The Safety of Flying on Private Jets


How Safe Are Private Jets?

People charter private jets for many different reasons.  Flying on a private jet is a luxurious and convenient way to travel, both for leisure and business. Corporations fly private for security purposes. Celebrities fly charter flights to seek privacy. Even the U.S. government flies them. And one of the most common questions people ask when flying a private jet is, is it safe?


The National Transportation Safety Board’s database claims that “on demand” services, such as charters flights, average 1.27 accidents per 100,000 hours of operation.  That is slightly higher than the commercial airlines’ average of 0.155 crashes per 100,000 hours of operation, but nowhere near the general aviation average of 6.78 accidents per 100,000 hours of operation. It can be difficult to compare these statistics because the general aviation includes everything from personal aircraft, to helicopter flights. But the industry of private jets, generally speaking, is comparable to commercial airlines and overall extremely safe.


Safety is the number one priority for private jets, just as with commercial flying. At Leviate Air Group, every aircraft undergoes a 110+ point inspection before every flight.
