Aircraft Financing

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.

The flight was fabulous, fun, and delicious. The crew was fantastic--professional and courteous. The flight attendant was spectacular--warm, wonderful and extremely attentive. The agent's support was once again terrific, thoughtful and professional. We will highly recommend these services to others.

Would definitely recommend to friends! Joel went above and beyond to get us home after hurricane Irma came through Florida! Joel was in a lot of communication with us due to the high air traffic that day! Can't wait to go through Stratos jets again!

Zach, I just wanted you to know that the gift basket did arrive. I haven’t seen it as I am out our home in the Hamptons, but my wife says that it’s beautiful. Also, I just wanted to thank you for a job extremely well done for me and my family. I too work in a service business and have always mentored our staff on how important it is to serve our clients with passion and zeal, to always be their advocate. You have learned those lessons well for so early in your career. So, many thanks. I’m sure that there will be a “next time” for my family (private air travel is addictive, as you probably know. Until our paths cross again . . . Michael

We love Joel!

The service was absolutely 1st class... I was very satisfied and would recommend this company and agent to anyone.

5 1 5 04/17/2021

Anthony was great to work with and quickly provided all updates and changes for his client for us to communicate to our pilots and prepare the trip. We were glad for the opportunity to work with you all and look forward to helping with more trips in the near future!!

5 1 5 11/05/2021

The team and the total Stratos experience consistently impresses me on every trip! The immediate feedback, the technology platform which enables an immediate view of flight and aircraft availability, and of course the wonderful and accommodating communication with the whole team; Stratos is always amazing! They always go the extra mile and are always being preventative and proactive long before wheels up and down. As Stratos clients, we don’t feel any of the industry's current supply crunch. Whatever we have tasked Stratos with they have met and exceeded our needs and we could not ask for more or be happier. The experience, year-over-year is that Stratos has only added more options, more operators and we have only great experiences.

I clicked on your “submit” option but not certain it went. In any event, trip great, pilot charming and helpful and Joel Thomas outstanding in responsiveness, patience and constant availability.

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

5 1 5 10/05/2017

Our company jet had a mechanical problem and we had a very important meeting that our passsengers had to make. Joel was able to locate and reposition an airplane for us in a matter of two hours. Our passengers were able to make their meeting and were very pleased with the aircraft/crew that was selected. Good work.

5 1 5 01/27/2021

Incredibly responsive, great service, sourced a great plane, would definitely recommend to friends.

5 1 5 06/11/2018

KERRY HILL WENT ABOVE AND BEYOND TO HELP ME WITH THIS TRIP FOR MR. SOLLBERGER. SHE IS PATIENT AND KNOWLEDGABLE AND WAS MORE THAN HAPPY TO HELP SEE THAT MR <REDACTED> ARRIVED SAFELY ON THE GROUND AND AT HIS HOTEL . I CANNOT SAY ENOUGH ABOUT KERRY'S EXCELLENCE. THE FLIGHT AND CREW WERE EXCELLENT AS WELL.

5 1 5 09/19/2018

My boss recently travelled to Europe for the entire month of August. During that time his jet had mechanical issues and could no longer fly where he wanted. He had about 12 flights left in his trip around Europe and Stratos Jet Charters, especially Heather Latch, saved our lives. They were able to accommodate 90% of the trips he wanted at the time he wanted. She really was a life saver for myself and my boss. I will definitely use Stratos Jets again and work with Heather any day of the week! They are magnificent!!

5 1 5 03/31/2019

As always great coordination. I was not on the flight but rather my family and Stratos arranged everything. Even with a winter storm, my wife being delayed, De-icing and two sick kids on-board, Stratos updated me while I was over seas and I knew everything was handled without any issues. The pilots we super kind and accommodating and it made for a wonderful trip. All ground transport, catering and logistics went flawlessly and the Stratos team even arranged my ground transport meeting them from a commercial flight. I cant say enough about the team and their personal pride and care for my family. Thank you again!

5 1 5 01/02/2021

All items of booking, plane flight, pilots and limo pick up were great Anthony was the best to deal with; lots of communication in every part of process. Will be returning with you in May. Would also recommend to friends and colleagues 

5 1 5 03/24/2017

This survey reall doesn't apply to the use my company had with Stratos. We had to expedite a piece of equipment and a contractor to our facility to perform some emergency repairs. The process however did go well and the equipment and person arrived on time and the entire process was handled by Will Buckley in a very professional manner and was extremely helpful in making this adventure easy and convenient. He was great to work with and if the occasion should arise to use charter services again, we will contact you. thanks again

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.
Thanks again for everything!

5 1 5 07/19/2021

From start to finish everything was perfect. Steve Stogner was awesome, professional, efficient, great follow up . Our pax’s said “ absolutely loved the experience, great pilots, beautiful aircraft “

5 1 5 11/05/2021

Outstanding service throughout entire process. Able to meet requirements quickly Professional service provided while maintaining a personal touch

5 1 5 01/31/2020

Working together with Stratosjets felt like working with my own team - very friendly and coorperative employees - loyal and trustworthy team - thanks a lot!

5 1 5 12/10/2016

Garrett is fantastic to work with. He is kind, responsive and you can tell he really cares about his customers. I worked with a different company on our way to our destination because Garrett could not find a plane. The agent at that company did not compare favorably to Garrett. I would highly recommend Garrett.

