2. Elon Musk’s Private Jets

In a recent interview, Elon Musk admitted to not owning his own home or yacht, but he did admit to owning an aircraft, which he called “convenient.” The 70-million-dollar Gulfstream G650ER was purchased in 2016. However, in 2004, he also purchased a Dassault Falcon 900B.
The G650ER can accommodate 19 passengers and has four separate living areas, which include a master bedroom, a dining room, and two bathrooms.
3. Tom Cruise’s Private Jets

Tom Cruise has made recent headlines with the launch of his second Top Gun movie. No stranger to the world of aviation, Cruise has spent millions in curating a special collection of personal aircraft. As a pilot himself, it’s easy to see why he’s passionate about owning his own personal private jets.
The P-51 Mustang is small and relatively inexpensive at just $4 million compared to other celebrities and private jets, but it’s rumoured that this single-seat, single-engine jet is Cruise’s favourite aircraft.
4. Drake’s Private Jet

In 2019, Drake received a Boeing 767 private jet, which he nicknamed “Air Drake.” A cargo airline based in Canada gifted Drake with the jet, valued at $185 million.
Take a peek inside:

5. Sir Elton John’s Private Jet
Bombardier Global Express
Earlier this year, Sir Elton John ran into some trouble when his private jet was forced to make an emergency landing during a storm. It was reported that his jet was suffering from technical failure, and it took three attempts to safely land his aircraft.
Perhaps, his most notable private jet was the Starship, a leased Boeing 720 airliner. Though he never owned this luxury airliner, it’s easily one of the most iconic aircraft associated with Sir Elton John and his musical legacy.
6. Tiger Woods’ Private Jet
Of all the professional golfers with their own private jets, Tiger Woods is the owner of the most expensive aircraft. His Gulfstream G550 cost him around $60 million. With room for 19 passengers and an eye-popping range of nearly 8,000 miles, his aircraft is as luxurious as it is convenient.
The impressive jet also features a master bedroom, two spacious bathrooms, and a well-appointed dining room.
7. Bill Gates’ Private Jet

The founder of Microsoft’s most expensive private jet is one of the Gulfstream G650s, which come in around $70 million. The Bombardier Global Expresses are worth closer to $40 million.

8. Oprah Winfrey’s Private Jet
The American talk show host Oprah Winfrey is worth an estimated $3.5 billion, making her one of the wealthiest women in the world. It comes as no surprise that she owns her own private jet, a Gulfstream G650 worth $75 million.
Oprah’s well-appointed aircraft can accommodate up to 18 passengers, has an extremely spacious cabin, and can reach a top speed of 610 miles per hour.
9. Beyonce and Jay-Z’s Private Jet

This power couple is well-known around the globe for their musical talents. For his first Father’s Day, Jay-Z was gifted with a Challenger 850 by wife Beyonce. This $40-million aircraft has been fully customized and tailored to keep up with the lavish lifestyle these two enjoy.

The spacious cream-colored cabin was designed with the entire family in mind, however, and boasts room for 19 passengers, a kitchen, a master bedroom, two bathrooms and a cozy living room. The aircraft has even been personally monogramed with S. Carter written in red along the exterior fuselage.
10. Jeff Bezos’ Private Jet
A Gulfstream G-650ER
Recently knocked off the top spot of world’s richest man, the founder of Amazon is still doing extremely well with his Gulfstream G-650ER private jet. The aircraft set him back about $65 million. This aircraft is one of the most popular among celebrities with private jets due to its spacious interiors and impressive features.
The G-650ER is capable of accommodating up to 19 passengers, is powered by two Rolls-Royce engines, clocks in a top speed of nearly 690 miles per hour and holds over 110 world speed records.
The creator of Blue Origin, however, may find himself enjoying rides in a spaceship instead of a private jet should his vision of enabling a future where millions of people are living and working in space come to fruition.
