I met Joel, years ago, when he first introduced me to Stratos Jet Charters during its start-up phase.  I was always very impressed on their marketing and honesty, as a broker.  Joel is very genuine and caring when it comes to his customers or the operators that he works with.  I know that Stratos Jets will not sacrifice safety for anything.  I know that he likes to treat everyone like they are part of the Stratos Jet family.  The trip planning process, from quote request to trip planning to  invoice, is seamless – they’ve thought of everything and continue to be ahead of the trend in our industry with the way they do things.  They think of everything!  In my opinion, Stratos Jet Charters set the bar for aircraft brokerage and I will always continue to look forward to working with them.
Of course, the cheapest way to fly privately is to have a friend who invites you on their flight. Then there are the semi-private charters like JetSmarter, JetSuiteX and JetClass where you can buy a seat on a scheduled private jet and corporate shuttle flight sharing it with strangers, much like if you were on a commercial airline. You can buy tickets on these flights for under $200 and you do avoid those crowded main airport terminals. However, if you want to have the real deal experience, chartering your own private jet, you are looking at something between $5,000 and up to $20,000 per hour depending on the size of aircraft and routing.
I had the pleasure to work with Joel on a last minute trip needed to transport several professional athletes to an event. Joel was fast-acting and completely professional every step of the way. He sent constant updates to make sure our trip needs were met every step of the way. I would recommend Joel and Stratos to anybody looking to book private jets who also values professionalism and accountability.

Peace of mind!!! My family and I just completed our first charter on a private jet with Stratos. My wife and I have been on a few of our friend’s charters before and I fly regularly on my company's aircraft but this was the first charter of our own. Stratos and specifically Joel Thomas made my wife and I feel that we were in great hands throughout the planning, selection and ultimately flight process. Family loved it!!! Great experience.


Il existe d'autres options pour voyager en jet et payer moins cher (même si cela restera plus onéreux que les vols dernière minute), c'est l'abonnement. C'est avantageux pour ceux qui font beaucoup de trajets. La compagnie SurfAir par exemple sur la côte ouest des États-Unis propose de devenir membre pour 1 750$ par mois. Une fois l'abonnement payé, on peut prendre le jet de façon illimitée. La compagnie vole depuis une douzaines de villes du Nevada et de la Californie. À l'Est des États-Unis on trouve la compagnie Beacon qui propose aussi un abonnement de 1 750$ pour des vols illimités entre New-York et Boston. Quand on regarde le prix, on se rend compte que cela devient avantageux à partir d'environ 4 vols par mois minimum. Au-delà de 4, les vols coûteront en effet moins chers qu'en classe affaires sur une compagnie régulière.
Louer un jet privé selon sa taille, c’est facile avec Private Jet Charter. Les types d’avions, par exemple, petit (léger), moyen, super moyen ou plus lourd, correspondent à leur autonomie et au nombre de passagers qu’ils peuvent emporter. Prenons le cas d’un jet léger, comme un Cessna Citation Jet 2 (CJ2) disposant de 6 places assises, d’une autonomie maximale de 2680km et d’une soute à bagages 2.0954m³. Ce jet est parfait pour un trajet Londres-Paris ou Londres-Genève sans avoir à refaire le plein pour 6 passagers et leurs bagages. Il existe d’autres avions similaires au Cessna Citation Jet 2, par exemple, le Lear 40 ou le Hawker Beechcraft Premier 1.
