Les vols à vide surviennent lorsqu’un jet privé réalise un vol de retour à sa base après avoir effectué son vol jusqu’à la destination prévue : lors de ce retour, l’avion ne contient pas de passagers. Les compagnies vendent souvent ces vols au rabais, mais ils ne sont cependant pas des manières sûres de voyager si vous devez vous rendre quelque part. En effet, la compagnie peut annuler le vol à vide et, dans la plupart des cas, le client devra trouver une alternative de voyage à ses propres frais. Les vols à vide font souvent l’objet de publicité sur les sites internet : il est possible de s’inscrire pour recevoir des alertes, et l’on peut trouver des offres de vols à vide sur Twitter et Instagram.
Joel Thomas: Hi William! Thanks for the opportunity to serve you and your wife. We are always grateful when our clients take the time to offer feedback. We reached out to Chief Pilot of the air carrier you flew with regarding the noise you mentioned and here is what they said: "Frequently you'll hear noises that sound like that and its just the airplane expanding as altitude, temperature and humidity change. Its actually very common." Looking forward to working with you all again soon! All my best
Les sociétés de management d’avions mettent à disposition l’équipage et les équipes opérationnelles pour la préparation des vols. Pour être placé sous un Certificat de Transporteur Aérien, l’avion doit être aux normes EU OPS et de l’EASA (European Aviation Safety Agency) – ces normes fixées par les autorités d’aviation civile ont pour but de garantir la sécurité des vols.
I was frantically looking last minute for a private jet to transport myself and a family member with early onset memory loss from Minneapolis, MN to Keene, NH. I found Stratos Jet Charters online and they caught my eye. From the first phone call to Eric Bold, the broker, to the landing in Keene, NH, I was completely amazed at how easy it was to book the flight and get the details in order. Eric was super sharp and made the entire booking simple and fast in a very professional way. He was also totally available by phone immediately when I needed to talk with him. Sarah, also, helped us with catering and the passenger manifesto and she was just as competent. The pilots, Jeff and Deanna, made us feel very secure and confident about the flight and our comfort. I feel so fortunate to have found this company and will reach out to them for all of my future private jet needs. Thank you, each of you, and thank you, Stratos!!
Stratos takes the complicated process of private air charter and makes it simple. They have helped me through the process and Joel even turned down my offer for purchasing a Pre-paid Jet card because he advised that it would not be a good fit for my home airport and family lifestyle. I shortly became a client after that because that experience was indicative of the company's overall honesty and great ethos.We have Chartered with Joel on multiple occasions and always get the the 3Gs of private air travel - Great Safety, Great Plane & Great Price.Stratos is a great company and they put your safety 1st and make the process easy. You can text or call them at anytime and their response time is amazing. You truly feel special. Flying on chartered planes is something we really value and keep very personal and discrete. Joel assists us in keeping the experience special and within our schedule and budget.I recommend Stratos to friends who have jet cards, fractional ownership and 1st timers alike. If you are considering charter, the 1st call to make is to Stratos. They never pressure you and value the relationship. I can not say enough about this team - A great experience!
Si vous atterrissez avec votre jet privé et souhaitez le reprendre pour le vol du retour, il faudra le garer, ce qui entrainera des frais de stationnement. C'est le même principe que les frais de stationnement d'une voiture : vous payez l'emplacement du jet privé. C'est pourquoi ces frais sont intégrés dans le prix de la location du jet privé lors d'un arrêt entre l'aller et le retour.
Joel and Stratos are amazing! He made sure our flight was tailored perfectly and was very responsive and always available for contact. They catered specifically to our needs with late notice. The pilots were fantastic and patient, especially considering we had three animals and arrived 10 minutes before take-off. They provided the smoothest flight in the Hawker we’ve ever taken. Stratos offered transportation to and from; the boarding process was welcoming and convenient. We will only fly privately with Stratos Jets through Joel and his team. Thank you guys for everything!
The long-range business jet features an enhanced variation of the 850XP’s winglets, increasing hot/high-altitude and cruise performance and range. On the runway in hot/high conditions, the 900XP requires 1,800 feet less runway for a 2,000 nautical mile trip with six passengers. It can complete coast-to-coast trips, Teterboro to Seattle for example.
WE were told to go to First Aviation Services terminal at Teterboro but our plane was at another terminal so we wasted over 45 minutes trying to find our aircraft and our agent was not at all helpful. In fact he told us someone was coming to pick us up and they never came and we had to find someone to help us get to the terminal our plane was located at. The agent asked us for our rental car info but when we landed in Naples the rental car was not at the terminal and we had to find a ride over to the other side of the air field to get our rental car. The flight was great but the handling of the pre and post flight were below normal and not what I am used to when I fly private.
