For someone who has everything, a private jet is the last and best status symbol. Private plane also conveys a sense of power and influence. That might all be true, but for billionaire Mark Cuban, private jets aren’t a luxury, they are a necessity.
In an interview, Cuban said having a private ride has definitely helped him in so many ways. “It means I have more hours in my day to spend with friends and family. It means I can get more work done. It means I can travel comfortably with my family.”
As you might recall, Cuban bought his $40 million Gulfstream V online that puts him in the Guinness Book of World Records for the largest electronic-commerce transaction ever.
On the other hand, the Dallas Mavericks’ Boeing 757 includes a weight room, oversized seats and a facility for trainers to provide medical treatment. Each player’s locker includes a personal entertainment system.” I came up with the strategic vision for the airplane..I said I wanted room for players taller than seven feet, plus special setups for meetings, coaching resources and video and connectivity resources,” Cuban said.
Asked if he has any plans on upgrading his current airplane, he answered “Yes. We are looking hard at upgrading. “
“It’s part of my life that I can’t be without,” he added.
