We prefer to finalize our itinerary, plane and crew at least a week in advance. We did not get things completely final until the day of the actual flight. Secondly, we prefer to pay post-flight rather than pre-flight. You were able to make an exception in our case which was appreciated. Lastly, the quality of the catering service from STT was atrocious. It was inedible.
There are two major differences between private charter and scheduled airline service: cost and flexibility. While booking a flight via jet services companies is generally more expensive, they provide a much higher degree of flexibility. With Pentastar Aviation Charter, Inc. your charter will fly on YOUR schedule to the domestic or international destination of YOUR choice. Our service to both major and general aviation airports gives you access to more than ten times as many domestic destinations as scheduled airline service. In addition, we have international experience operating in more than 80 countries.
If the paying customer – that person shelling out $5,000 to $20,000 per hour  - cancels his or her trip, then your empty leg will also be cancelled. If you were going somewhere, make sure your hotel and car rental reservations can be changed without penalty. If you were using an empty leg to get home, make sure you also scan the airline schedules and availability so you have a backup plan. Most empty legs can be cancelled anytime before departure, and reasons can include that delays earlier in the day meant your pilots ran out of time to something on the inbound flight broke and needs to be fixed. Oh, and that’s it. You’ll get a refund of your money, but you’re usually on your own, perhaps sitting in a private jet terminal at an airport with no commercial flights.
Depuis quelques années, une poignée de start-ups perturbent en effet le marché du voyage privé en le rendant plus accessible au voyageur moyen, en utilisant des technologies à portée de tous. Dans la plupart des cas, cela prend la forme d’un partage de vol (se réunir avec d’autres voyageurs et pilotes pour réduire les coûts) ou d’une réservation sur un vol qui voyage à vide pour aller chercher des voyageurs. L’objectif de ces services est de faire se rencontrer des passagers avec des pilotes disposés à optimiser l’occupation de certains vols, et remplir des sièges vides.
Joel was a delight to work with arranging our flight from IRMA. Very professional and accommodating. I would definitely use him and your company again and refer others to you. The flight was fantastic with very nice pilots, James Briggs and Thomas Sommers. We were not the typical passengers as my husband has Alzheimer's and is wheelchair bound. Thanks for everything!!!
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!! Dave
Joel Thomas and his great team at Stratos makes booking a private charter easy. They keep in contact with you from the start right through to after the flight, which gives my travellers a piece of mind. Everything is always exactly planned to our specifications. Stratos really goes above and beyond in their industry - they are simply the best at what they do.
We go through great lengths to make sure your safe journey. We are proud to state that so far passage of our journey has been safe and no mishappening recorded. We ensure all the safety measures while providing you the most deserving private jet services. The ground staff and competent crew members stay alert for your safety and privacy with utmost concern.
Les avions de petite capacité conviennent parfaitement au transport de petits groupes sur de courtes distances. Les groupes en question correspondent souvent à des voyageurs d’affaires, des professionnels prenant des navettes entre leurs bureaux français et leurs filiales européennes par exemple, le transport en avion charter de groupes de passagers ou encore des équipes sportives ou de supporters (football, rugby,…).
Car, pour le businessman, le jet privé reste l’expression d’un luxe qu’il peut difficilement s’offrir en automobile. Autant il est acceptable qu’un chef d’entreprise vole dans un avion valant entre 50 et 70 millions d’euros, autant il est difficile de l’imaginer rouler dans autre chose qu’une Audi A8 ou une Mercedes Classe S quand ses moyens lui permettraient pourtant d’avoir une Rolls-Royce Phantom. Le jet est vu moins comme un signe extérieur de richesse ou de pouvoir que comme un outil de travail rendu indispensable par la mondialisation. Ainsi, Bernard Arnault a été le premier patron français à se rendre à New York pour être reçu personnellement à la Trump Tower, le 9 janvier 2017, par le nouveau président des Etats-Unis. En y allant avec un jet, le P-DG de LVMH a réalisé un gain de temps par rapport à un vol commercial : les horaires sont à la carte et les contrôles plus rapides étant donné le nombre très limité de passagers… On estime ainsi qu’un P-DG qui effectue une trentaine de voyages par an peut gagner l’équivalent d’un mois de travail en optant pour le jet plutôt qu’en empruntant un vol régulier.
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.
In the past, flying on a private jet was reserved for a fairly small class of individuals: royalty or the extraordinarily rich and famous. Today, with the globalization of business and changes in society around the globe, private charters are far more accessible to other luxury business or leisure travelers desiring the tremendous comfort, efficiency, privacy, and exclusivity private jet charters provide.
Stratos offers the best overall value you can get for private air charter PERIOD. I have done tons of research and cost models and there is no better value.Joel and his team do all of the hard work for you. My family tried Wheels Up, local charter companies and App Based Deadhead charter and they were all really disappointing. All of these option look good but when you compare cost per hour, schedule flexibility and booking Stratos is always a better cost and value proposition. The equipment is always great (this trip was a Citation X with a beautiful brand new interior and every feature possible) and Stratos works around your schedule and exact needs. We have made all types of requests due to my young family and the Stratos staff and cabin crews are always so helpful and accommodating. They never have over sold us and always are sensitive to every need.Most importantly Joel only will put us with great operators. We were in and out of Aspen and safety was the number one concern and he always covers all aspects of the trip but safety first. Again, I can’t say enough about the Stratos experience and team.
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.
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.
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.
En 1979, le générique de la série "Pour l’amour du risque" ouvre sur le décollage d’un Gulfstream II, symbole de la réussite de l’homme d’affaires américain. Lancé en 1966, cet avion est le premier jet d’affaires à long rayon d’action : 6.635 kilomètres, ce qui permet d’effectuer d’une traite un vol transatlantique. Avant cela, le jet privé était cantonné aux vols régionaux.
Mr.  is extremely upset and disappointed with Stratos Jets as the plane had mechanical problems on take off which delayed the trip by 5 hours. It was his wife's birthday and the entire family had a full day of sightseeing arranged which had to be cancelled. The trip was very costly and he feels he is due back some compensation. Thank you, Etta G.
The Stratos Jet Charter team provides a seamless & top notch experience from beginning to end. They are a forward thinking company that puts the customer first and never disappoints with any trip or itinerary. I recently booked a short flight from Orlando to Boca Raton on a Falcon 2000EX and could not have been happier with the service and attention to detail that was provided for my wife, myself and the rest of our companions. Would absolutely recommend to anyone!

