5 AMERICAN HOLLYWOOD CELEBRITIES WHO OWN PEIVATE AEROPLANES
Celebrities have a reputation for splurging on ostentatious items, but the truth is that a private plane may be a very useful purchase for them. Take a peek at these American Hollywood celebrities that fly in their own private aircraft if you want to see how the other half lives. Some even possess many…
Although flying alone can be stressful, a private plane enables passengers to do so in comfort and style. Private planes often contain private bedrooms, restaurants, and even conference rooms, and they can be tailored to the owners’ needs.
You might be wondering why these celebrities fly privately when they could, theoretically, get from point A to point B using commercial aircraft much more affordably and quickly. They really have more direct flight options than commercial carriers. They are not required to wait for their luggage or walk through security checkpoints.
Since celebrities are often the focus of irrational admirers, commercial travel is no longer an option for them. With a private jet, they can fly beneath the radar—figuratively speaking, of course—with minimal risk of unauthorised passengers bothering their favourite celebrities.
Without a private jet, it’s unknown how these famous people would get through airport security. Celebrities are permitted to pass through the priority security lines, which are less crowded and offer more room for their bags. They also don’t have to stress about arriving an hour early for check-in or hurrying to get off their planes so they can board on time.
Private aircraft are not always practical, of course. Some celebrities appear to only utilise them when they need to get somewhere quickly and reserve commercial planes for more lengthy journeys.
Celebrities have access to a wide variety of opulent aircraft, whether they utilise them for personal, professional, or both purposes. The celebrities listed below are just a small sample of those that own at least one private jet aircraft; they can cost as little as $2 million or as much as $200 million.
Rappers, golfers, football players, sports teams, pastors, NASCAR drivers, and athletes are among the numerous famous people who use private jets.
1. Tom Cruise: Owns Gulfstream IV
Even though he only purchased his private plane in 1998, its timeless appearance adds to its appeal. Despite having cost him a whopping $36 million, it is still a very dependable and comfortable jet, which is wonderful to know.
Cruise certainly has excellent choice in vehicles since in addition to a private jet, he also owns a vintage P-51 Mustang that appears to have been taken straight from one of his films.
2. Taylor Swift: Owns Dassault Falcon 900 and Falcon 50

Taylor Swift is a busy young woman, let’s face it. She continually writes music and is on the road. She would probably find it difficult to take the regular flights, so why not fly in a private jet? Swift’s main jet, which costs $40 million and has room for up to 12 passengers, provides everyone with a taste of luxury they may not be accustomed to. She also has a boyfriend in her life who lives in England, so she uses this aircraft more than most people realise.
3. Jackie Chan: Owns Embraer Legacy 650 and 500

Jackie Chan owns two Embraer aircraft since he is a tremendous lover of them. He spent a total of $50 million on the two planes, paying $30 million for the Legacy 650 in 2012 and $20 million for the Legacy 500 in 2016.
Chan primarily utilises the Legacy 500 for shorter excursions and the 650 for more longer ones. Both of these jet aircraft are still often used by him.
4. Jim Carrey: Owns Gulfstream V
Jim Carrey is a hugely popular actor who started his start as a comic. Although he purchased a staggering $59 million for the Gulfstream V he owns, his current net worth is estimated to be $150 million. Even if he makes a lot of money, he can still afford this even though it is a steep price to pay.
Carrey permits friends to charter the jet if they so like as long as they have the $8000 per hour asking price, which adds interest to the story.
5. Steven Spielberg: Owns Global Express XRS / Gulfstream G650

Given his estimated net worth of $4 billion, hardly one batted an eye when Steven Spielberg spent $70 million on a private plane. It is a super-luxurious, spacious jet that can accommodate up to 18 passengers and allow them all to fly in comfort and style.
The call sign of the aircraft is N900KS, and it’s rumoured that Spielberg has other private aircraft. He and his wife have a total of seven kids, so maybe he needs the extra room!
