Private jet ownership is soaring in these African countries [see Chart]


Private jets are spreading their wings in Africa as an increasing number of the uber rich of the continent now prefer their own. Africa's business aviation market is expected to grow significantly. In 2012, there are between 400 and 600 business jets in Africa, say experts.
