Annual Budget

The total annual budget for flying a Citation V private jet 200 hours per year is approximately $716,141 or $1,122,387 for flying 400 hours per year. The maximum speed of the Citation V is 495 mph, but with slower climb, cruise and descending speeds it is more likely to average 396 mph which would equate to an average cost per mile of approximately $9.04 at 200 hours per year. If you fly 400 hours per year, you can spread the total fixed costs over more flight hours which reduces your cost per mile to $7.09.

These budgets do not include the cost to purchase the jet, depreciation or the cost of capital (interest payments.)
