Luxury in the Skys: What Aircraft Model do Celebrities Use to Fly?

Luxury vehicles are the perfect way to demonstrate one’s status as a luxury person. For celebrities who are very wealthy, luxury vehicles can be more impressive than a sports car or a yacht.

Aerial aircrafts are the ultimate luxury product! Many people long for the freedom of flying on their own private aircraft. Although it will take some time before we are able to travel in style and achieve the same level of success, celebrities like Madonna and Taylor Swift have already made this dream a reality.

Here are some celebrities from around the globe, as well as the aircraft they fly:

Jay-Z Bombardier Challenger 850

Can American rapper and entrepreneur, songwriter, record producer, and musician get any luck at all? Beyonce is Beyonce’s wife, and he has been successful. He received a $2 Million Bugatti Veyron Grand as a gift on his 41st birthday. His wife was a pro at giving him the best gifts. A Bombardier Challenger 850, a brand-new $40 million jet, was gifted to him on Father’s Day 2012, right after Blue Ivy’s birth.

This particular model of aircraft is one the most amazing. This aircraft is a derivative of the Bombardier CRJ200 airliner. It can accommodate 50 standard-class seats as a corporate Shuttle, but it is often fitted with executive configurations to accommodate 14-16 people (this might be Jay-Z’s Father’s Day gift).

The Bombardier Challenger 850 boasts a striking and elegant interior.

Jay-Z had his real name Shawn Carter on Jay-Zs plane. A result of his dynamic lifestyle, it is also his private, mobile office. He is known to use the time aboard to communicate with his business partners, Roc-A-Fella music or Roc Nation entertainment.

John Travolta’s Private Jet Fleet

The Hollywood Star was born in the entertainment sector and was brought up to love aviation. According to legend, the entertainment and aviation industries combined when he was still young. In fact, he started flying lessons in 1970. He used all his money from acting to just get his license. He earned his pilot’s license when he turned 22. Wow.

Given his age and being a licensed pilot we all know exactly where he will end up. Now, he is the proud owner of his own private fleet that includes a Boeing 707, Bombardier Challenger 601, Boeing 727, three Gulfstream jets, and a Bombardier Challenger 601. He isn’t just a famous celebrity who has the money to buy an airplane. He loves flying. Travolta said that he logs more than 300 hours flying each year during a 2013 interview.

Qantas also recognizes him as an honorary pilot. If you’re wondering about his private runway, and his parking lot, it is there. He and his wife designed the stunning house so they could access their jets from anywhere at any time. They even have a 16-car garage.

It’s an aviation enthusiast’s dream come true. Did I mention he loves collecting models of aircraft as well? That’s incredible!

Jim Carrey’s Gulfstream V

He clearly understands how to live in luxury. It’s not your average helicopter model. He specifically chose the Gulfstream V – one of only 100 or so of the aircraft in service in the world, which is also known as one of the first “ultra-long range” (~6,000-nautical-mile) business aircrafts. The GV cabin has three or four living areas that can seat 18 people.

One of the unique features of this aircraft is the 100% fresh, which allows passengers feel more refreshed even after long flights. Jim Carrey’s Gulfstream V is registered as N162JC. The number 162 refers back to his date-of-birth, January 1962. JC stands for his initials.

This Gulfstream jet was the first choice of a select few owners. They opt for large cabin luxury aviation. Jim, it was a nice choice.

Many celebrities now own luxury and private aircraft models. It is likely that living in luxury only offers one direction and that it is going up. Given their huge, luxurious, and impressive houses, sports cars or yachts, it’s obvious that they require a vehicle to conquer the skies.
