Private Jet on Seven Sharp

Postby Aviator 1 » Tue Jun 26, 2018 6:25 pm

It's not very often I watch seven sharp, I did watch it last night as there was a private Ciataion jet on there. The co presenter was flown from NZAA to NZWN. I must admit I enjoyed getting to see what it was like inside, but some of the stuff which would have been good to know was replaced with joking around and so fourth. But anyway does anyone know who owns it or rents it ? It has a American reg.

I know in some places you purchase tickets on private jets fairly cheap on one-way services. These are rented aircraft, if the aircraft is say in Hamilton and the aircraft needs to get to Queenstown, you can buy tickets
could be about $500usd and have the plane to yourself. The plane has to fly there and it makes no money with empty seats, so it opens the seats up at discounted price. Although I know you can rent out a series of private jets and turboprops in new Zealand, but I don't think at reduced costs.

Found a link commenting the Jet on the aviation blogs,

A pleasant surprise to see this Citation Latitude demonstrator, N985BC into Auckland on Sunday 24th June. A very nice looking corporate jet, it;s for sale if you want to by one...
