Data about hundreds of jets, turboprops and helicopters.

As soon as its first owner departs from the manufacturer’s delivery center, a new airplane technically becomes used (or preowned). For various reasons, however, 10 years after an aircraft’s final production date is generally considered the ­milestone separating “newer” used business aircraft from “older” ones. 

In deciding which ­aircraft to cover, we went well past this 10-year mark to ­provide ­information on all business airplanes and helicopters manufactured since 1997. This means our list includes some models manufactured before that year, as long as they were still being produced as recently as 1997. As a rule, a long production run is indicative of a successful aircraft. 
 
We have not listed new models that, at press time, had yet to receive final certification.

“I guess an airplane is pretty decadent, right? But if anyone has a problem with that, tell them to go f--k themselves, because I will live in that trailer [I own] in Alabama before I give up that f--kin’ airplane. That airplane is, hands down, the greatest luxury a human being could have. There’s nothing that f--king beats it. F--k a yacht. ”

-musician Kid Rock, when asked to name his most decadent purchase
