Three Reasons Why Everyone Should By A Private Jet
The idea of ditching commercial travel forever is one that more and more people are considering. As the world of modern air transportation changes, the demand for private transportation keeps growing. It seems that the last few years have only served to strengthen that trend. Flight cancellations have become the norm, travel restrictions keep getting stricter, and the overall experience of commercial air travel continues to decline. That’s why more and more people are looking to break into private air travel. If you find yourself fed up with the stressful and restrictive nature of commercial air travel, buying a jet could just be for you. Tom Lelyo, a high performing sales executive and jet expert with International Aircraft Marketing & Sales, believes that more people should look to buy a jet. Here’s why.
This one is a given. I can only imagine the feeling that the Wright brothers had when they first traveled in air. There is something about being able to travel hundreds of thousands of miles in just a few hours. The only thing that makes it better is if you are doing it in your own plane. Whenever you want. The beauty of owning a private jet is that you can travel on your own schedule. “Whether you want to leave early or extend your trip by a few days, it’s not a problem. Your jet will be waiting for you.” This flexibility combined with nearly three times the amount of private airports than commercial airports, the flexibility to leave when you want and land closer to your destination than you would with a commercial flight.
A Better Experience
Let’s be honest. What is there to like about flying commercial? Long lines, below average food, unfamiliar faces, and unreliable departure times. According to a study of 2,300 frequent flyers, nearly 50% said they preferred going to the DMV, and 55% said that travel was more stressful than work. Considering that many of us are traveling to spend time
with loved ones, enjoy a hard-earned vacation, or to experience a new country or culture — this isn’t very encouraging. Owning a private aircraft removes all of that. When you travel private, you can pack your own food or have your flight crew prepare it for you. You can enjoy sitting with your family and friends and even start a friendly conversation with your pilot. “You choose your level of comfort when it comes to health precautions, in-flight foods, and the overall feel in the cabin.”
Live A More Fulfilling Life
Lelyo does not view buying a private jet. Rather, he views it as an investment in your family and your business. “When you buy a jet, you aren’t buying a depreciating asset… you’re investing in quality time for you and your family.” As a father and a husband, he sees the value created in being able to travel on his terms. By avoiding long lines and stressful airports, he is able to invest more time into his family. He applies the same mindset to business. “I’ve had a client tell me that he lost over 10 million dollars in revenue simply because of flight delays and cancellations.” The saying is true. Time is money. Buying a jet allows you to buy back some of that time and spend more time doing what fulfills you.
