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.
You will be told how much the hold can take on your chosen aircraft and can upgrade if you feel more space is needed. This will generally be far more than that of a commercial airline. You may also need to upgrade if carrying things like golf clubs and skis. If travelling with a gun, you will need to provide a license and the gun and ammunition must be kept separate. It is then at the captain’s discretion whether it can be on board.
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.
Always enjoy flying privately. Exciting from planning a trip to booking to flight(s). Predominantly use Stratos. Attentive and personal service. Joel Thomas was a great go to person. All subcontractors that they use have been top-notched. Only critique is I obtained better final pricing of the flight when I received quotes from other charter companies. Seems to be an industry thing about competitive pricing in order to obtain the best price. Yes I would recommend Stratos.
We were on a commercial flight from Detroit to Salt Lake City when part way into our flight we got notification from Delta app that our delay was going to cause us to miss our connection. We were on a long weekend for MLK to go skiing in Lake Tahoe. We were going to be rescheduled the following day, thus missing half of our vacation. I had email only, and emailed Garett asking if they had an operator in SLC who could get us to Tahoe that evening. Within 20 minutes he came back with two quotes. By the time we landed he had set up the flight, emailed me the number to the shuttle to get from Delta terminal to the private terminal, and did it all for a great price. To throw things off even more, we were set to fly to Tahoe, but Delta somehow got our bags on the flight to Reno that they said we couldn't make. So at the last minute we changed from Tahoe to Reno for a destination. By the time we took the shuttle to the FBO our flight plan was set and we took off within 10 minutes. It could not have been more seamless. It literally saved our vacation. Time is the most precious resource we have and time with family is even more precious. Our daughter is a senior and this is one of the last trips we'll have with her; it meant a lot, and Stratos savings our vacation, allowing us to create memories, means all that much more. Thank you!!

From pre-trip planning to updates via text message on your way to the airport, Stratos had us covered. We made our way from Emirates @ JFK and the FOB transfer was easy. Joel had already updated Julie (my assistant) before we landed that there were long delays out of JFK due to weather. The transfer to FBO was easy and they were expecting us. The plane was comfortable and modern and the crew could not have been kinder. Thank you guys as always for a great trip. Flight was great and the crew took us right past the storms and my one year old son slept the whole trip; a much needed reprieve for my wife and I.
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.
Chaque avion a son équipage afin d'amener les passagers à destination en toute sécurité. On retrouve donc le salaire du personnel de bord dans le prix d'un jet privé. La majorité des avions requiert la présence de deux pilotes. Seuls quelques modèles, plus petits, ne nécessitent qu'un pilote. En fonction du nombre de passagers et de leurs besoins, il faut rajouter le personnel de cabine. Chaque personne employée reçoit non seulement un salaire, mais également une prise en charge de leurs frais de transport, d'hébergement et de restauration.
Corporate jet customers also benefit from Airbus passion for aviation and non-stop innovation – consistently creating better and more efficient ways to fly. This strive for innovation and efficiency allows Airbus to pass significant savings to its customers in terms of costs. Advanced technology and avionics makes landing possible in even the most challenging conditions, while the cockpit commonality amongst Airbus jetliners not only creates an enjoyable working environment but also facilitates easier transitioning for pilots from one jetliner to the next; helping save time and money when finding and recruiting someone to fly the corporate jet.

Vous serez informé de l’espace disponible dans le compartiment à bagages de l’avion que vous avez choisi. Si vous pensez avoir besoin de plus d’espace, l’option d’un avion de taille supérieure est toujours envisageable. En règle générale, vous disposerez de bien plus d’espace que dans un avion de ligne. Vous pourriez également avoir besoin d’un plus grand compartiment à bagages si vous transportez des clubs de golf ou des skis. Si vous voyagez avec une arme à feu, vous devrez nous fournir votre licence. Votre arme et vos munitions devront être transportées séparément, sachant que le choix d’accepter ou non la présence d’une arme à feu à bord reviendra au pilote.
