This is the $65 million private jet the richest people in the world own

It’s a luxury only the wealthiest in the world can afford, the private jet.

But there’s one in particular that’s a firm favorite: the $65 million Gulfstream G650 (or the G650ER for the extended range).

Owners of the coveted aircraft include Jeff Bezos, Elon Musk, Cristiano Ronaldo and Laurene Powell Jobs.

And it’s not hard to see why.

Powered by two Rolls-Royce BR725 engines, it has a high-speed cruise of Mach 0.90 (690 mph) and 7000 nautical miles.

Depending on specs, the G650 can have up to four areas that accommodate up to 19 passengers and sleeps up to 10.

The jet also boasts sixteen panoramic oval windows from which its passengers can enjoy the views during their flights.

How big is it?

  • It has an overall wingspan of 99 feet and seven inches
  • The roomy cabin measures six foot three inches in height, eight foot two inches in width and 46 feet 10 inches in length

Who owns a G650 private jet?

The world’s richest person, Musk, claims his private jet helps him fit more work hours in the day by cutting down travel time.

His real-time net worth, according to Forbes, is currently $246.2 billion.

The G650 is one of two private jets owned by football legend Cristiano Ronaldo, according to The Sun.

The other is reportedly a Gulfstream G200, which is worth $25 million.

He may not be a billionaire, but Ronaldo was the world’s third-highest paid athlete last year. His total earnings were $120 million, according to Forbes.

Amazon founder Bezos’s version of the G650 seats eight people, Business Insider reported.

The billionaire is the second richest person in the world (his real-time net worth is $170.4 billion as I’m writing).

And Powell Jobs, the widow of the late Steve Jobs, also owns one along with a Gulfstream GV, which was worth almost $10 million in 2016, according to Daily Mail.

Her real-time net worth at the time of writing was $16.6 billion.
