Cristiano Ronaldo, Elon Musk, Jeff Bezos: Inside Their $78 Million Private Jet

When you have more money than a small country’s GDP, what do you splurge on? If you’re Elon Musk, Cristiano Ronaldo, or Jeff Bezos, you go all out on a Gulfstream G650ER. This isn’t just any private jet; it’s the cream of the crop, the top dog, the “I’ve made it” in the aviation world. It’s like the Rolls Royce of the skies, but with a price tag that makes a Rolls look like pocket money.

The Gulfstream G650ER not only boasts the title for the longest and quickest flight in the history of business aviation but also claims over 125 world speed records. Additionally, operating costs are substantial, with fuel alone amounting to $3,662 for every flight hour.

Elon Musk

Elon Musk, the man aiming to colonise Mars, apparently likes to keep it low-key on Earth—no mega-mansions or superyachts. But when it comes to zipping through the stratosphere, he doesn’t mind going full-throttle on the luxe meter. His Gulfstream is where he doesn’t shy away from a bit of luxury.

With a penchant for innovation, Musk’s jet serves as a symbol of his commitment to cutting-edge technology. The Gulfstream G650ER boasts impressive technical specifications, with a range of 7,500 nautical miles and a high-speed cruise capability of Mach 0.90. It flies faster than you can say “SpaceX”. It is powered by two Rolls-Royce BR725 engines, ensuring a travel experience that is as smooth as it is swift.

Cristiano Ronaldo

Cristiano Ronaldo, a name synonymous with football greatness, is no stranger to the finer things in life. As the highest-paid athlete in the world, Ronaldo’s choice of the Gulfstream G650ER speaks volumes about his personal brand—a blend of performance and luxury. For a sports icon with a family of five, the jet’s spacious and customisable cabin ensures that travel is a leisurely affair, regardless of the destination.

Ronaldo used to own the Gulfstream G-200, but he outgrew it. He said it was no longer enough for the family’s needs. It was reported that he sold the G-200 to his fellow football superstar Kylian Mbappé.

Ronaldo’s Gulfstream G650ER is practically a second home, where he chills with his family, stretches out, and enjoys some downtime at 41,000 feet. It’s got room for everyone, and with beds for ten, it’s like a hotel in the heavens.

Jeff Bezos

When building an empire, every minute counts. Jeff Bezos, the mastermind behind Amazon, requires a jet to keep pace with his business empire’s global reach. The Gulfstream G650ER is not just a means of transport; it’s a flying boardroom where deals are made at 51,000 feet. Its long-range cruise speed and high-performance engines ensure Bezos can reach any corner of the world with speed and efficiency.

Bezos’ jet is tailored to serve multiple roles, much like the man himself. It is a sanctuary of solitude, a hub for high-stake negotiations, and a testament to the power of design and engineering—reflective of Bezos’ multifaceted persona and his empire’s vast expanse.

Jeff Bezos also owns a $500 million super yacht, described as one of the biggest sailing yachts in the world.