L'utilisation d'un jet privé génère des frais liés à l'appareil même, calculés en fonction du type et de la taille de l'avion. Ils peuvent donc énormément varier. Un jet de qualité, offrant un plus grand espace à l'intérieur pour les passagers sera plus cher. On retrouve le même système de calcul des prix que lors de la location d'une voiture qui prend en compte :
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.
A last-minute travel to be organized? A journey between friends or with business partners to plan? Excell’ Jets proposes you, all the time, the rent of a private jet piloted by a professional and experimented captain.

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!
I have worked with quite a few different charter companies over the years and Stratos Jets has been the easiest to work with. I always work with Kerry Hill because she very professional, friendly, and is just down right awesome at her job. I often need last minute trips for my boss and she always gets back to me quickly regardless of what time of day it is. I truely feel she goes above and beyond to make sure every aspect of the trip runs smoothly and everyone is happy. I can't say enough about how much stress is taken out of booking these flights because I know Stratos and Kerry have everything I need covered.
Private charter flights offer a range of advantages for busy professionals, including time-efficiency. From quicker check-ins to faster transit times, private jet hire is the perfect way to fulfil multiple meetings in different cities, carry out several site visits in one day or simply have more of an opportunity to remain productive while travelling.

Les avions de petite capacité conviennent parfaitement au transport de petits groupes sur de courtes distances.

Pour la période 2016-2025, le canadien Bombardier prévoit ainsi un marché de 8.300 avions privés dont 2.400 jets long-courriers. Car le jet privé, c’est l’arme absolue du businessman international pressé. L’un des meilleurs exemples est le Français Carlos Ghosn. Comment le super-P-DG de Renault-Nissan-Avtovaz et maintenant Mitsubishi pourrait-il faire sans son Gulfstream G650 ? Toujours entre Paris, Moscou, Tokyo, le Brésil ou les Etats-Unis, il en a fait son bureau et son hôtel volant. Officiellement propriété de la marque japonaise, l’avion est facétieusement immatriculé N155AN (lire "Nissan").
If the paying customer – that person shelling out $5,000 to $20,000 per hour  - cancels his or her trip, then your empty leg will also be cancelled. If you were going somewhere, make sure your hotel and car rental reservations can be changed without penalty. If you were using an empty leg to get home, make sure you also scan the airline schedules and availability so you have a backup plan. Most empty legs can be cancelled anytime before departure, and reasons can include that delays earlier in the day meant your pilots ran out of time to something on the inbound flight broke and needs to be fixed. Oh, and that’s it. You’ll get a refund of your money, but you’re usually on your own, perhaps sitting in a private jet terminal at an airport with no commercial flights.
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.
Les coûts inhérents à la location d'un avion charter se composent de plusieurs éléments. On retrouve à côté du prix du jet privé les charges liées à l'utilisation de l'infrastructure des transports aériens et des aéroports, le salaire de l'équipage ainsi que des frais supplémentaires pour le traiteur et le service de navette ou d'hélicoptère au sol.
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!!
So is there a cheaper way to get that entire private jet to yourself to really impress your friends and family? The answer is yes. It’s called and an empty leg, which is repositioning flight that takes place after the aircraft dropped off its last full paying charter passengers and now has to fly to another airport to pick up its next group, or sometimes for the aircraft and crew to come back to their base after dropping off customers and various combinations.
Voyager en jet privé est pratique et confortable à de nombreux égards : vous pouvez aussi bien choisir votre destination librement et indépendamment des plans de vol que profiter d'un service de qualité et des normes de sécurité les plus élevées au sol comme en vol. Dans le prix de location d'un jet privé, vous retrouvez à côté des coûts liés à l'avion même d'autres frais, comme le carburant, l'utilisation du trafic aérien (taxes aériennes) et le personnel. Voici un aperçu de la composition des prix de nos jets privés.
Si ce prix peut paraître élevé (alors que nous vous promettions de louer pas cher votre jet privé), il ne faut pas oublier que ce tarif serait deux fois moins cher que le tarif moyen horaire des avions d’affaires. Ainsi, si vous effectuez le trajet Paris/Nice par exemple, l’aller/retour vous reviendra à 7 200€, soit 1 800€ par passager si vous êtes 4 passagers à bord. Bon à savoir : Outre WiJet, Blink propose eux aussi des vols en jets privés aux 4 coins de l’Europe.
