Business jet sales are climbing.
In fact, they've more than doubled since 1995. The sector's growth is just one indication of how corporations are riding the successes of the high-flying economy.
If you want your own business jet, Bombardier Inc., a leading manufacturer of business jets, charges $10 million for its medium-sized Learjet 60. And it costs another $1 million or so a year to keep the plane running. Companies that can't afford that price can pay a mere $1.4 million for 100 hours of flying time and share the plane with other companies.
