As the dream of many, but the reality of few, purchasing private aircraft is a life-changing decision that should be carefully considered before deciding to pull the trigger on your first airplane purchase. With a range of models and styles, finding the right planes for sale can be a challenge.
Hiring a private aircraft broker can help you distinguish what you’re looking for when it comes to buying private aircraft, and give you expert insights into the world of private air travel. However, you’ll want to consider a few things on your own before contacting an aircraft broker or searching for planes for sale:
- Fuel Expenses – The global economy plays a key role in the cost of fuel for your private aircraft. With fluctuating costs, you need to ensure that you’re always economically prepared to fuel your private plane.
- Tax Benefits – Tax deductions are implemented for private aircraft owners. However, recreational travel is not included in these deductions, which can be a catch for private aircraft buyers looking for a plane for leisurely travel.
- Maintenance Costs – As a general rule, aircraft maintenance costs an average of $700,000 – $4,000,000 USD/year. If you’re planning on purchasing an aircraft without regard to maintenance costs, then you should reconsider your budget and/or purchasing a private aircraft altogether.
