can be simply monarchs that explore people and built their great life at the cost of the life of others. Like drug traffickers... Or oil kingpins... And the sickest part is that doing businesses with such people would have no moral issue to the type of seller we see at this video...

John Fisher (4 months ago)
He's a front for some dodgy foreign money laundering scam, a paid ruse to embody a genuine start-up that so closely resembles another service that's well known to even the passing ear. Probably some Azeri middle man under instruction from a government minister to off-set millions in a tax haven free from levies, if not...I'll be welcome to ideas as to why he bothered to splurge billions in his name on a money scheme that wont recoup anything like the expenditure in a month of Sunday's. Get rich by siphoning said monies into your own account elsewhere.

Airplanes canNOT fly, the pilot is using telekinesis to lift the airplanes, airplanes are too heavy and turbines are too heavy, all airplanes are hoaxes

I've never understood this false idea that wealth is related to intelligence. I'm sorry but the two are not synonymous with one another. Look at Trumps dumbest MF on the planet, falls ass backwards into money and has absolutely no idea how it got into his own pocket. Wealthy people are only smart enough to hire others to keep the money coming in. Again look at the orange Umpaloompa n' chief, the man takes credit for paying no taxes ever, when it's his accountants, the crooked SOBs they are whom are the actual brains.

Considering that 1 % of the Earth's population is seventy million people, more people than the population of most countries, yes I can imagine why they could not all fit in that jet. And considering that to qualify for the 1 % you only need about 2644 USD a month to qualify for the top 1 %, I can imagine why most could not afford it either.