5 1 5 04/03/2018

Stratos was so easy to work with. Kerri was so understanding of a couple itinerary changes we had to make to ensure a safe, smooth flight. As our charter ops director, I sincerely appreciate when our customers realize that our decisions are in their best interest. Though not always ideal, we always provide our best option given uncontrollable variables such as weather, winds, etc. Thank you so much for doing such an awesome job. Any feedback you have would be greatly appreciated in return!

5 1 5 04/14/2020

Always a pleasure working with Stratos Jets. Never have had a bad experience.

5 1 5 04/13/2022

Our company attempted for 2 days to secure a private jet for our business trip out of Tucson, AZ to Ban Nuys, CA. Then I contacted Stratos Jet. Within hours Stratos Jet accomplished what all the other private jet charters failed to do. We will now always start with Stratos Jets before wasting time with their competitors. Stratos Jet went ABOVE & BEYOND in their customer service & professionalism. And that 1st class treatment of service continued thru all phases of our business trip from start to return.

5 1 5 03/19/2017

Service was incredible. Joel and Stratos was fantastic. Had a delayed special occasion and they went out of their way to make everything perfect. It was a surprise trip and could not have been easier to work with and very helpful in getting all arrangements made for in-flight. Beyond a 5 star. Thank you all for making a special trip a truly MEMORABLE one for us!!!

5 1 5 12/22/2020

We had a great flight and would definitely recommend this to a friend. Thanks to Anthony for his attentive, personal service. Rgds, Michael

5 1 5 01/13/2018

As always, Joel and team delivered. The whole experience was seamless. I would highly recommend Joel and the entire Stratos team!

5 1 5 12/21/2021

Booking was easy, you made thr whole experience easy.

5 1 5 07/15/2018

Always a pleasure to do business with Stratos Jets. Smooth process from booking to completion. A great organization.

5 1 5 02/25/2012

Everything was perfect - nothing to improve. Many thanks to Richard Gomulka for his assistance - he was great!

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

The Stratos Jet Charters team provides a seamless & excellent experience from beginning to end. They are a forward thinking company that puts the customer first and never disappoints with any trip or itinerary. Would absolutely recommend to anyone!

5 1 5 04/02/2018

It is always a pleasure working with the Stratos Jets team. Communication is always prompt and neatly organized. Thank you for your business. We look forward to our next trip together.

I was pleased with the way Heather assisted me. She followed-up throughout the process and during the flight.

5 1 5 08/19/2014

Everybody was great. The plane could use a bit of a face lift, but since we were transporting eight animals, it was okay. I would definitely recommend Stratos to anyone who asks.

5 1 5 12/24/2016

You did great. Garett was great, ground transportation was clean, easy and on-time and seamless. It was a good trip and I have already asked for another quote. Don't know if I will use it depending upon cost as this next one is purely personal. But I would like to.

5 1 5 01/01/2022

Hi! All was well except for when we are relaying delays, service issue etc several different people will respond at the company with different questions or concerns. Having one, main point of contact for each trip would be helpful so we don't get calls or emails from several different people within the company. Besides that we love you guys and the booking process is always easy. Deb

5 1 5 10/14/2021

As always, Stratos has the best selection of aircraft and crew. Zach is amazing to work with.

5 1 5 04/15/2020

yes!

5 1 5 08/27/2019

My experience with Joel and his team a Stratos was great! We had a little wrinkle in our trip when we were diverted from our destination to another airport. It had nothing to do with our flight. There was a disabled plan on the runway. We diverted to the other airport and waited briefly for word on when it would clear. Joel and his team were all over it. They had alternate transportation lined up for us, which, we didn't end up using and ultimately got back on the plane and went to our intended destination. There were no extra charges and we only lost about an hour. Our return trip was fast and uneventful. Stratos helped us find the right plane for our trip and kept us within our budget. Thanks Joel and team!

5 1 5 12/27/2016

We have been using Stratos for a couple of years now and appreciate their dedication to using only the safest charter operators. Just completed the front end of a back to back for the Christmas Holiday.

5 1 5 07/21/2022

Kerry was absolutely amazing!! She made the entire process very seamless and so easy for me. Made me look very good to my boss. She kept me informed of the entire trip, from the plane arriving at the airport to wheels down at the final destination. I have nothing but extreme praise for Kerry and her customer service.

5 1 5 12/05/2016

KEEP UP GOOD WORK,WHEN I CALLED WILL HAD MY PAST INFORMATION IN HAND.HE WAS GREAT

5 1 5 02/21/2021

we will, repeat, refer, and appreciate, thank you.

5 1 5 01/04/2019

I wouldn't recommend this plane that much though. One pilot was nice the other kinda ambivalent. The temp of the plane was either hot or cold and the electrical plugs not functioning. It was transportation only. But we are so happy to all be here with the rest of the family. it was worth the effort.

5 1 5 08/03/2022

Daniel was very responsive late into the night and early morning and was able to arrange our flight in hours. Time from first contact to wheels up was less than 12 hours. The FBO's and crew provides were very accommodating and helpful. 5 stars!

5 1 5 05/09/2014

It was all great. The only problem even though the rental car was right there waiting for us, it had a terrible stale cigarette odor which was most uncomfortable for our journey home. That's not your fault but I would never rent from Hertz again.

5 1 5 07/22/2020

5 1 5 03/01/2018

Wonderful! Plan to do it again. My wife and I had no idea that such a level of GREAT service was available.

5 1 5 01/27/2019

We were so very pleased with the planning, follow up and service. Do not waste your time or money looking anywhere else.
