One of the primary advantages of flying XOJET (and flying smart) is the complete control our clients have over aircraft selection. Unlike fractional owners who are locked into one class of aircraft, you as an XOJET client can choose between dozens of modern jets through out Preferred Partner Network—including turboprop, light, mid-size, super mid-size, and heavy jets—specifically tailored to the distance, speed, cabin, and storage space required for your trip.
To help you decide which aircraft is best suited for your missions in 2017, here is our high-level guide to select options available within XOJET’s owned and extended fleet. Welcome aboard.

King Air 350
Range: 2,077 miles
High Cruise Speed: 360 mph
Takeoff Distance: 3,300 feet
Landing Distance: 2,692 feet
Rate of Climb: 2,731 ft/min
Max Operating Altitude: 35,000 feet
Cabin Volume: 416 cubic feet
Cargo Volume: 71 cubic feet
Cabin Highlights: With available seating up to 11, the King Air 350 sets the class standard for comfortable cabins—featuring luxurious seating, noise-dampening ride technology, and luminous natural lighting thanks to large, rounded windows. It’s the cabin you’d expect from a jet aircraft.
What You Need to Know: Though still a turboprop aircraft, the larger King Air 350 is more comparable to light jets than the PC-12. Positioned as such, the 350 offers style, comfort, and small-jet versatility for an operational cost vastly lower than its competitors. A proven classic since its first model in 1974, we recommend it as a more fuel-efficient, economical option for both business commuters and leisure travelers flying short-to-mid-range distances—and those who want a faster, more luxurious aircraft than the PC-12.

There are many reasons to fly private, but one of our favorites is the easy access it offers to destinations that are often considered difficult to reach.
Like Telluride, Colorado.
Set within a glacier-carved box canyon 360 miles from Denver, Telluride gives us everything we want in an alpine destination: dramatic scenery, tremendous skiing with no lift lines, a walkable downtown, and a sprinkling of celebrities, all wrapped up within the rocky peaks of the San Juan Mountains.
Here’s how we spend three perfect days in this winter wonderland.
Today, we are embarking on a private-commercial partnership that breaks new ground for ultra-high-net-worth flyers traveling internationally from leading private jet brand to leading international airline, Etihad Airways.
From flexible flight routes to overall travel convenience, the premise of private aviation is as simple as it is obvious. Now let’s look at some of its lesser-known private flying essentials—all great reminders before your next flight with XOJET.
1. Ten times more airports than commercial.
One reason private jets are seldom delayed is because they have over 5,000 private airports to choose from in the U.S., compared to just 500 for commercial flights. (Plus, private airports and airfields don’t have to account for as many air traffic delays.)
Today, we are thrilled to announce a new partnership with Vail Mountain and Beaver Creek Resort, the luxury collection of Vail Resorts, as the official private aviation partner.
Our best-in-class partnership pertains specifically to Signature Club Guests of Vail and Beaver Creek Resort and XOJET’s Preferred Access™ and Elite Access™ clients. For the former, the partnership will make the getting there an experience in itself—”the jet as a living room,” as Gregg Slow, Executive Vice President of XOJET Sales and Client Services, puts it—and for the latter, it will up the luxury quotient of being there.
Today’s San Francisco Chronicle “Bottom Line” section features a discussion with XOJET CEO Brad Stewart on the state of the business aviation industry and how XOJET—now one of the largest private jet charter companies in the nation—rose above the receding industry since “the Lehman bust” in 2008. Columnist Andrew Ross also got a surprise glimpse of what our clients experience aboard one of our $20 million Citation X private jets at SFO’s Signature Aviation Terminal. Read more on Ross’ discussion with XOJET’s CEO and his shared private jet experience here.

Nestled in the Rocky Mountains at nearly 8,000 feet high, Aspen, Colorado offers year round cultural and natural beauty particularly during ski season. It’s no surprise a favorite spot for XOJET fliers to spend quality time with friends and family celebrating the holidays. However, what makes this destination a true jet-set kind of town isn’t the walk down Main Street or its slopes. In fact, it’s the memorable flying experience into the city, which many believe is half the…

In honor of the 24th Annual International Women in Aviation Conference later this week, the XOJET Blog is re-posting some popular profiles from last year’s series celebrating the great women who work at XOJET. Today’s post is an interview with Amanda Penna, co-pilot on the XOJET Citation X super-mid-size private jet, who was recruited from the same conference in 2011.
XOJET Blog: Amanda, tell us a little bit about you and your role at XOJET.
Amanda: I’m a co-pilot on the XOJET Citation X private jet. XOJET recruited me at the Women in Aviation conference last year, and…
