Private jets go hand in hand with famous people – whether successful businessmen, daytime TV hosts, athletes or movie stars.
We’ve put together a list of the 10 celebrities who own private jets, including Kim Kardashian and Kanye West, Lionel Messi, Harrison Ford, Michael Jordan and JayZ.
Celebrities tend to buy larger cabin jets that are capable of flying longer routes nonstop, such as Bombardier Global or large-cabin Gulfstreams. But they also buy bizliners – commercial aircraft that are converted into private jets (just in case you needed even more space in the cabin).

My name is Anastasia, and I am your private jet insider. As usual, the information and analysis are provided by TapJets with their amazing on-line private jet platform and data analytics for fliers, brokers, and operators. Let’s get started. __________________________________________________________________ Dear Jet setters, The beauty of on-demand jet travel is in the ability to pick just the right jet for the mission that you are trying to accomplish. Light jets for example can get into smaller airports and are a great way to get from point A to point B while Heavy Jets work as great client entertainment platforms. So, what is the right jet for your mission? On-Demand Private Jets are broken down into categories. Categories include Turboprops, Light Jets, Midsize Jets, and Heavy Jet category. To make it more interesting, aircraft marketing folks have added a couple more categories such as VLJ (or Very Light Jet), Super Light, Super Mid, and Extended Long Range. Each of the categories has 3-4 aircraft options from several aircraft manufacturers. So, picking the right aircraft becomes an interesting exercise. Here are my suggestions on how to pick the right plane: If you are traveling with less than five people and your flight covers no more than a quarter of the USA territory, a light jet may be the right option for you. It is designed to get you from point A to Point B with flights of about 2.5 hours. So, you can be landing at the nearest airport to your business meeting and head back home the same day. They typically will not have amenities such as the internet, and their lavatories may be limited. I will leave a link for the lavatories video in the description below. Think of this option as your “I need to get there for a meeting” plane. Now, if you are bringing a team of 5 to 8 people, and you like to work on the way to a client, or maybe you want to have a dinner while on board of the aircraft, you should consider a Mid-Size Jet. In most cases, they are equipped with Wi-Fi, a nice galley, and an entertainment system for you to enjoy while being in the air for 3+ hours. This is a great option for family travel, skiing trips, and a platform where you can get things done while in the air. It is also an entry-level platform for client entertainment. Enjoy a catered meal on board, but don’t plan on ordering ice cream or a full course meal. There are not enough galley capabilities to make this an entertainment platform. Last but not least, Mid-Size Jets can cover one half of the US continent and are designed to stay in the air for up to 5 hours. Now, if you are trying to cross the country coast to coast, which puts you in the aircraft for 5+ hours, you may want to opt-in for a Heavy Jet. With galleys designed for meal preparations, wider and taller cabin and seats that convert to beds, these are the ultimate machines of the private jet fleet. With seating capacities of up to 14 people, they make great client and friend entertainment platforms. Enjoy Wi-Fi, personal spaces, full-size beds, and on board, prepared meals. Your flight across the continent will be beyond the first-class experience and in most cases, will include a personal flight attendant for the trip.
