Prem Rawat: Top Gun

 

Prem Rawat Top Gun

Rawat's demands for luxury and opulence in all aspects of his life might have been enough to keep his organisations' financial resources insufficient to bring "peace to the world" but the cost of buying, leasing and flying his private executive jets have ensured it. The rationale for any organisation to have an executive jet is that the executives can work or rest while travelling but Rawat flies the plane himself, thereby having no time for work and arrives needing rest. The cost/benefit ratio of cost of planes divided by number of his "students" is extraordinarily high. He was so desperate to learn to fly that began lessons in August 1972 as soon as he had a devotee able to teach him and the necessary funds.

Rawat has created his own blissful Hamster wheel in which he pretends to be an international Ambassador of Peace and Inspirational Speaker and self-help guru and donations from his "students" provide the expenses for him to travel the world in his private jets making speeches to his "students" that provide the inspiration for the donations that provide the expenses …

Prem Rawat Realises He Needs a Canadian-Made Challenger 601 (1990)

On October 4th 1990 an urgent call went out for donations required as Rawat had decided he needed a Canadian-made Challenger 601. This would cost $8 million over the proceeds of selling the Learjet 55. Despite the Lear 55's impeccable performance record over the 630,000 miles flown over the last four years (157,500 miles per year average) it had to go as it took Maharaji seven days to fly from Los Angeles to New Delhi, a trip that took ordinary people in a commercial flight a day. He was so enamoured of flight in his new Challenger he was inspired to write poetry.

Some people are never satisfied and so Prem Rawat has had his plane upgraded a few more times and at staggering cost. The cost of gaining each new non-Indian student must be astronomical though calculating it would be difficult as he seems to be losing as many as he is gaining and not even the Lord of the Universe can divide by zero. These aircraft are not purchased by Prem Rawat but are leased from the actual owners. Purchasing an aircraft to lease apparently has major tax benefits for people wealthy enough to make use of them as the IRS permits the depreciation of aircraft over 6 years.

Gulfstream Aerospace G650 purchased 2013 - cost about $65 million

Gulfstream G650 The G650 seats 18 passengers and has 4 crew members. Fuel costs about $6 per nautical mile so a flight to New York from Los Angeles costs about $13,000 for fuel alone. To an average person there is no significant difference between a G550 and a G650 though the G650 cabin height is 6'5" rather than 6'2" but that would not matter for Prem Rawat. The Priyan Foundation (www.priyan.nl) amusingly registered in Diemen, the Netherlands continues to be the source of funding. In 2013 the G550 was sold to Nike to use as a company plane after it was given a special paint job. Phil Knight, the billionaire philanthropist, co-founder and chairman of Nike, Inc. bought a G650 for his personal use. Knight has a personal fortune of approximately $16 billion and if he hasn't already given a billion dollars to charitable organisations he will have soon. Unlike Prem Rawat he does not have a web site that gives details of all his donations though Prem Rawat does not donate his own money as he is a minor millionaire at best. Other billionaire owners of a G650 include Oprah Winfrey, Bernie Ecclestone, "Lord of the Rings" director Sir Peter Jackson, Stephen Wynn and companies like Walmart, Exxon Mobil.

The Prem Rawat Foundation took delivery of N650PR at Bradley International Airport in New Hampshire on 19th November, 2013


Videos and DVDs produced by his followers nearly always include scenes of Rawat flying whether appropriate or not.
