With its palatial mansions fronting quiet canals, fleets of stately yachts, and miles of stunning white-sand beach, Ft. Lauderdale has come a long way since its 1970s reputation as a spring break destination.

Today, much of the region’s 23 miles of beach have been designated at Blue Wave Beaches, luxury hotels have sprung up along the shoreline, and elegant restaurants beckon. The city has also become known as the yachting capital of the world, and it’s easy to see why. It’s estimated that more than 50,000 yachts and boats make their home in this South Florida city, where they can easily take advantage of the region’s 300 miles of navigable canals, waterways and, thanks to two wide, deep inlets, Atlantic shoreline.

From November 1st through 5th, all nautical eyes will be on the city as the Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show (FLIBS) returns for its 58th year. Just 13 vessels were on display for the inaugural show in 1959, which was produced entirely by volunteers. This year’s event will feature more than a billion dollars in boats displayed over three million square feet of space, all connected by a land and water-based transportation network. It’s a chance to not only tour vessels that are for sale, but some of the world’s most sought-after charter yachts as well. It’s the largest in-water boat show in the world.

Fly XOJET into the airport of your choice—Ft. Lauderdale International (FLL), Ft. Lauderdale Executive Airport (FXE), Pompano Beach Airport (PMP), or Boca Raton Airport (BCT)—and settle in for a weekend of state-of-the-art superyachts, cutting-edge sports cars, and the city’s most exclusive experiences.

Seven Iconic Runways Accessible by XOJET

While smaller airports are ultimately built for convenience, there’s a certain romance to them that adds to the charm of flying private. Exclusive in nature yet simple by design, all that matters is your flight, your jet, and the seamless access to wherever it is you are headed with XOJET.

“There is a real lost-in-time feel to these small airports,” says Brad Stewart, XOJET’s President and CEO. “In Napa Valley you look down at a narrow runway cut into a hilltop—so simple, and to me truly beautiful. These remote places are part of what makes private aviation special.”

In that spirit, below are some of our favorite runways that epitomize the beauty of private air travel. All are accessible to XOJET clients, whether through our own fleet—often bound for U.S. airports—or larger jets like the Bombardier Global 5000 and Gulfstream G650 within our Preferred Partner Network. Meeting industry-leading safety standards, our long-range partner jets open this list to several international destinations with scenery simply too iconic to overlook.

Comparing Private Aviation Models: On-Demand Charter vs. Fractional Ownership vs. Jet Cards

October 4, 2017  |  Aviation, Private Aviation

After an unprecedented decade of growth and innovation, private aviation is far more accessible today than ever before. Yet for all its modern flexibility, convenience, and choice, flying private still carries a reputation for being too complex and hard to navigate—in particular for first-time private flyers deciding which model best suits their personal travel preferences and daily schedules.

To simplify what isn’t actually such a convoluted process, we have created a comprehensive guide to the three main flight program models travelers should consider when flying private: on-demand charter, fractional ownership, and jet cards. Complete with honest insights about each model’s primary benefits, this should help you identify a program that not only works with your personal schedule, but also makes sense financially.
