What's the target market for private jet charter?

Are most of the people who use jet charter services big, rich company CEOs that go to conferences, or famous celebrities going to concerts, or sports teams traveling to games? I was looking into the air charter business but I can't exactly identify what type of people are targeted. Also, would it be reasonable for a "normal" person (in my opinion, one that makes less than 6 figures) to charter a jet?
