Private Aviation Can Take You Anywhere: Brad Stewart’s Journey to XOJET

XOJET CEO Brad Stewart

Five years ago, on a visit to his hometown of Eden Prairie, Minnesota, Brad Stewart drove with his wife Brady out to Flying Cloud Airport so she could glimpse an important chapter from her husband’s past.

Stewart was employed during his college years by the Executive Aviation FBO at Flying Cloud, fueling planes and assisting customers, meanwhile taking flying lessons and working toward the pilot’s license he’d eventually earn. The Citation, King Air, and other aircraft he saw fly in and out were inspiring machines serving diverse needs, including air ambulance runs.

“I got the chance to fly on some of those missions,” recalls Stewart, whose career path would take him into business consulting and private-equity positions, experience that helped prep him for his current role as Chairman & CEO of XOJET. “The fleets were impressive to me, and the work they did felt important.”
