November 16, 2012  |  Events

For some, the ideal tennis destination is the red clay of Roland Garros; for others, it’s the green grass of Wimbledon or a late summer’s night match at the U.S. Open. But for those who prefer something a little more private, the ideal—and most idyllic—tennis destination is Necker Island. This year, Premier Tennis Travel and Necker Island will host the inaugural 2012 Necker Cup from December 9–13 on Sir Richard Branson’s exclusive Virgin Island retreat.

Early on the morning of September 27, one of our beautiful XOJET Challenger 300 private jets arrived at the Barker Hangar in Santa Monica, California, for the VIP Opening Preview of Art Platform-Los Angeles. But we weren’t there to pick up passengers. We were part of the show itself!

Reflections on the 2012 Women in Aviation Conference

March 14, 2012  |  Events

By Cynthia Badiey, XOJET Senior Director of Marketing

When I first heard about XOJET, I thought the company made airplanes. I’d been working in high-tech marketing for almost two decades—before joining XOJET, I was director of marketing communications at a software company—and though I was ready for a change, I didn’t think I wanted to work for an airplane manufacturer.

And then I realized while doing my research that private aviation meant private jets. My first in-person “interview” with my boss was at the launch party for Gentry Wealth magazine. On a…
