Aircraft Hull and Liability Insurance

Aircraft insurance is a necessary part of aircraft ownership. However, the rates, coverage, and terms vary widely from aircraft to aircraft. To ensure your aircraft has an appropriate policy in place, Stratos Jet Charters has partnered with an experienced insurance broker that can help you determine exactly which coverage is right for you.

What is Aircraft Hull and Liability Coverage?

The most basic level of an aircraft hull and liability insurance policy will protect your aircraft against damage and loss. The policy includes:

  • Physical damage
  • Medical coverage of passengers, crew, and pilots
  • All items onboard the aircraft, including passengers, baggage, and cargo
  • Aircraft third party liability, which includes damage to individuals or property caused by the aircraft

Selecting the Right Coverage

Depending on your aircraft needs, there may be one or several additional options that appeal to you. It’s important to consider the entire scope of the aircraft use. If you’re travelling out of the country often or tend to transport a sickly family member on occasion, there are options that you’ll want to consider. Some of these additional options include:

  • Geographic destinations/limits
  • Life insurance
  • Personal belongings and baggage coverage
  • Premises medical coverage
  • Trip interruption expense coverage
  • Spare engines and aircraft parts coverage
  • Emergency expense reimbursement
  • War risks coverage

When you first sit down to chat with an aircraft insurance agent, you’ll be asked several questions. They’ll need to know the make and model of your aircraft, how you plan to use it, information about the pilot, and more. These questions help shape the policy you’ll require. They may also lead to discounted premiums for your aircraft hull and liability insurance policy, if your aircraft and crew meet some of the eligibility requirements.

From the first email until the time we were wheels down in St. Thomas, the responsiveness, service, professionalism and attention to detail were exceptional. There is absolutely no chance I will ever use anyone else and I will be sure to share my experiences with my colleague’s here on Capitol Hill and in my professional and personal circles. A special acknowledgement to Glenn, for everything he did to make this a seamless business experience! Regards, Larnell Director, Travel, Security and Facilities,

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!!!

5 1 5 01/24/2018

As the assistant who actually booked the trip and made the plans for my employer and her family, I must say that the experience was a new one for me. That said, the unfamiliar process was made much simpler thanks to the knowledge, expertise and patience of my rep, Christina Nesbit. She was extremely informative and helped thru each step of the process, reassuring me that the passengers were getting the most appropriate plane for their needs. I will double check to be sure there isn't any additional feedback I am missing, but to date I was told that the flight was a pleasurable one and they were appreciative and impressed that the President came to greet them pre flight as well. Thank you, Shari

5 1 5 07/17/2014

Your service was very professional as was the a/c and crew.

5 1 5 07/19/2017

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.

5 1 5 03/27/2018

As always, Joel and his team made this a seamless trip. We enjoyed every moment from booking to take off and landing and everything in between. Thank you!

5 1 5 01/01/2022

Other than the expected 12/26 ATC "hold" , we enjoyed another perfect flight!; great crew, great equipment and a most pleasant ride!!

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 06/08/2021

Zach was pleasant, knowledgeable, efficient and a delight to deal with. I have usually used another broker but Zach won the charter for your company Joel. Well done.

5 1 5 10/23/2018

From the quoting and booking process to wheels up and down, things could not be better with STRATOS. Joel and his team are amazing and accommodated a last minute return schedule change. They only contract with great companies who have great equipment and outstanding crew. If you are considering Private jet travel I cannot recommend them enough!

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 05/17/2021

We had a great experience, particularly with Steve and the booking process, as well as with flight, which was fantastic. We would highly recommend Stratos. Thanks again!

5 1 5 10/15/2021

Top notch experience, pilot was amazing, plane was great, service was phenomenal. No complaints at all.

5 1 5 05/07/2022

After our plane developed mechanical problems and a night of discomfort and doubt, Kyle was able to find a plane and a crew at last minute to save my wife's 60th birthday trip. We arrived a little late but we arrived! You are the best Kyle.

5 1 5 02/21/2022

Great partnership and always a pleasure working with your team! We are all looking forward to many more.

5 1 5 06/12/2014

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

5 1 5 03/13/2015

It was excellent in every respect

5 1 5 06/30/2017

It is clear that Stratos Jets is one of best charter brokerage companies in the world. When we get the pleasure to work with Joel and his entire team, we get to see first hand what sets them apart. The knowledge of operations, safety and different charter markets is always spot on. The trips are sent to us complete and executed flawlessly which makes the entire process more effiecient and better served the client. In addition to being one of the top aviation professional, Joel is a role model for many and I am grateful to have him part of my journey as a friend.

