Management of Aircraft

If you own a private jet, it’s important to find an aircraft management company that aligns with your goals. This is where Stratos Jet Charters can assist.

The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) heavily regulates general aviation through Part 91 and Part 135 operations. Part 91 is applicable to non-commercial operations, and the regulations listed in Part 135 apply to commercial operations.

Part 91 Aircraft Management

If you intend on flying for personal reasons only, Part 91 Aircraft Management is a great fit as it’s intended for those not looking to profit from transportating strangers and/or cargo. By partnering with Stratos, you can utilize our Part 91 license and enjoy aircraft ownership without the typical ownership burdens.

Through our partnership, we ensure the criteria for Part 91 operations are met while managing:

  • Aircraft maintenance and avionic repairs
  • Pilot and crew recruitment and training
  • Adherence to FAA regulations, including recordkeeping and reporting
  • Flight scheduling and coordination

Part 135 Management Placement Services

For those aircraft owners hoping to leverage their aircraft between trips, Part 135 Management Placement Services is likely the best fit. Part 135 Operations regulations are tightly regulated, but a management company can help you navigate through each regulation to ensure your aircraft is in the best position to achieve your goals.

When you choose to charter your aircraft with Stratos Jet Charters, you can enjoy all the perks of owning a private jet while offsetting some of the costs that come along with it. Our fee for this service is performance based and paid for by the air carrier.

Through this partnership, we’ll:

  • Identify the best suited Part 135 air carriers
  • Negotiate the agreement on your behalf
  • Provide on-board support
  • Thoroughly monitor the aircraft
  • Drive revenue to your aircraft

Protect Your Asset with Stratos Jets

We know your private jet is important to you, which is why we take every possible step to ensure it’s held to the highest standard of care. As a frequent user of private aviation, only you can decide which Part is best for you. However, our management services have been put in place to ensure the process is as simple and straightforward as possible.

The service was impeccable

5 1 5 06/28/2018

From start to finish, our experience with Stratos was totally professional, made very simple and the ultimate in how charter travel should be booked/enjoyed! We know it takes an entire team behind the scenes but all credit to Joel for his 'personal' touch and for making our return trip to New York a very memorable one indeed!!! We have used several charter companies worldwide over the years but Joel and his team beat them all!!!

5 1 5 03/03/2021

I thought it was very well-organized and information flows were smooth. The broker worked with me to get an excellent option at an attractive pricing point. The flight was smooth and professional. An outstanding experience!

5 1 5 05/05/2021

Appreciate Glenn's attention to detail and follow up. He is great to work with.

5 1 5 09/17/2020

Smooth and easy

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 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 01/01/2018

I thought Stratos was professional and easy to work with. We didn't have any problems or communication issues whatsoever. It's really nice when we don't have to deal with 10 different people to coordinate a trip.

5 1 5 01/08/2023

Danny Morejon is a great facilitator who made this urgent flight possible within a matter of hours. He is also a good advocate for Stratos. Had it not been for the communication I had with him a few weeks ago when searching for flights, I wouldn’t have called back for assistance.

5 1 5 03/23/2020

Glenn was excellent to work with. I spoke with several charter companies before choosing Stratos. Glenn is the reason I chose Stratos Jet to bring my elderly parents home during the initial break of the COVID-19. He was professional, knowledgeable and on top of every detail. This was our first experience with a charter flight and Glenn explained the entire process from start to finish which helped me keep my anxiety in check. My parents flew from Florida to Ohio without any issues. They said the aircraft crew were professional and confident and made them feel safe. The plane was basic, cabin was small so it was a little challenging for older people with limited mobility. My parents are short, 5'4 and 5'1 and both had to duck down to get on and off the plane and while inside the cabin. That being said, we were given the option of a more luxurious cabin but chose not to spend the extra money. Stratos took care of getting my elderly parents home quickly, safely and allowed us to minimize the risks of commercial flying at this time.

5 1 5 12/17/2018

I could not ask for more, I love using Stratos and will never use anyone else!

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 02/21/2012

Can't think of a thing!

