    ^Well wasn't talking about owning a single engine vs chartering a jet, kinda comparing apples to oranges there! Was talking about owning a g550 vs chartering one. My family used to have a citation x for my fathers' business and when he sold the company he sold the jet to a charter company. The overhead while owning is enormous and it only makes sense if you are flying many days a week or just have so much money you don't care.

    Ack - A Bonanza would be a great pick too.

    I have a good buddy that has one, and they are so much fun to fly. Very fun plane!

    ^would really like the cirrus vision, the whole idea of having a parachute for the plane seems intriguing for me...but yet again, learning to fly might be an obstacle in itself. Always wanted to learn...

    I have two good friends that are going through the process right now and they are having a blast. I have been thinking about starting lessons myself

    Try Bluestar http://bluestarjets.com they have a better price structure then Marquis and the ground time and additional fees are more reasonable IMO. Also look for local corporations that are willing to charter, a lot of these guys are not using them like they use to and if your schedule is a little flexible you can pick up some decent charters without having to buy a whole block of time. Since dead cost is high there really are no "deals" but you make it simi affordable especially when traveling with a group and splitting cost.

    for 6 people from Tulsa to LA was $13,000 (ISH)

    6 people flying first class from Tulsa to LA was about $17,000 but 2 hours shorter time.
