5 Celebrity-Owned Private Jets

5 Celebrity-Owned Private Jets

The lavish lifestyle of many celebrities includes the ability to fly anywhere at a moment’s notice in absolute extravagance. Here, we peer into the lives of a handful of celebrities and their private jets. 

Elvis Presley

In 1975, the King of Rock n’ Roll acquired a Convair 880 he dubbed the ‘Lisa Marie’, refurbishing it and re-designing its interior to become the essence of airborne luxury. It boasted sleeping quarters – including a master bedroom with queen size bed, and executive bathroom with solid gold fixtures – a conference room with four televisions and an audio system with 52 speakers. 

Jim Carrey

Jim Carrey owns a Gulfstream V, one of the highest-performing and most safety-intensive private jets in existence. It accommodates up to 16 passengers and flies near the speed of sound. Talon Air owns and operates one Gulfstream V heavy jet. 

Tom Cruise

The Top Gun star owns a Gulfstream IV that has room for 19 passengers, plus 2 crew members. Its maximum range is 7,820 km and can reach an altitude of 45,000 ft. It can approach speeds of Mach 0.80 and is powered by two Rolls-Royce Tay engines. Talon Air is the proud owner of three Gulfstream IV heavy jet variants. 

Harrison Ford

Actor Harrison Ford is a renowned pilot who is also known for his conservation efforts, and, surprisingly, rescuing a stranded hiker from certain death just a few years ago. Mr. Ford owns a Cessna 525B CJ3 Citations Jet that has a maximum service ceiling of 45,000 feet, maximum speed of 481 mph and a maximum range of 1,875 nautical miles. Talon Air owns one Cessna Caravan turbo prop plane.
