The types of private jets include Very Light Jets, Light Jets, Mid-Size Jets, Super Mid-Size Jets, Heavy Business Jets, Ultra-Long Range Jets, and Executive Airliners.

It is noteworthy that although some prominent Nigerians have been pictured and videoed using private jets, some of them chartered the plane.
