Same on return flight except we arrived a good half hour early but crew jumped to task and loaded us and dogs promptly for return. Only item worth mentioning was during climb out to altitude both my wife and I heard numerous bumping sound on both sides of fuselage up and down the sides and top. We have owned our own planes and owned shares in jets through Flight Options and chartered often over the years and we have never had this type of noise. It almost sounded like rivets coming out or random bird strikes (which I knew it was not). I mentioned it to the co-pilot and he told me to report it so maintenance could be sure to check it out. Said it may be a maintenance issue on an older aircraft but a first for me. After attaining altitude the noise did not reoccur. All else went according to schedule and the pilots were very professional and assisted on and off with dogs and luggage. I would use again this service. Thank
Il n’en fut pas toujours ainsi. Pendant longtemps le secteur de l’aviation privée fut considéré comme limité et offrant peu d’options. À la fin du siècle dernier, l’aviation commerciale était celle qui regorgeait de nouvelles idées. Aujourd’hui, le marché des vols domestiques commerciaux aux Etats-Unis est écrasé par quelques poids lourds qui contrôlent plus de 80% du marché ; l’innovation provient maintenant du secteur privé de l’aviation.
Vous pouvez tout aussi bien réserver un aller-retour en jet privé qu'un aller simple. Il est important de signaler que le prix du voyage est élevé si l'avion doit rentrer à vide à son point de départ. Un voyage sans passager entraine encore des frais inhérents à l'utilisation d'un jet privé comme le carburant, l'équipage et les redevances dues aux aéroports et à l'infrastructure des transports aériens. C'est pourquoi un retour à vide reste un investissement, même si vous êtes exonérés des redevances de stationnement, de sureté de passager et des frais supplémentaires.
After your initial enquiry you will be assigned a personal charter expert who will send you a selection of quotes for you to choose from. Each quote will have a clear breakdown of aircrafts and airports and reasons they have been selected for you. Should you wish to go ahead they will then book the aircraft and send you all the flight details including directions to the terminal and any other important information. They will be your first point of call for any further enquiries you may have up to the flight and, if possible, they will meet you at the terminal. From your initial quote you will be able to contact your account manager 24/7 (if on holiday you will be assigned another account manager to cover) so you can call from wherever, whenever you like.
My experience with Stratos has been very good since I started booking jets several years ago. Joel and his team provide excellent service and followup at every stage. We recently had a flight where the incoming plane had a mechanical and they were able to replace it with a comparable one within just a few hours. Our original take off time was only missed by less than a half hour. The Stratos team communicated with us all along the way and everything was fine. The pilots are very good at what they do and the ground organization is thorough and efficient. I would recommend them to a friend.

Depending on who you believe 30-to-50% of all private jet flights are ferry flights. However, that doesn’t mean they are necessarily dirt cheap. Magellan Jets, which sells jet cards and on-demand charter also offers empty legs, and while you have to contact the company for pricing, it says rates start at $3,000 per hour. Airstream Jets enables visitors to its website to download a list of active empty legs and while most of the 13 listings were for the next two weeks, there were flights posted through mid-November, one an empty leg in September on a Gulfstream G-IVSP from New York to London for $49,900. Another broker quoted the same date and route at $92,000. Even more attractive was a G500 charter this weekend from Palermo, Italy to New York for $35,000. Quotes for a non-empty leg charter that I received from another broker for random dates in August started at $111,000.
Résultat : certaines compagnies mettent en vol ses places « à vide » à un prix défiant toute concurrence. Il est même possible de négocier. En effet, les compagnies sont prêtes à tout ou presque pour ne pas perdre trop d’argent. 75% de ristourne n’est pas impossible. Et il n’est pas rare de trouver des billets en jet privé moins cher que des premières..

Quel est le prix pour voler dans ce jet privé ? Vous devrez dépenser 2 400€ l’heure de vol pour un trajet aller/retour (le retour devant être effectué dans les deux jours suivant le départ) ou 4 000€ l’heure de vol pour un aller simple. Ce tarif inclue l’équipage, le téléphone satellite à disposition, le repas, le champagne et les biscuits Pierre Hermé, un des meilleurs pâtissiers du monde. Il faut bien un peu de luxe pour célébrer ça, non ?
Le coût d’une location dépend d’un certain nombre de facteurs. Lorsque vous demandez un devis pour une location de jet privé les éléments suivants feront varier le prix : Le type d’avion, l’endroit où il est garé (par exemple, son hangar attitré) et la distance qui le sépare de votre aéroport de départ, la distance du trajet lui-même, le nombre de passagers, les permis de débarquement, etc. Ces facteurs affectent le coût d’une location de jet privé ainsi que le coût d’une location d’hélicoptère.
