Private jet ownership is one of the perks taking a hit due to the slowing economy.

According to The Wall Street Journal’s Wealth Report blog, new September numbers show that private jet owners are putting their planes up for sale, creating more inventory of once hard to find private aircraft.

The story tracks the sales and prices for a popular brand of aircraft: Gulstream’s GIV model. GIVs were tough to find for sale a year ago, now the number of GIV’s for sale has hit a 22 year high.

Private aircraft are also taking longer to sell.What has not decreased are the prices for used aircraft, which remain high. One source in the story says that could change as increasing numbers of aircraft for sale put pressure on sellers to lower prices.