Beginning with the ACJ318, ACJ319, ACJ320 and ACJ321, which feature three times more interior space than traditional high-end business jets, without being significantly larger externally; they set the new standard to which corporate jet customers aspire. Customers benefit not only from unequalled comfort, space and freedom of movement on every trip but also from the technical advantages of Airbus’ state-of-the-art modern aircraft. This successful corporate jet family is also now expanding with two highly-capable new members: the ACJ319neo (new engine option) and ACJ320neo, which provide further enhancements in comfort, range and efficiency.
Depuis le 3 juillet 2014, Air France – en partenariat avec la société Wijet – propose à des clients de « La Première » de voler, de et vers Roissy Charles de Gaulle, en Cessna Citation Mustang – un petit jet d’affaire pouvant transporter 4 à 5 passagers et volant à 630 km/h. Avec plus de 2000 kilomètres d’autonomie, cet avion privé – c’est vous qui fixez vos horaires comme bon vous semble – peut vous permettre de rejoindre plus de 1200 destinations.
Le meilleur du voyage en jet privé, mais qui reste accessible, est un service de réservation de vols à vide comme celui que propose Victor. Les jets sont luxueux (généralement ceux qu’utilisent les chefs d‘État), les destinations peuvent être plus lointaines, mais en contrepartie le coût d’un billet est bien sûr en conséquence du service, donc bien plus onéreux qu’un vol classique. Si, par exemple, avec une dizaine d’amis, vous êtes à Londres et que l’envie subite vous prend de vouloir être le lendemain à Ibiza, il vous en coûtera 19 000 € à partager pour un jet privé Falcon 2000LX. Un luxe, certes, mais connaissez-vous une meilleure manière de vous y rendre ?
Si on s’interroge sur le choix d’un modèle américain quand Dassault en propose un équivalent, le Falcon 8X, 4 millions de dollars moins cher (57,5 millions tout de même), il apparaît que Nissan a racheté d’occasion le jet du boss à Gulfstream après un an; un "véhicule de direction " ou une "occasion en or", en quelque sorte. Car ce genre d’objet est rarement acheté neuf. Le marché de la deuxième ou troisième main est très florissant. Trop même : les avionneurs sont confrontés à des occasions pléthoriques qui freinent le redécollage du marché du neuf. En 2016, le marché de l’occasion récente où opèrent les brokers a représenté environ 700 avions.
We had quite a number of issues booking this trip, which resulted in add'l work and follow up for me. As broker these issues should have been handled / caught prior to making a proposal. I believe I had to sign 4 different revised quote sheets for this trip! Also the final signed sheet stated we would land in LFMD on the return leg. Hence we booked transportation for pick up at LFMD. However flight landed in LFMN. This caused add'l stress and expense for no reason. I have only now seen that the last itinerary link showed an arrival at LFMN - but I never opened this one since all previous ones, including the contract reconfirmation showed LFMD. As for the aircraft itself: it was one of the oldest ones I have ever flown. The door / separation to the toilet / luggage area was broken (not the lock but the entire frame!) and the toilet was not accessible due to a lot of "stuff" (amenities, water bottles, etc.) being thrown in / stored in the area. Overall cleanliness was not superb either. Finally, the catering we requested was not available / not complete. Breakfast (eggwhite and sausage!!) was cold and wet and the fruitplatter had molded grapes; no ice bucket, nor champagne glasses were present. On the return leg, fruitplatter was nice but again no ice bucket nor champagne glasses were present. As a matter of fact, the soft drink container was not even replenished w new ice!! So overall - yes, we flew from A to B but the service experience was disappointing.
Business Executives, celebrities, and heads of states prefer to travel on Private Flights to ensure their privacy and comfort. Private Flights give you the peace of mind that when you are working during your flight no one else is looking at your important information. Conducting private meetings during your Private Flights is as secure and convenient as being in your own boardroom.
When you play the empty leg market, you need to be very flexible and understand that there’s a decent chance your empty leg may not happen or might be moved. If the customer chartering the inbound flight wants to leave a few hours later, your flight will be delayed. On the flip side, your planned departure could be suddenly moved up because Mr. Big wants to leave earlier.
The Executive Car Service setup was a TOTAL disaster and almost ruined my trip. Chris Fink is awesome, but this man in Jersey was an absolute disgrace. Very disappointed with that firm.The crew stellar. Better than outstanding. I was blessed to have them transporting me on thus very important day trip.Chris' follow-up and communication was outstanding. He is Top-Notch.
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.
