How do you build a website like this one https://www.flyjetedge.com/?

I've been seeing a lot of websites like this one https://www.flyjetedge.com/ and was wondering how someone would approach a build like this? I was gonna use plain javascript and jquery but was wondering if someone else would suggest something else? Thank you!

Thank you for everyone's responses! I think I'll tackle it with jQuery

My friend just told me about this tool called builtwith.com that lets you run through a website and see what all was used to build it. I ran this website through, here is the result: https://builtwith.com/?https%3a%2f%2fwww.flyjetedge.com%2f

jQuery came up in the list. I'm betting they're using some jQuery plugins as well.

Without having looked at the code, this (or something similar) is definitely part of it

I say go with jQuery. If you have any code questions about how to go about creating this, let us know. My suggestion is really review whats happing on the site, then try with just jQuery, and if you get stuck, ask questions here, or go with a plugin, but I think it's more rewarding to do it from scratch first.
