Amazon co-founder Jeff Bezos‘s is a man who travels in style. If the high seas are dominated by his $500 million megayacht Koru, the world’s largest sailing yacht, the skies arent far behind. The centibillionaire worth $206 billion owns an impressive fleet of private aircraft worth $149 million. His collection includes three business jets, two Gulfstream G650ERs worth nearly $65 million each, and a $9 million Pilatus PC-24. In addition to owning these long-range business jets, he also owns a helicopter, the Airbus H145, worth $10 million.

His first Gulfstream G650ER, registered as N271DV, was bought in 2015. The jet, outfitted with 22 seats, boasts two Rolls-Royce BR700 turbofan engines. The newer of the two G650ERs, purchased in 2019, is also fitted with 22 seats and has 34 recorded flights in the first half of 2024.

The Abeona yacht is a shadow vessel for the magnificent mothership and the address of the $10 million Airbus helicopter as the mighty Koru does not have a helipad. The amenity was instead provided on the support vessel to save space aboard the 416-footer and not pack it with tenders and toys.

Sanchez was spotted this time last year doing what she does best as she landed the helicopter on her soon-to-be husband’s support vessel, Abeona, after making multiple attempts to land.
