Harry has millions of dollars and an impressive mansion, but does the superstar own a private jet?
Harry Styles does not own a private jet. He has been on a few private planes before, but has not bought one of his own yet.
Harry’s Private Flights
Harry may not own a private jet, but he still occasionally charters one or joins another celebrity on their personal flight. His band One Direction chartered a luxurious private jet for their Take Me Home Tour in 2013. The private jet cost £3 million to use for their tour.
Harry Still Flies Commercial, to the Delight of his Fans
Although Harry will occasionally hop onto a private jet, he still takes commercial flights like the rest of us. One lucky fan found herself sitting next to Harry for a 10 hours flight from Los Angeles to London.
The fan, Alex Lomas, admitted that she was looking at Harry Styles fanfiction and looking at Instagram photos of the superstar before looking up and seeing him sitting next to her! She said that Harry was very kind and talked to her for a while on the flight.
Harry has Pretended to Sit in the Pilot Seat Before
Harry is not a real pilot nor does he have a jet, but that doesn’t mean he cannot flex his acting skills to play the part. In a 2019 SNL skit he played a bumbling middle-aged pilot alongside Mikey Day.
Harry and Mikey play the roles of inept pilots who say inappropriate things without realizing their microphones are broadcasting the conversation to the plane. Their efforts to sooth passengers only make things worse as they continue to say all the wrong things.
Harry Learned to Fly in Real Life
All jokes aside, Harry Styles actually learned to fly a plane! He took flying lessons in 2016 from pilot Nick Jeffries, the father of his ex-girlfriend Emilie.
Harry dated Emilie in secondary school and the pair went to year 11 school prom together. They remained close and both families kept in touch, even after Harry became a star.
Nick Jeffries owned his plane, so Harry did get a chance to learn the ropes in a private jet. The plane was very small, however, and only had two seats.
Unfortunately, Harry’s flying instructor died in a plane accident not long after teaching the musician to fly. Nick Jeffries’ plane went down in 2016.
The plane crash killed Nick Jeffries and his passenger, Scott Penlington, both residents of Harry’s small hometown of Holmes Chapel, Cheshire, England. Police speculate that the crash was an accident and could have been caused by a medical issue or mechanical failure.
Planes Hold a Special Significance to Harry Styles
During his time in One Direction, Harry would frequently be seen wearing a paper airplane necklace. The item quickly became a signature part of his look that others took notice of.
Harry’s ex-girlfriend Taylor Swift also seemed to have liked the paper airplane necklace. Fans were quick to notice when she started wearing a paper airplane necklace as well.
Taylor later used the paper airplane symbol to talk about the couple’s tumultuous relationship and breakup. Her song “Out of the Woods” contains the lyrics: “Your necklace hanging from my neck… two paper airplanes flying, flying.”
Fans were quick to notice the connection. These lines alone confirmed that the entire song was about her relationship with Harry.
Even without a private jet, Harry has flown around the world and dazzled fans. Airplanes seem to be a signature symbol of his, so maybe he will buy a jet with his millions someday.