5 1 5 10/31/2020

No complaints. Thank you for your help. Art

5 1 5 10/14/2014

For our far flung family, Stratos has been a consistently dependable, and cost conscious alternative to fractional and no-minimum jet programs. For us, safety is number one and cost is number two... Stratos has excelled in both areas. Their response to requests is always prompt and personal.  It is a pleasure working with Stratos.

5 1 5 11/03/2016

Great experience with Stratos Jet Charters! Superior knowledge and outstanding customer service! Went above and beyond to make sure our flight was perfect. Highly recommended for anything from a short turboprop trip, to a transcontinental flight.

5 1 5 06/04/2020

I will definitely use Stratos Jets again and will recommend the company without hesitation. It has been several years since I have chartered a jet and this process was very easy and friendly.

5 1 5 10/18/2012

My only complaint with Stratos is that Initially, I did not received the lowest price quote.

5 1 5 12/21/2021

everything went very well in all areas.Thank you .

5 1 5 04/13/2017

I would like to be able to track aircraft on internet.

5 1 5 11/26/2018

Everything about our experience was great. The quoting process was painless - several options were presented. Once the decisions were made there was great follow up from Rachel and her colleagues to handle every administrative matter with our trip. Everything went as planned and we were very happy. I would highly recommend considering Stratos for your next charter.

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.

Thank you for bringing this to our attention.  I appreciate the feedback and opportunity for me to address this with the air carrier. I have contacted them and shared your experience with them.  Your health and safety is of the utmost importance to us.  While operating in this COVID-19 environment brings new challenges; sharing your experience, has allowed Stratos to identify opportunities to improve the customer experience by implementing several pro-active steps as well as additional QA requirements on the day of flight.  We sincerely appreciate our relationship with you and your willingness to help us get better every day!

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 02/18/2019

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

5 1 5 03/26/2021

Katie was great on very short notice. Here is were the 5th star was lost: No on board bathroom and I was not told about it. I specifically asked about quality of safety and maintenance by operator and got incorrect information initially; although there was no apparent problem .

5 1 5 08/31/2020

Excellent service from Anthony all the way around. Quick response for a last second booking, great follow-up and great online itinerary management service.

5 1 5 06/02/2021

I called with pretty much an immediate need. With in two hours trip was covered. Great service

5 1 5 09/15/2017

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!

5 1 5 12/21/2021

As far as I can tell the flight was great. My nephew, his wife and their dog flew from California to Guam for a move. The airport they flew from was changed the day prior to departure due to weather. The catering however didn't make it to the airport so they were on the plane for 15 hours with only the complimentary snacks and the crew shared some of their food with them. When you fly private you expect things to go smoothly...that's why you're willing to pay the extremely high price for. In my opinion there were opportunities missed to make it right. Since they had to refuel in Hawaii there was at least 6 hours to get some kind of catering for them when they landed in Hawaii. I realize that catering needs 24 hours notice but someone couldn't gone above and beyond to make things right and get them fresh fruit and veggie platter with a plain hot pizza or something to give them something other than snacks. I know if the CEO of Stratos was flying this catering issue would've been unacceptable.

Carol - Thank you for bringing this to my attention and you are certainly right.  The ball was dropped.  I have spoken with the private flight advisor regarding the matter and our day of flight process was not followed.  Not having something ready in Hawaii during the fuel-stop is truly a missed opportunity.  I am truly sorry for our misstep and the poor experience this must have been for your nephew and his family.

As always, your staff is a pleasure to work with, and are very good with their communication, etc. I (of course) wish we didn't have the snafu with your client cutting the trip short, only to change his mind - costing us an additional 3 hours of flight time (approx. $10,000) - since we cancelled a trip with another operator to accommodate his request to leave early. I think there should have been a consideration for a 2 hour cancellation fee or something there. We understand that this wasn't Stratos Jets' doing - but I believe your client should have been penalized in some way as he was informed we had another trip and he told us to cancel it to accommodate him. This was very disappointing (and financially detrimental) for us, especially as we had lowered the cost of the trip (in addition to removing all minimums) prior to booking. The only way it made sense for us to do that was to fly while sitting transient.

