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.
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!
Everyone involved was courteous and helpful in getting a last minute emergency trip arranged. However, the premise for using your services was to be GUARANTEED ARRIVAL by a SPECIFIC TIME. Neither the departure nor arrival was anywhere close to what was promised. Hence, our reasons for hiring Stratos to take us became unnecessary and a wasted expense
At Pentastar Aviation, we focus first and foremost on passenger safety. There are no age restrictions for passengers on private jets. Just let us know if you are traveling with a child, and we’ll be sure the aircraft selected for your trip will accommodate your family’s needs. Please note, however, neither PACI nor Pentastar Aviation will transport unaccompanied minors under the age of 18. Domestic pets are allowed on some aircraft. Make sure to let your charter sales representative know if you will be traveling with a pet so we can accommodate your request. Please note that exotic animals may not be allowed, especially on international flights.
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

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.
Using a private jet rental to get to a holiday destination ensures the additional benefit of access to private terminals for faster security check-ins, ensuring that more time is spent enjoying the getaway instead of waiting in line. With its ability to access more locations around the world and enhanced potential for personalisation, chartering privately is the perfect way to travel for pleasure.
Le plus gros avantage dans l’affrètement d’un jet privé, c’est la personnalisation du vol. De plus, les jets privés offrent des sièges plus confortables, qui permettent de manger et de dormir agréablement. Les clients disposent aussi de la télévision, du Wi-Fi et d’un accès à internet. Les agents de bord sont également présents pour servir de délicieux repas, selon vos recommandations, et pour répondre à vos besoins pendant la durée de vol.
Everything worked out great. Working with Stratos was seamless. When the Trump TFR foiled our plans on both the outbound and inbound legs, Stratos was proactive in finding the best solution for us and minimized the disruption to the timing of our itinerary while also remaining flexible to our schedule as well. Joel could not have been easier to work with, finding us the best options at the best prices.

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.
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.
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.
Cinquante ans plus tard, l’aviation d’affaires atteint des sommets avec des jets toujours plus luxueux et performants, mais plafonne en terme de ventes. Depuis le record de 2008 et les 1.306 unités vendues tous avionneurs confondus, le secteur traverse des turbulences. Selon la Gama (General Aviation Manufacturers Association), en 2015, les ventes mondiales de jets privés sont redescendues à 718 unités, générant tout de même un chiffre d’affaires d’environ 22 milliards de dollars. Et les avionneurs sont optimistes : la période de renouvellement des flottes approche, et elle sera même accélérée avec le lancement de nouveaux modèles.
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.
_ du port Saint-Aygulf vers Cavalaire en passant par Les Issambres (Roquebrune sur Argens), la baie de Sainte-Maxime, le Golfe de Saint-Tropez, au large de Port-Grimaud et port Cogolin, les plages de Ramatuelle, Cap Camarat, baignade pour se rafraîchir dans les eaux Turquoises du Cap Taillat . Lieux célèbres et sites défilent sous vos yeux et le plaisir de piloter votre jetski vous ravira.

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.
Les vols à bas prix ont ouvert le monde aux routards, aux hommes d’affaires et aux familles. Mais à mesure que se développent nos goûts pour des destinations plus exotiques, nous avons aussi commencé à accepter de plus en plus de choses finalement très peu confortables : attendre des heures un vol, avoir d‘énormes files d’attente pour passer la sécurité, se presser dans des avions dont les sièges semblent diminuer de taille et de largeur à chaque fois. Rêver à 30 000 pieds que vous voyagez sans ces contraintes en jet privé devient alors fréquent et légitime. La bonne nouvelle est que ce rêve se rapprochent désormais de la réalité.
