A Guide to Choosing the Right Jet for Your Mission

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.

Turboprops

Suitable Routes:
Los Angeles > Las Vegas

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.

Five Destinations You Can Only Reach by Private Jet

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.

March Madness: A Game Plan with XOJET

March 15, 2017  |  Events, Ron Kroichick

XOJET March Madness 2017

March Madness resonates with American sports fans because it’s authentic. Just picture the faces of college basketball players if their “bubble team” is selected for the NCAA Tournament – a captivating mix of wonder, exhilaration, and sheer joy.

Then the games begin, and so does the theater.

This year’s journey culminates April 1 and 3 with the Final Four in Glendale, Arizona. But the road to the desert begins in nine scattered cities March 16-19 and advances through four more venues March 23-26.

Along the way, the customary drama will unfold, from epic upsets to improbable, last-second shots. Every tournament matchup carries a distinctive brand of urgency—akin to Game 7 of an NBA playoff series—and XOJET follows suit to offer seamless private charters to every single game from 1 to 67 (see below for a full list of host cities, including recommended airports).

XOJET’S Super Bowl Guide to Houston

January 23, 2017  |  Events, Gary Walther

Here at XOJET we have to hand it to Houston. From Sam to Whitney to Tom (“Houston, we have a problem”), the city has cemented its place in American culture despite sharing the stage with other great performers: Dallas-Ft. Worth, Austin, and New Orleans.

This year it steals the stage as the host of Super Bowl 51, actually the 50th anniversary of the original Super Bowl. The city knows its Super Bowl stuff, having hosted the game in 1974 and 2004.

Whichever team wins, you win by chartering XOJET—which flies you in and out with ease, style, and comfort. Here is your playbook for the days in-between.

XOJET’s Guide to the 2016 World Series

October 24, 2016  |  Events, Gary Walther, Ron Kroichick

Progressive Field in Cleveland, Ohio - World Series

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.

Eight Things You May Not Know About Flying Private

September 8, 2016  |  Private Aviation, Travel Booking and Tips

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.)

XOJET & Bloomberg Take To The Sky (And Not Just Any Airspace)!

April 20, 2016  |  Media

Last week, XOJET President & CEO Brad Stewart took to the sky, treating Bloomberg Correspondent Ramy Inocencio to an unforgettable view of the Manhattan skyline in the busiest airspace. A mere 2,500 feet off the ground (airplanes typically fly at an altitude of 35,000 feet), the two came very close to the Statue of Liberty, Freedom Tower and Times Square, which for Brad, has never happened before in his long career as XOJET’s President & CEO.
