Aircraft Financing with Stratos Jet Charters

At any given time, there are thousands of aircraft listed on the market, and sometimes it makes more sense to buy a jet instead of booking charter flights. However, aircraft ownership is a complex and costly venture. Besides securing financing, there are other things to think about, like:

  • Aircraft Maintenance
  • Aviation Insurance
  • Crew and Hangar Fees

The Cost of Ownership

Once you’ve decided to purchase a new or new-to-you aircraft, you’ll want to secure the best aircraft financing rates available. When talking about financing, you’ll need to consider all three aspects of owning a jet: the cost of acquisition, annual fixed costs, and variable costs.

The Acquisition Cost

The acquisition cost is the sticker price of the jet plus any additional services required to secure the aircraft.

Annual Fixed Costs

The costs associated with this category include hangar and crew fees, insurance, aircraft management fees, and more.

Variable Cost

Variable costs typically refer to expenses associated with the operation of the jet, like fuel, maintenance, inspections, landing fees, etc. They’re typically added up and calculated per hour.

Discovering the Right Lending Agent

When purchasing an aircraft, connecting with the right lending agency is the first step. From evaluating your financing needs to presenting various options and structures to prompt closing and funding, the right aircraft financing company will broker a smooth and simple transaction.

If you’re in the market to purchase a new aircraft, we can help. We’ve developed extensive professional relationships with many leaders in the aviation industry, and we’d be happy to connect you with the right lending agency.

Simon Crhistian did a great job.

5 1 5 12/21/2021

We had a large family gathering in Santa Barbara to which Frank with Stratos was able to arrange the flight. The plane and pilots were fantastic as was the service leading up to and throughout. I would recommend them to anyone that needs private travel arrangements.

5 1 5 12/15/2020

The trip was excellent, the aircraft new, clean and confortable. The staff really did the best to make the best possible experience. Will definitely fly again with you

very pro active, quick to get information and respond to requests, fast wire payment. I wish ALL brokers were this good. Great job team. Joel, you have put together a great group. It was nice working with you, it's been a long time.

5 1 5 02/20/2013

Both the pilots were exceptional, professional, and very thoughtful. My father has limited mobility, and alzheimers , so the assistance from the crew was appreciated by all. Wonderful experience, i would do this again.

5 1 5 05/16/2023

I had a great time with the pilots, all of us looking at our route software on our iPads how to get around the rain and stay clear of all the boomers on the way to the field. They did a great job. Fabulous approach to Runway 21 direct. I would fly with these pilots any time anywhere.

5 1 5 12/17/2016

Our VP's had a wonderful trip and great experience. Your staff is professional, welcoming, easy to work with and I look forward to working with them again. Thank you!

5 1 5 04/30/2018

5 1 5 08/12/2020

Let me just add K___ and my thanks for a perfect flight.  Great crew, great plane and and wonderful flight. Doesn't get any better.

5 1 5 06/22/2017

Always a pleasure to work with the Stratos Jet crew. You all have great communication with us which makes our life as an operator easier. Great job from Kerry, Sarah, and Trip Support as always.

5 1 5 04/14/2020

Everything was done in super fashion. Anthony the scheduler, Anthony and Terry the pilots were fantastic!

5 1 5 12/19/2023

Great equipment, a competent/courteous crew and a smooth flight make for a terrific trip!!

5 1 5 04/13/2017

None. My experience with Strosjets honestly couldn't have been better

5 1 5 06/12/2017

Everything went perfect. great job. Yes I would recommend your company to my friends.

5 1 5 04/27/2021

Booking was great, Kyle is wonderful a asset to your company. However the pilots were not. They were not there on time never offered an apology or explained as to why. When questioned they were extremely RUDE. I was told that the Pilots went to eat lunch so they kept myself and family waiting over an hour past wheels up time. I arrived at 12:30 for a 1:00 flight they arrived at 1:30 for a 1:00 flight with BAD attitudes

5 1 5 07/28/2021

Randy was great. He helped with every aspect of the trip including time changes and catering. Both crews we had were great as well. Explaining, loading and unloading baggage, considerate and very polite. I would definitely use your service again.

