What’s the cost of just keeping one of these? Hangar fees, maintenance etc...?
As they say, “if you have to ask you can’t afford it”
I have not been in the business for 12 years, but we used to use a rule of thumb of $1,000 per operating hour plus crew, plus maintenance, plus other misc items. Of course if you lease the price will vary and the variance in cost between the smallest least costly “private jet” and a Gulfstream will astonish you.
All that said, I thank God that for 30 years there were people willing to pay the price so I could earn a living.
Additionally, my memory isn’t what it used to be so I could be WAY off from the numbers others might have seen. That comes with breathing in way too much jet fuel fumes!
And although Gulfstreams are excellent aircraft and American made, I believe the French have built the most beautiful and well engineered series of aircraft with the Falcon family from Dassault. I love them.