5 1 5 05/17/2020

Plane was not clean. One pilot claimed to have a mask but never wore it, despite being told to. My booking with Stratos was clear and should have been obvious even if I hadn’t specifically asked for a clean plane and a masked crew. My wife and I neither ate (to not remove our masks) nor used the bathroom ( the unmasked pilot had to use the bathroom shortly after departure). By far our most uncomfortable air travel made worse by the fact that it was private.

Stratos was great and we for sure will recommend our broker to our friends

5 1 5 06/16/2021

Anthony quickly found a charter that met our destination and date requirements.

5 1 5 11/03/2016

Great charter flight with Stratos. They went the extra effort to ensure we had a comfortable jet with the highest safety standard.

5 1 5 12/22/2016

Ricky takes care of everything, and I honestly like dealing only with him every time I call. Very hard working and goes over and beyond for me.

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 11/23/2020

The entire Stratos Jets support team is always a pleasure to work with. As an operator, we appreciate the exceptional communicativeness of the SJ team; Kyle Jones was excellent as our SJ contact for this trip. Payment for the trip is always prompt. Any and all information we need is provided and day-of support is phenomenal. We are looking forward to working with you again soon! -Flying Zebra Team

Smooth across the board as always. Thanks for the trip.

5 1 5 04/13/2017

Yuri was wonderful!

5 1 5 05/31/2022

amazing experience.

5 1 5 08/13/2012

Pilot did a terrible job of synchronizing the engines. It was bad enough at one point that the two guest passengers were worried we would need an emergency landing. I have flown on Hawkers for 15 years now and never had that experience. Crew was very nice, but the pilot needs some instruction. It was very disconcerting.

5 1 5 02/20/2021

Smooth, calm, on time and will use it again

5 1 5 10/28/2020

Hassle free travel! Everyone is helpful an kind.

5 1 5 04/27/2020

Thank You very much. Our experience from the beginning to the end were handled with such care and consideration. Felt very comfortable and am very glad that we chose you.

5 1 5 02/18/2019

The crew of Citation very good Cordial and effective Trip punctual all good Thanks

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 08/10/2020

I wanted to thank you for making the arrangements for my trip up north on 7/29/20 & the return flight yesterday with Tyler et all to Orlando. Everyone was very polite, timely, and helpful and we felt completely safe & comfortable traveling with Stratos Jet Charters.

Wishing you well & grateful for a wonderful alternative for traveling.

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 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 09/22/2021

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

5 1 5 09/15/2017

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!

5 1 5 01/09/2017

Our company uses Stratos, we work directly with Kerry, she and everyone else have always been extremely helpful and manage our flights and requests with no problem! They respond friendly, quickly and we have no interest in ever switching companies. Highly recommended! Extremely happy clients!

5 1 5 08/16/2017

Always great working with you guys!! Great job all around as usual.

5 1 5 11/05/2021

Stratos helped us make an amazing memory … I flew my elderly parents (90+ years old) from SC to PA for the day to spend time with our entire family. Everything from the planning, scheduling and coordination was seamless and went off smooth and in time. The pilots were so kind and gracious with my parents and made the 1.5 hour flight enjoyable. I must say at the heart of this entire experience was Kerry Hill of Stratos, she made it her mission to make this truly special, she went above and beyond… thank you so much Kerry & Stratos! All the best … Billy

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 12/21/2021

As always, every aspect of the trip from booking to deplaning could not have been more enjoyable and efficient!!

5 1 5 02/02/2017

I have dealt with Stratos Jet for the past 10 years Always great response and outstanding service Highly recommend them for any charter service you may need

5 1 5 02/15/2021

Stratos was prompt, professional, and competitive. They were also willing to work with me as I was having second thoughts, without being pushy. I had a very enjoyable experience and look forward to using them again.

5 1 5 01/02/2014

I think you all did a great job!!! If we book with enough notice, maybe a newer ride? Not to say that the Hawker we flew was not great.. Only my thoughts. Joe"

5 1 5 10/14/2019

Always great to work with you guys.

5 1 5 06/08/2022

The pilots were very kind and understanding. We had enough luggage capacity but the jet itself I thought was a little less luxurious than what I had imagined. All in all it was a good trip.

5 1 5 06/18/2020

I will recommend Stratos and will give them Randy name/number, he was very professional, on the ball in all aspects!!!!! I had contacted 4 other companies - Randy was the best, that is why we went with Stratos .
