Katie Price is buying her own private jet for 4.5 million pounds or $9 million. The British model reportedly is in the final stages of purchasing a Hawker 900 plane after growing annoyed at the cost of flights to transport her family around the world.
Katie and her singer hubby Peter Andre decided to splash out on the jet after looking at the sky-high figures for their family travel plans this year. The bill for the couple, their three children plus the kids' nannies reportedly came to a staggering 150,000 pounds for the 12-months period.
"She has three round trips planned to Australia. The cost of taking the family abroad this year looked ridiculous," a source has revealed.
And in addition to planning to put her trademark on the jet by painting it pink with matching upholstery, Katie also is said to have been planning to learn how to pilot the plane herself. "When she gets the jet she intends to take flying lessons," the source said further.
And in a bid to cover the costs, Katie and hubby Peter Andre are planning to hire out the plane when they are not using it.
