Airlines over order at Paris Airshow

The last week was a good one to be a commercial aircraft salesman. Airlines and leasing companies placed options for 1,223 aircraft worth $69 billion at list prices at the Paris Airshow this week. (Obviously many of these aircraft will not be delivered to airlines and no one paid list price, but we should not let that get in the way of a good story).

Airbus and Boeing have sold out production for an astonishing eight to 10 years. Low oil prices are helping airlines make profits and carriers and leasing companies are keen to buy.  Both manufacturers have had three years of record orders. This is a complete contrast to business jet OEMs where backlogs are still falling. Commercial OEMs are upping production whilst we will see less business jets delivered this year rather than next. Bombardier did not announce big orders for the C-Series, but hopefully these are on the way.

Chasing business jets – a guide for business jet spotters

Business jets do not just give pleasure to the people that fly in them. Many people get a buzz just from just seeing a one.

Others take this passion more seriously. There are thousands of amateur aviation photographers (many as good as professionals) and planespotters looking to track down business jets.

Whilst most photographers just collect images, planespotters collect aircraft registrations or manufacturers serial numbers (MSNs) by seeing the aircraft. (You can usually work out the MSN from the aircraft registration, although this is hard in some countries.)

Falcon50_T7DFX at Le Bourget

Aviation photographers are spread throughout the world. With the US and Japan in particular seeming to have many good ones (Japan also deserves credit for encouraging enthusiasts, every airport has at least one viewing platform). Although there are planespotters in every country, it is most popular in the Netherlands, Germany and the UK. No one knows exactly how many planespotters are in each country but there are specialist magazines and books serving the community.

The Monaco 2050 superyacht private-jet set

A step up from offering a helipad and helicopter, the proposed Monaco 2050 superyacht features a detachable private jet that takes off vertically

A superyacht built and decorated to their precise specifications remains an enduringly popular indulgence among the world’s richest, and the unparalleled degree of personalisation they can avail of means their purchases can vary drastically from one another.

Monaco+2050+1 superyacht

Moscow-born Monaco resident Vasily Klyukin, the co-founder of Russia’s Sovcombank, is one entrepreneur seeking to more radically shape the form of future superyachts, by releasing a concept design for the type of vessel he would like to own in the years to come.

His Monaco 2050 proposal (so called because he expects it to set a new industry standard within the next 35 years) considers what billionaires will next desire now that yachts with helipads and helicopters are becoming something of a superyacht standard. In their place Klyukin envisions a boat that will also serve as a launch pad for private jets that can take off vertically.

How Pension Funds, Universities and Endowments Pay for Private Jets

One of the class markers of the private equity industry is that its members routinely fly on private jets. That’s often because the larger and even some of the smaller firms charge their private jet travel to private equity portfolio companies. That means that the cost is borne first and foremost by investors in private equity like public pension funds, private pension funds, universities like Harvard and Yale, and other foundations and endowments.



 

The enormous costs of private jets, while they are borne by the investors, are almost entirely hidden from them. PE firms keep investors in the dark by having the portfolio companies they’ve bought on behalf of their investors pay these jet bills. Amazingly, investors have been fooled by this simple ruse for decades – it’s as if your stockbroker deducts his fee from your account, and you regard his services as free because you never see a bill.

Now admittedly, there are cases, if you are taking a team of people from one not-well-air-serviced location to another, when private jet travel is cheaper than flying commercial. But those instances are rare.

Low oil a boom for private jet business?

As the price of oil continues its bumpy ride, the broadly lower cost per barrel could present a new business opportunity for the world’s largest private jet company.

NetJets, a subsidiary of Berkshire Hathaway which offers fractional ownership and private jet rental, told CNBC that low oil prices – now down around 50 percent from highs last summer — could boost their business.

“If you are an oil company and you’re invested in a fleet of your own private jets, clearly this is the moment where you’ll look back at your investments and your assets and think: ‘Was this the best decision?’,” NetJets’ Head of European Sales Marine Eugene said. “I think this is a tremendous opportunity for us.”

Fly from NYC to London in 3 Hours with a Supersonic Jet

Spike Aerospace’s latest, luxury high-speed jet will be able to fly from NYC to London in just three hours

Spike Aerospace’s latest, luxury high-speed jet will be able to fly from NYC to London in just three hours. The Spike S-512 Supersonic Jet can fly 450 mph faster than any current civilian jet, which means cutting most flight times by half.

However, the supersonic experience comes at a high cost: the finished S-512 will cost between $60 and $80 million. (Which is great if your itinerary goes from “Paris to Dubai for shopping and entertainment and back home in time for dinner,” as the Spike Aerospace update suggested.)

The high-speed jet can hold 18 passengers at a time, and feature a Muliplex Digital cabin. That’s to say: a windowless cabin equipped with a high-definition, full-screen display that can play anything from a live feed of the world outside, movies, to a business presentation your team is thrilled about.

Flying Private, 6 Most Expensive Private Jets, Uber of Private Jets Doomed to Fail

Monday, May 13th, 2019

Finding the Right Fit for Flying Private Jets

Carlos Urrutia’s job is to fly private jets. But when he is on board the Bombardier Challenger 300, which he has flown for tens of thousands of hours, he does much more than that.

He welcomes the passengers on board. He stows their luggage. He offers each passenger a drink before takeoff, anything from water to coffee to a cocktail that he will mix. If someone can’t figure out how to work one of the eight seats that swivel or close the lavatory door, he’ll walk back while his co-pilot takes over and explain how it works.

