When looking at how the rich and famous of the world live there are few things which can show their wealth better than a private plane. The following ten planes are from some of the worlds wealthiest individuals.
This is the best single engine prop plane in the world. It is the only pressurized single-engine aircraft made in America, and can carry a pilot and five passengers up to 1500 miles in air-conditioned comfort. It has a top speed of 253MPH. You can pick up a new one for just $869,000.
Super 700 Aerostar
The best twin engine prop plane is the Super 700 Aerostar. This is a fully pressurized aircraft which can comfortablly fit six people for a trip of up to 1200 miles. For only $700,000 this is one of the best private planes for the price available.
Cessna Citation Jet (CJ1 or CJ2)
When it comes to small private jets the Cessna Citation Jets are the best in the world. They are quiet jets which are extremely easy to fly. Most owners are wealthy individuals who also have their own pilots license so they can fly their own jet. A price tag of $4.2 Million for the CJ2 is still fairly affordable for a jet you can call your own. This jet can travel 1600 miles at up to 460 MPH.
When it comes to a heavier private jet the Gulfstream V series is the best there is. Costing over $40 Million, owners will be expecting a lot, and the Gulfstream delivers in every way possible.
