We are thrilled to celebrate a special milestone, one that represents our focus on people, communities, and those who love aviation. Each day we constantly and fiercely advocate on behalf of our clients by being the trusted advisor and service provider of choice. This is our mantra, our true north, and our guiding principles – and the ability to share our passion with hundreds of thousands of people around the world as the most liked private jet brand across social media is a true honor.
Besides comfort, convenience, and cutting-edge efficiency, flying private opens the gates to a multitude of hard-to-reach destinations.
Below is the crème de la crème of those destinations—not just difficult to reach, but quite literally impossible when flying directly on anything but a private jet or charter. Meaning, if you’re looking for a luxurious destination for your next vacation with XOJET, look no further.

In honor of the 2013 Women in Aviation Conference, the XOJET Blog has been running a series of profiles of some of the great women who work at XOJET. We recently spoke with Nora Jacobsen, who stopped by XOJET’s booth at the 2012 conference and ended up joining us in July 2012—a month after retiring from a 20-year career as a U.S. Navy pilot. She’s now a co-pilot on the XOJET Challenger 300 super-mid-size jet.

As is the case with most innovations, it was the desire to make life easier that inspired former XOJET captain Joe Dickinson to create one of the most comprehensive aviation iPad/iPhone applications on the market: the Aviation Pilot Duty & Performance Calculator.

Aviation was a theme in Brad Stewart’s life even before he was born: His parents met on a charter jet flight—he was a professional hockey player, she was a flight attendant. When Stewart’s father retired from hockey, the family settled first in Cleveland—where Stewart was born on the U.S. bicentennial, July 4, 1976—and then in Eden Prairie, Minnesota, where Stewart grew up.
