Aircraft Management

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.

I always enjoy working with Stratos Jets. They have a great operation that is seamless.

5 1 5 05/24/2020

Everything was perfect. Kyle was extremely helpful. Answered all questions quickly and was very professional without a “hard sell” style. Everyone I dealt with was perfect. The flight itself was fast, quiet, comfortable. The plane was very clean, and well maintained. Both crew were helpful and pleasant. It is very likely that we will travel like this again and Stratos will be our provider. Thanks again. Susan

Passenger stated that the "jet interior was shoddy and showed that the jet wasn't well taken care of." Said crew was nice. Stated no coffee available although I had specified de-caf to be provided and followed that up with company client services requesting same. 

5 1 5 07/17/2014

Your company really cares about it's customer and made us feel so comfortable and confident. I would recommend your service to others.

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

5 1 5 02/05/2018

Always enjoy flying privately. Exciting from planning a trip to booking to flight(s). Predominantly use Stratos. Attentive and personal service. Joel Thomas was a great go to person. All subcontractors that they use have been top-notched. Only critique is I obtained better final pricing of the flight when I received quotes from other charter companies. Seems to be an industry thing about competitive pricing in order to obtain the best price. Yes I would recommend Stratos.

5 1 5 01/17/2013

I can't think of anything that wasn't handled perfectly. We'd like to extend a special thanks to the crew who were extremely helpful in loading and unloading the equipment.

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 05/01/2020

I have already recommended Joel to two people and they are both using him!!! I gave Joel only two hours to find us a plane.For medical reasons, we had to go to Houston....In two hours, I had three options...he is wonderful!

5 1 5 09/27/2013

None that I can think of

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 04/10/2013

Everything was very good, however, I am disappointed that I was quoted one price and was charged another.

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 09/21/2013

5 1 5 01/03/2017

We can't speak highly enough of our experience with Stratus Jet Charters. From start to finish they were very professional, responsive and caring. We look forward to the opportunity of using Stratos Jet Charters for our next adventure.

5 1 5 03/30/2010

Thank you for making this very easy for us!! I look forward to a long relationship with Stratos Jet Charter!!

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 12/26/2017

As always the flight and booking process was handled with ease and professionalism. Our pilots were very personable and the aircraft was exactly what we were looking for.

5 1 5 02/12/2014

No improvements needed.

5 1 5 05/01/2020

Joel and his staff made a family loss so much easier to deal with. They are like family and they have my business whenever I need it and they’re available.

5 1 5 04/13/2013

Apparently the air wasn't working properly and was an uncomfortable flight until we were in the air.

5 1 5 11/22/2019

Thanks for all your updates. I could get used to this.

5 1 5 08/14/2017

As always, the folks at Stratos Jet Charters did an outstanding job responding to a short-notice requirement for supplemental lift for our flight department. Their staff is always focused on the customer needs and preferences. Through their proven performance, they have become my "go-to" solution when the need arises.

5 1 5 04/01/2018

Loved everything about our flight, thanks to the unbelievable service from Kerry and Sarah.  We were so very pleased with the planning, follow up and service. Do not waste your time or money looking anywhere else. Kerry is a super rock star of customer service. Wow!

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 11/29/2018

I made all of the arrangements for the charter flight for my boss and his family. I worked with Joel Thomas personally, who took the time with me to show the jet options available, all the while considering my boss's medical issues and care requirements. He emailed a jet comparison guide with photographs to view side-by-side so that I could make a wise and informed decision, and walked me through them over the phone. He was determined to provide the best possible experience for everyone. Joel made it all so easy, and it was clear after conversations with him that he has a heart for people and genuinely cares about their needs. I ordered in-flight catering, over the phone, which could not have been any easier. The food was plentiful and exceptional! My boss called me the next day asking that I inquire as to who the local caterer was that supplied the food, as he wants to make sure that we use them in the future. They staged all of the food on beautiful white platters that looked classy and elegant, as though it was all prepared for red carpet guests. And every selection was freshly prepared that day and over the top in flavor! The pilot was very nice and personable and clearly cared about the comfort and safety of his passengers. The plane was extremely comfortable and very luxurious. The seating was perfect for the six of them and their cat, Molly! I received a call the next day from my boss's grown daughter, and all she did was rave about how it was first class all the way! She said I always do such a great job. LOL! It was Joel and the Stratos team that did all the work! My part was easy! Ohhh, and Joel also went out of his way to arrange for ground transportation upon their flight's arrival. I can say from personal experience over the years, that flying does not get any better than going first class with Joel Thomas and his team at Stratos Jet Charters. I want to thank them for making me look like the best assistant ever!!

5 1 5 01/27/2019

Stratos Jets has always been Organized and on point through the booking process. Their clear communication has always made it possible to execute each trip smoothly and as planned. This consistency has made them a trusted and pleasant company for us to work with. True honest business people! Thank you!

5 1 5 10/02/2017

I was thouroughly impressed with the professionalism of the Broker Joel, the flight organizer Sarah and the crew on both legs. The aircraft was clean, in good shape and right on time. The crew was friendly and professional to me and my guests. Two small issues were getting a tail number on less than 12 hours that made getting our rental cars more complex than necessary and more significant was being notified by our bank that you tried to bill my flight a couple times when I paid in full prior to first leg. All in all I would use them again but would encourage one contact who checks in daily a few days prior to flight rather than me having try to figure out who to call when it looked like a couple problems were coming up.

5 1 5 08/06/2017

You guys are great! Keep em coming

5 1 5 03/14/2017

Joel I do not use google sign in re survey Let me simply say Ms Hill was outstanding every step of the way as was the service at Dolphin Sun night Thank you Jim W. Charter flight Omaha to Sarasota Mar 12

5 1 5 09/21/2017

Would highly recommend anyone looking for charters to contact Stratos. Their team was second to none in handling our request from first call to post flight. The CEO was even kind enough to phone me to ensure that we had located our crew at the FBO just prior to departure. I have run multiple aircraft in flight departments for many years and can truly say that its hard to find this level of professionalism in the business.

5 1 5 09/10/2012

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 10/06/2013

While this was the first time between these two cities, we may take this route frequently in the future.

5 1 5 09/29/2017

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 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 03/29/2014

We have used another broker and they too have been very good. I have enjoyed the two trips that I have booked with you and I have booked a third next month

5 1 5 11/26/2016

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 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 10/05/2012

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.

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!

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 10/14/2019

Kim was such a pleasure to work with and always kept in contact with us whenever there was a change or new request. She was professional and courteous, I look forward to working with her in the future if Stratos chooses to book from our fleet again :)

5 1 5 10/03/2017

Joel Thomas and his great team at Stratos makes booking a private charter easy. They keep in contact with you from the start right through to after the flight, which gives my travelers a piece of mind. Everything is always exactly planned to our specifications. Stratos really goes above and beyond in their industry - they are simply the best at what they do.

5 1 5 10/28/2019

We are very happy with Stratos and will contact again when we return to our summer home next May. The fuel stop in Charleston was not scheduled but we understand that depends on the winds. Burlington Vermont to Fort Myers Florida is near the range list of a 400XP
