It has been reported Bezos’ Gulfstream G650ER jet cost around $65 million. Mark Cuban, meanwhile, owns no fewer than three private jets; in 1999, his $40 million purchase of a Gulfstream V jet put him in the Guinness Book of World Records for the single largest internet transaction.
The costs amount from not only having to buy the plane, which can be estimated between $3 million to upwards of $90 million, depending on the size and customization.
In addition to the price of the jet, the cost of maintenance, fuel, pilot and crew salaries can quickly add up to $1 million or more per year.
The second largest expense is the fuel. Fill up the nearly 50,000-pound tank of a 17-seat Bombardier Global 8000, for example, costs about $53,000.
