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.

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.

“The goal of XOJET is to give power to the passenger,” says Amit Saini, Consulting Partner for Noodle.ai. “We’re helping them do that by giving power to the XOJET pricing analyst.” He’s referring to a concept called enterprise artificial intelligence, the centerpiece for a groundbreaking new partnership with XOJET.
No matter who wins this year’s World Series, it’s going to be one rollicking party.
Baseball’s annual Fall Classic drips with a distinctive brand of history in 2016. The Chicago Cubs and Cleveland Indians share a common bond, through decades of ineptitude – all forgiven now, because they both stand one step from the mountaintop.
But those long years of losing offer context to this year’s Series, starting October 25th in Cleveland. These are two of the sport’s oldest franchises, dating to 1876 for the Cubs (when they were known as the Chicago White Stockings) and 1901 for the Indians (then the Cleveland Blues). All this history, so little joy – that explains why Chicago and Cleveland are bursting at their seams in excitement.
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.
This month was exciting at XOJET as we rolled out Take Command™ in the marketplace, a new brand campaign and service promise. The new campaign debuted with full-page ads in The Wall Street Journal and The New York Times.
We pride ourselves on offering one of private aviation’s most complete solutions focused on our client’s needs and stringent safety standards. Take Command™, in two words, is an invitation to our clients (and private aviation flyers everywhere!) to expect more from their flying experience: a more seamless experience, more choices, more reliability,…

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…
From The CEO Show to The Hollywood Reporter to MSNBC, private aviation is a hot topic. And it’s not surprising that the jet stream is entering mainstream dialogue considering that this is, in the words of XOJET CEO Bradley Stewart, “A golden age in private aviation.” Today, the fact that there are more planes, more competition and more business models to choose from than ever before has made this a flier’s market. What’s more, now that private aviation companies are differentiating themselves through a variety of service-led offerings, flying privately…
When radio host Robert Reiss invited Bradley Stewart to be his guest for the 300th episode of “The CEO Show”, Stewart, in turn, invited Reiss to conduct their interview on an XOJET Challenger 300 to commemorate the milestone. Dedicated to discussing “exceptional customer service and innovative models”, “The CEO Show” is now broadcast in 40+ markets, boasts 600,000+ weekly listeners, and has expanded into both a print and television version. Credit that success to the fact that Reiss’ interviews are consistently personable, insightful, and provocative, and his conversation with Brad…
