Want to take a ride in some of the fanciest planes around? Just hop aboard one of these celebrity jets and you'll be flying in style. The most famous stars can't afford to travel in coach like the rest of us. For some, even the comforts of first class aren't enough to set them apart. That's why several famous actors, musicians and entrepreneurs own their own planes.
Some of these wealthy celebs own several of their own private jets, and a few famous private jet owners even got pilot's licenses so they could fly their planes by themselves.
Who is the most famous person who owns a private jet? Angelina Jolie tops our list. She owns a Cirrus SR22 and is working toward obtaining her pilot's license. Jolie was inspired to get her license to impress her son Maddox. “Every time Mad sees a plane, he's amazed,' she said. 'If I could actually fly a plane... I'll be like Superman to him.”
"Cheeseburger in Paradise" singer Jimmy Buffett has his pilot's license and owns a Hemisphere Dancer, a restored Grumman Albatross, and a Grumman Goose seaplane. And it's no surprise that billionaire economic expert (and fellow Buffet), Warren Buffett owns a Business jet Gulfstream IV SP.Which of these celebrity private jets would you most like to fly in?
