New Heights of Photography

Taking off behind our successful “New Musical Heights” competition, XO and our parent company Vista Global are continuing our innovative efforts to support creative individuals who have struggled during the pandemic. Our “New Heights of Photography” competition is open to all those – professionals and hobbyists – who have captured images through the window of an aircraft. It doesn’t matter whether you’ve photographed stunning mountains, ethereal clouds, thriving cities, or expansive farmland. Nor does it matter whether you’re at 30,000 feet or coming in for a landing. We’re looking for graphic composition, stunning lighting, and inspiring scenes of the planet we share.

This is a chance to expose your talent to hundreds of thousands of people. We’ll choose three winners, and their work will be featured in our emails, social media channels,  on our blog, and in other marketing materials. We are also offering each of our winners a complimentary Signature AccessTM Membership for a year. Send your most compelling photographs - to by April 1, 2021. Include a brief biography and a description and what you photographed – and when you took the shot.

Trusted worldwide, XO revolutionizes access to private aviation through our unique membership programs, operational excellence, and cutting-edge technology. Everything we do – such as offering transparent pricing on the XO mobile app, an unparalleled level of service, and fully refundable membership deposits – sets us apart while providing you with an elevated private aviation experience. The XO Experience.

Good luck – and keep shooting for perfection. It’s what motivates us, too.