5 1 5 03/23/2020

Kyle from Stratos Jet was great to deal with... quick responses....great service....great prices....A+ experience

5 1 5 03/26/2020

Anthony went above and beyond to make certain that our trip to the Bahamas went off without a hitch. The team coordinated everything including ground transportation. Anthony stayed in contact each leg of the trip to make certain that we had everything we needed. I highly recommend Stratos Jet and will certainly use them again in the future.

5 1 5 01/08/2023

Working with Kerry Hill and Joel A. Thomas from Stratos is always a pleasure for us at Regency. There is clear communication from start to finish. Client expectations are laid out, so that we can work our best to execute them. They communicate with us in a timely manner, and of course expect the same from us. Their clients are respectful of our jets and our crews. We definitely enjoy partnering and are looking forward to many more come 2023!

5 1 5 04/19/2017

Top notch customer service from the initial contact through the end of trip, incredibly quick turn-around-time for a quote, very detail oriented itinerary. I highly recommend Stratos for any of your charter needs!

5 1 5 12/20/2019

Enjoyed flight; booking easy; would gladly recommend Stratos

5 1 5 11/26/2016

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.

5 1 5 12/28/2013

None that I can think of.  Great flight

5 1 5 04/14/2019

They were the only ones able to book our last minute flight to the Masters. We decided to go Saturday night and they made it happen Including arranging ground transport and picking up our tickets for us. Thank You!!

5 1 5 01/08/2023

My agent was wonderful. However, my scheduled flight time was changed due to the owner wanting to use their plane. This change resulted in my missing an engagement. No discount was given to me for my inconvenience. The lack of observance of a signed contract was shocking and frankly showed a lack of integrity. I expect monetary compensation.

5 1 5 05/04/2023

Excellent

5 1 5 11/01/2021

The experience from start to finish was excellent. I would highly recommend Stratos.

5 1 5 07/13/2021

Everything from booking to flying to ground transport was taken care of. Stratos made our golf trip amazing!

5 1 5 10/04/2013

Chris was SUPERIOR - great customer service on his behalf. Most certainly will contact him directly for next charter flight. Thank you.

5 1 5 08/07/2015

Mr. <name removed for confidentiality> 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.

5 1 5 07/31/2023

I love Kerry and the Stratos team. Easy to work with from top to bottom. Even on a Sunday!

5 1 5 07/31/2023

Ditto!

5 1 5 10/04/2014

the flight and service was great.

5 1 5 11/26/2016

Its always a pleasure to work with Mark and Stratos!

5 1 5 10/10/2020

Glenn like usual is great to work with and is always on top of it.

5 1 5 07/31/2023

Perfect experience!!!!! The flight was on time, the pilots were great, and Booking with Kyle was easy and exceptional! Stratos is the very BEST option for flying private.

5 1 5 04/03/2018

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.

5 1 5 01/19/2017

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

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

5 1 5 03/30/2022

As always, we enjoy working with you all. We all strive to accommodate the clients needs as best as possible, on our end and your end. Looking forward to many more trips with you all in the future.

5 1 5 11/03/2016

I booked a flight for my good clients and amazing service from pre departure to arrival. Friendly staff and always easy to reach. My clients left sunglasses in the plane and they are already on their way. I will use you for sure again. Thanks again.

5 1 5 03/31/2019

Glenn,
The trips, one to Iowa & the other back to Dulles, went great. 
Everyone did great jobs & made me & my 94 year old Mom feel comfortable & taken care of. 
Glenn & Rachel were especially helpful. 
I would use your service again and will let Glenn know about my next trip. 
Thanks to you, Glenn, Rachel and the very nice/competent pilots.  Ground staff were great too. 
Thank you.

5 1 5 06/21/2021

Fantastic experience as always with Stratos! Joel and his team found us a great flight with a brand new airplane that accommodated all of our family and our schedule. The value can’t be over stated Joel always places us with the right equipment for the right trip

The passengers we flew had a great experience and were pleased with the flight. Jim Hensley American Jet Charter, Inc

We had a great flight. I greatly appreciated Zach calling to let me know the address of the gate had changed. I did get an email with the update but it didn't show up in my inbox til I was driving to the airport. We had a great flight with no issues. The crew were very helpful when and if we had any questions.
