In the market for a private jet to call your own? When purchasing a private jet, it’s normal to have a lot of questions – but before you start asking, start by providing a few answers.

If you’re not quite sure which type of aircraft you need or want, consider your answer to some of these questions before delving into the buying process.

1. What will your typical mission be like? For business or pleasure?
2. Is the aircraft going to be your personal property? Or business property?
3. On average, how far will you travel?
4. How many people will typically fly with you?
5. Do you expect to use the plane for charter flights to gain revenue?
6. How many hours do you expect to fly annually?
7. How quickly do you need to acquire the aircraft?
8. Do you prefer to buy new or used? Does it make a difference to you?
9. What amenities will you want in the cabin?
10. Will storage for luggage be a concern?