5 1 5 08/19/2021

Everything was above and beyond. Thank you!

5 1 5 08/28/2019

Team was very efficient and communicated in a timely, professional manner. Made it a breeze to work with! Thanks!

5 1 5 07/24/2017

Very professional, very knowledgeable - truly care about their clients. Stratos is always very good to work with. When one of their requests come in we know we will be treated equitably, politely, and professionally, as the Operator. The Stratos team is always friendly and thorough. The Stratos Guests are always very good to our Flight Crews, which we appreciate very much. I would highly recommend Stratos Jet Charters. Malachi Mountain Aviation.

5 1 5 09/19/2013

None, Ricky Gomulka takes care of everything, and I honestly like dealing only with him everytime I call. Very hard working and goes over and beyond for me.

5 1 5 09/30/2014

Professionalism and attention to detail come to mind when working with Stratos Jet Charters, Inc. From initial engagement to the jets to take off - they didn't miss a beat. My Employer is extremely concerned with privacy and professionalism and Stratos Jet Charters did not disappoint.

5 1 5 10/19/2020

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.
 

5 1 5 11/29/2020

Everything went as smoothly as it possibility could have. Special kudos to Randy who was perfect in his communication skills. Good equipment, good pilots ...great trip thanks

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 06/28/2021

From the first quote and phone call to departing the plane and follow up, service was outstanding! Frank (our point of contact) saw to every question and requirement we had with professionalism, courteousness, and speed. I am very used to hiccups and miscommunications when traveling, but with this trip there were absolutely none. The flight crew was friendly, accommodating, and very good at what they do. The flight was probably the smoothest I've ever had. I know that depends on a lot of factors, but it definitely added to the experience. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend and use Stratos Jets in the future.

5 1 5 01/04/2021

This was my 3rd trip with Stratosjets and all travel were arranged by Kyle Jones. Everything was efficiently and professionally done, and Kyle and the team were always prompt and responsive. I definitely will recommend the team to friends. Thank you.

5 1 5 06/20/2017

From pre-trip planning to updates via text message on your way to the airport, Stratos had us covered. We made our way from Emirates @ JFK and the FOB transfer was easy. Joel had already updated Julie (my assistant) before we landed that there were long delays out of JFK due to weather. The transfer to FBO was easy and they were expecting us. The plane was comfortable and modern and the crew could not have been kinder. Thank you guys as always for a great trip. Flight was great and the crew took us right past the storms and my one year old son slept the whole trip; a much needed reprieve for my wife and I.

5 1 5 02/12/2014

This was a fantastic trip and our family will remember the rest of their life. Wife says it is the only way to travel via air. Everything was handled perfect

5 1 5 02/12/2014

No improvements needed.

5 1 5 11/22/2017

Always a pleasure. Happy Thanksgiving.

5 1 5 10/14/2021

I couldn't be happier with level of service provided to me by Frank and his team! Everything was so easy and just a click away. I really appreciated Franks attentiveness to my trips. Stratos Jet will definitely have my business in the future. Thank you Frank & team, you are awesome!!!

THANK YOU STRATOS!! I have been working with Stratos Jet Charters for almost 3 years now & could not be happier with the services they provide! Working with me on many last minute changes, they are always quick & efficient, extremely professional, genuinely honest & immensely knowledgeable of all products and services they offer. They truly look out for the best interests of their clients. I trust them to always guide me in making the appropriate aircraft choices for our company. I find the ENTIRE team to be THE BEST in the charter aircraft business!!

5 1 5 02/02/2017

As a part 135 operator, I have been doing business with Stratos Jets since it was founded by Joel Thomas in 2006. Since the first trip I could tell they were a different type of Jet brokerage. Joel and his team of aviation advisors have always conducted themselves with the highest of standards and partnered with platinum operators like us to give their customers a luxurious private jet experience. Thank you for a decade of partnership and excellence. Thank you for your friendship! Rich Brennan VP of Sales

5 1 5 10/23/2017

Would highly recommend EVERYONE ALIVE! Amazing service. Awesome team, from first call to post flight. Top flight!

5 1 5 06/15/2020
