    Re: Private Jet

    There are lots of charter jet companies around the world who will provide a ride for a price. But that will be a fairly local question. The cargo will matter greatly too. You can setup a trip using an AN-225 or AN-124 if you like or a B757 or something smaller like a Folker or Cessna. The smaller the plane, the more localized the rental/crew will be, since getting a Cessna from Europe to South Africa doesn't make sense.

    I googled "rent a jet" and found lots of charter companies.

    Sometimes, if you have 7+ people flying, getting a charter flight is the same price as flying 1st class commercial. More people just makes more sense, because the flight doesn't leave until you say in either direction. If you are going multi-stop in the same day, it can be even more efficient, since you'll fly into smaller airports that are in-town.

    At one company where I worked, we had 2 planes that did multiple daily trips between 2 specific locations for employees and contractors. It was determined this was cheaper than paying for the wasted time and mileage of vehicles. They flew out of an airport that was closer for almost everyone than the huge international, commercial, airport here. It was nice to show up 5 minutes before a flight, park for free inside the gate, show the company badge and get on the plane - saving at least 90 minutes each way vs road travel. It made commercial travel a hardship. Nobody patted me down for weapons or took my tiny keychain knife and water bottle away, like happens here on commercial flights. The negative, was no FFQ mileage, no hotel perks, but not being away from home overnight was very nice and their wasn't any reimbursement paperwork.

    I've flown in a lot of government jets.

    I've never landed in one, though.

    Funny.
    Not many people get thrown out jets. Usually it is prop or turbo-prop planes.

    And if you are ejecting, after the 3rd time, they should take your wings way - for having really bad luck.

    BTW, my father flew B-58s, O-1s and another er ... 8-engine model, not made by Avro.

    C-5 Galaxy. I jumped out of a lot of them -- by choice. Never landed in one. The Air Force kept throwing our equipment out the back door and we'd have to jump out and find the biggest pieces.

    I've been in a few of those, but never in the air. AF-brat.

    I don't recall ever seeing a C5, but I heard one landed at Sheppard AFB while I was there and it took out some lights on the runway when it landed. I have been in a few C130's

    I've been in a lot of C-130s. I actually landed in those a couple of times. Scared me silly and I always said I'd rather jump out of them to be safe.

    C-5 Galaxy.
    My father worked on those at the Lockheed plant in Marietta GA back in the '60s.

    Oooh! I forgot about the C-141. That one was actually the smoothest exit.
