    How much to just get up in the air and listen to that G6 song a few times?

    I've supplied Lista in two local company hangars. One with Hawkers and the other with G's.

    The Hawkers are used to fly company employees versus commercial flights. Their ROI was the fact they were spending $1MM per month on commercial flight and hotel stays. The Hawkers are around $1600 per hour to operate. The planes are paying for themselves.

    Oh, and the hangar with the G's next door....it's used to fly the CEO wherever he wants to go. Who cares about ROI when you're a baller.

    Edit: We just sold it in December.
    Yikes! Maintenance out of pocket is a tough pill to swallow.
    Slightly smaller machine, but well worth a look in the same class: Lear 60. Great machine for the money right now. Awesome performance, very reasonable TCO.
    There's still nothing like a G though. They are such nice machines through and through.

    Surprising. I thought it would have been a bit more. 300ish per hour.
    Perhaps I'd better revise my earlier statement after looking at them side by side!

    Hawker is a better buy in the long run compared to the G200. (IMO/YMMV)
    Far more efficient machine. G200's are a bit higher on the hourly versus the 800 if I recall. I haven't looked at them side by side in Conklin & Decker, but my money is on the 800 for less burn rate as well other fixed and variable.

    Even with other machines in class that outperform for less up front, the sweet spot is indeed in a Gulfstream.

    The plane is no longer "private" once the registration of record is "Commercial". It was purchase by Fast Air, for Fast Air to be a charter horse in their fleet. Call them and ask if you wish. At least that's what the documentation says and the voice on the other end of the phone says. I may be wrong. Examine the information for yourself and you decide.

    All of this is publicly available information on any registered aircraft. It's pretty hard to say you own an aircraft when you don't. Anyone can google a tail number

    The OP did a fantastic job in posting picks of a very sweet aircraft. He failed to edit the tail number (which he's pulled that image now) which was visible to all. Post 18 has all the data. Again, nothing confidential, all publicly available / searchable information.

    The biggest conundrum was his lack of brevity.