Mr. Urrutia’s plane will also arrive at the destination faster and with less frustration than any first-class traveler on a commercial airline could dream of. It’s a nice way to travel — if you can afford the $10,000 an hour for the trip.

This is the world of private aviation. But even in that world, there are degrees of convenience, comfort and, to many, excess.

6 Most Expensive Private Jets in the World

Today it’s a flight time in the high class – we bring you the 6 Most Expensive Private Jets in the World. Nowadays, airplanes are common things, with millions of passengers traveling by planes every day. Airplanes provide faster traveling and commodities and allow you to visit the long-distant locations easily. As in every other sphere of life, the exclusivity of private jets is reserved for the wealthy ones. They choose the private option, with jets produced only for this purpose and suited for their needs. Even though many air companies provide exquisite services to the wealthy people, many prefer to travel private in their own jets.

Today, we list the private airplanes of the super-rich people who pay enormous amounts of money to travel with exclusivity and style. Some of the planes on the list are worth as much as big airbuses owned by airline companies. The super-fast planes transport their owners to the corners of the Earth fast, and with style; the luxury of those planes enables the passengers to enjoy their flight in five-star cabins better than in many hotels. Let’s see the 6 most expensive private jets in the world.

Why the ‘Uber of private jets’ is doomed to fail

The “sharing economy” refers to peer-to-peer technology companies that enable people to rent out unused assets, spare rooms, and parked cars. “Sharing” sounds touchier-feelier than “renting” or “brokering”. Its beauty is that the companies doing the enabling don’t own what they sell. Airbnb, the world’s largest lodging company, is valued at $24bn, but owns no hotels; Uber, at $50bn, doesn’t own a single car. Brilliant!

The explosive growth of the sharing economy has been driven by the networking effect of the internet. Now, a gold-rush mentality is at hand. Homestay enables you to rent out your spare room. Hovelstay brings garages and potting sheds into the fold. There are dozens of others. Vrumi turns your spare bedroom into someone else’s office. Where next for “space-recycling”? That luggage box atop your car, those empty rubbish bins … monetise them!

These disruptors are discovering whole strata of consumers who previously couldn’t afford to travel and lodge. Can space-recycling go upmarket? Onefinestay has shown that it can. The Stockholm Syndrome that held travelers captive in outmoded and expensive hotels and taxis is melting in the heat of creative destruction. No doubt Uber and Airbnb will evolve into sinister yet hackable personal databases, but that’s another story.

Is private aviation next for Uberisation? Rise is an American start-up aspiring to add “dead legs” and jet downtime to the sharing bucket list. Monetising idle jets is the Holy Grail, but I confidently predict Rise’s fall. However, Nick Kennedy, Rise’s messianic founder, deserves credit for fusing a subscription model to the sharing model.

Flying on a private jet is getting much cheaper

Several startups are now allowing travelers to book single seats — which is making this a more affordable option.

The appeal of private air travel is hard to ignore: easy-to-reach airports, quiet terminals, no lines or long waits, reliable departure times, a peaceful flight. Traditionally, such privilege came at a steep price. You either had to charter your own aircraft with a broker or invest in a fractional ownership plan.

With the advent of by-the-hour programs like the Marquis Jet Card from NetJets, prices have come down a bit in recent years, though paying $5,000 an hour (or more) for a private plane is still relatively common. But several upstart companies are now allowing travelers to book single seats rather than entire planes—finally making this form of travel relatively affordable for people who don’t count themselves among the mogul and movie-star set.

Private Jets Incredible Interiors, Brazil and Business Aviation, HondaJet at LABACE

Private Jets’ Incredible Interiors

Washington DC-based photographer Nick Gleis has photographed over 800 private jets – ranging from the Lear 20 series to Boeing 747-400s – in a career that has lasted over 30 years. His vast collection of photographs gives a rare insight into the exclusive world and tastes of private jet owners; many of the aircraft photographed by Gleis are owned by royalty and heads of state from countries such as Japan, Saudi Arabia, China, Dubai, and Kazakhstan. Here he shares pictures of some of the most lavish private jets he has photographed and explains what his unusual career entails. www.bizjetphotos.com

Business Aviation’s Impact on Brazil

The Brazilian General Aviation Association (ABAG) hosts the Latin American Business Aviation Conference & Exhibition (LABACE) this week in São Paulo – closing later today. Amid ongoing economic struggles in Brazil, the focus has been on the impact of the economy on business aviation, and the government’s plans to alter aviation laws.

LABACE 2013

This year, 22 companies are featured in the static display at Congonhas International (CGH), and 62 companies featured in the exhibit hall. This is about the same size as last year’s show, mainly due to the ongoing economic crisis in Brazil. The show is still the largest business aviation event in Latin America, representing both Brazilian and foreign companies, manufacturers, and operators.

Representing Brazil

ABAG now has 74 members, all Brazilian, representing almost every segment of general aviation. Ahead of LABACE, the association stressed Brazil’s role in the aviation market. “We aim to reinforce General Aviation’s important role in the growth of Brazil in connecting all regions of the country, being present at more than 3,500 aerodromes,” the association said in a statement.

Economically, 2014 was a difficult year for Brazil, and the aviation sector has felt the effects. There was a surge in private aircraft traffic with the World Cup soccer, with about 1,000 private jets flying in for the event according to CNBC. But once the tournament was over, aviation and tourism activities retracted and didn’t start back up again.

At the same time, the Brazilian currency, the Real, weakened over 2014, reaching its lowest point against the dollar in 10 years, according to the Wall Street Journal. As the purchase of aircraft and parts are made in US dollars, the exchange rate heavily impacted Brazilian companies.
