C’est un service qui fonctionne de la même manière que Airbnb, il suffit de s’associer avec des pilotes qui ont des places disponibles dans leurs avions. Les pilotes s’inscrivent au service et, après vérification, ajoutent des détails sur leurs vols planifiés que vous pouvez ainsi réserver. Les pilotes ne font pas de profit, mais c’est un bon moyen pour eux d’obtenir des heures de vol et de réduire leurs frais tout en se livrant à leur passe-temps.
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.
Cette société offre un abonnement de vol à prix fixe comme le modèle Surfair venant d’Amérique. Sur les routes d’un All-you-can-fly, la société d’aviation peut faire voyager le client autant qu’il le voudra pour un montant mensuel fixe de 2550 GBP. Ils connectent souvent des petits aéroports avec des villes d’affaires ensemble avec un jet privé. Il y a déjà plusieurs sociétés en Europe, pour le commencement de Surfair Europe, ont tenté de lancer un modèle similaire. Malheureusement Takeair à Anvers, Belgique et Jetwise à Amsterdam n’ont pas eu de succès. Surfair vol sur Londres, Zurich, Sion et Ibiza avec un Phenom 100. L’affiliation offre, sauf les vols, une quantité d’autres services, parmi lesquelles un service de parking.
Le tarif d’un voyage en avion privé va en refroidir plus d’un avant de sortir sa CB pour la réservation, même en formule low cost. Et si malgré tout vous vous laissez tenter, sachez que les vols les plus populaires en jet privé sont de Paris vers : New York, Los Angeles, Bangkok, Dubai, Ibiza, Marrakech, Nice… Et qu’il n’y a rien de plus chic pour se rendre à Dubai.
Opter pour la location de jet-ski entre particuliers vous donne l’occasion de redécouvrir totalement ce loisir. Tandis que les locations traditionnelles sont généralement très courtes et très onéreuses (environ 30min pour un tarif avoisinant les 100€), louer sur Click & Boat vous permet d’obtenir un rapport qualité-prix nettement plus attractif, mais aussi et surtout de profiter d’un jet-ski une journée entière. Vous aurez, grâce à cela, tout le temps de prendre en main l’engin, de vous amuser avec vos amis, mais aussi de vous déplacer si besoin ou d’aller explorer le plus facilement possible les plus belles criques de votre environ. Si vous souhaitez naviguer et vous déplacer à Marseille, Porto-Vecchio, Arcachon ou Hyères par exemple, le jet-ski est la solution parfaite.
We decided at the last minute to escape from Florida as hurricane Irma was bearing down on us, and Stratos came through for us. Despite our first choice airport running out of fuel, they managed to get some at another and we got out with about 1 hour to spare. It was a hectic time, with everyone else scrambling to escape, but Stratos made the whole experience simple and efficient for us.We will definitely fly with them another time, preferable when we're not all stressed about a hurricane aimed right at us!
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.
First time flying on a private plane. Knowing the exact layout inside & manner of boarding. Originally inquired about a Lear jet 35 & then confirmed a citation ll. Not a problem for me & my husband but for the 102 year old traveling with us was difficult to board as initial step into plane was 18 inches & the crew had to find a step stool. Steps were little and required several people to board & inboard her. The crew of Lance & Meagan were exemplary & would fly with them anytime
Once again: Joel, Sarah and Sandra delivered a seamless experience as well as the pilots and ground crew. There was 5 feet of snow in Steamboat Springs after a blizzard (Hayden Airport) and we took off perfectly and had a very smooth flight despite weather. The jet was beautiful and the awesome pilots tolerated our golden retriever trying to take over the navigation of the plane and two cats meowing. Stratos arranged for transportation home and the driver was so pleasant. Super happy again and will continue to only use them. Thank you again!
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.
I wasn’t able to do the survey that is being done by google as I don’t have a google email and don’t want to set up another email account to be spammed to death.However, if I could have done the survey, I would have given Stratos Jets very high remarks and the reason would be because of the dealings I have with Kerry Hill. As I believe I told you when we met at the S&D last year, Kerry is the best and most considerate person I have ever dealt with from a Charter company. Not only her flight following in which she keeps me posted on everything from beginning to end but also her attention to all the other details for the reservation such as needs of transportation for passengers, insuring that the catering is ordered and delivered. She takes a lot of the weight and stress of my shoulders. If ever I have a question, she is quick to get me the answers I need.In my opinion, she is a very valuable asset to your company.
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.
I have worked with Joel and Stratos Jets for several years and it has always been a pleasure. Most recently they booked a flight from St Petersburg, FL to Sanford, FL to Niagara Falls, NY with us on our Citation CJ1. The experience, as always was flawless and realtime feedback and communication meant the ASAP flight went without a hitch. Thank you Joel and team, I look forward to many more years of business with you.
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.
Eric Bold and Stratos Jets came to the rescue this week whilst I was trying to evacuate friends and families from Puerto Rico during the aftermath of Hurricane Maria. Eric was beyond helpful and always courteous. He was quick to find an aircraft within my budget and stayed in contact with me at every point during our transaction to update me on all matters concerning our trip. I would highly recommend Stratos Jets to anyone and I look forward to working with them on our next trip.
Because jet charter is not priced on a per person or ticket basis, it is not likely that it would be more cost effective for a group of 10-15 individuals to charter a jet compared with flying via scheduled airline service in coach or first class. Even if the total cost for a charter trip is split among 10 people, the cost each person would cover would still be significant.
