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.

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 .

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 05/23/2021

Would recommend Stratosjets to all of our friends, was a truly awesome experience!

5 1 5 09/22/2020

Joel Thomas is knowledgeable and attentive. We always feel that we are getting the attention we need. The charters he has put together for us have been exactly how we wanted them to be. We have no hesitation in giving him our highest rating.

Heather was an important part of my chose in Stratos.

5 1 5 06/23/2022

The process was easy; plane, limo, pilots and boarding went smoothly

5 1 5 07/03/2019

Stratus extremely professional company.

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 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 06/12/2017

Joel and the team at Stratos Jet Charters were great. Even on short notice, Joel was able to charter a plane for me in California and made sure that it was a smooth process the whole trip. He was readily available when I had several last minute changes to the itinerary. Highly recommend.

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 02/05/2021

Great trip all round. Glenn and the team were terrific. The crew on the day were amazing.

5 1 5 03/10/2014

The aircraft was fine except for the AC. It either had to be run a full blast (we were wrapped up in blankets) or it had to be off in which case we were very hot.

5 1 5 07/22/2021

As a repeat customer of Stratos we have always been treated with care and understanding of the circumstances surrounding our travel needs. When Joel was unavailable Zach jumped right in without missing a beat.

5 1 5 12/07/2016

Ricky was awesome and everything went smoothly. I will certainly use your services again should a need arise. Thank you for everything!

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 04/10/2013

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

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 01/31/2020

The flight was great. Kyle was easy to work with and very professional. The plane was very comfortable and our pilots were terrific! Great experience all around!

5 1 5 12/31/2010

Great trip!  Keep us informed of empty legs to Aspen

5 1 5 12/23/2018

Working with Stratos Jet has been a great experience. Even with making last minute accommodations for the client, the complete process was effortless with great communication from Stratros Jet! We will be looking forward to our next flight together.

5 1 5 08/23/2013

Kevin is great to work with. I'll call him again. the aircraft crew were great. Thank you for making this trip so easy for us.

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!

As always, the booking went well, the trip was on time, the crew great: another perfect flight. Thanks.

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 02/25/2012

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

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 08/24/2018

Everything great but itineraries always change last minute (tail #, terminal) which has caused problems.

5 1 5 12/28/2013

None that I can think of.  Great flight

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 09/12/2017

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 12/06/2012

I had an exceptional time with outstanding service and crew!

5 1 5 03/20/2020

Absolutely wonderful,....would recommend this to anyone [if they can afford it], real value….worth every penny!! Absolute comfort,.. courteous,... simple booking,...true luxury,.....best possible trip home from Florida !!

5 1 5 05/03/2017

I met Joel, years ago, when he first introduced me to Stratos Jet Charters during its start-up phase.  I was always very impressed on their marketing and honesty, as a broker.  Joel is very genuine and caring when it comes to his customers or the operators that he works with.  I know that Stratos Jets will not sacrifice safety for anything.  I know that he likes to treat everyone like they are part of the Stratos Jet family.  The trip planning process, from quote request to trip planning to  invoice, is seamless – they’ve thought of everything and continue to be ahead of the trend in our industry with the way they do things.  They think of everything!  In my opinion, Stratos Jet Charters set the bar for aircraft brokerage and I will always continue to look forward to working with them.

5 1 5 01/02/2021

We had a great experience, Anthony our contact was in close contact before the flight keeping us updated and the service was excellent on both sides.

5 1 5 03/01/2019

The flight was excellent, 24 hours prior Sarah helped us with a departure window and the crew and FBO were really accommodating as we were running behind. Really nice Hawker 900XP nice pilots and smooth flight. Cant give enough praise to the Stratos process and ease.

5 1 5 05/23/2021

Thanks for the great service again Kyle!

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 .

5 1 5 04/05/2017

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

5 1 5 04/13/2017

No changes are needed, we were very pleased.

5 1 5 08/12/2020

 
Glenn is great to work with and very professional.
Sincerely, C. D. C.

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 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 12/07/2016

The Stratos team has always been highly professional, accommodating and easy to work with to plan and execute our trips. Additionally, their commitment to safety and utilizing experienced crew members puts us at ease to know every trip we book is not only enjoyable but very safe. Couldn't recommend them more!

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 02/13/2017

Stratos takes the complicated process of private air charter and makes it simple. They have helped me through the process and Joel even turned down my offer for purchasing a Pre-paid Jet card because he advised that it would not be a good fit for my home airport and family lifestyle. I shortly became a client after that because that experience was indicative of the company's overall honesty and great ethos. We have Chartered with Joel on multiple occasions and always get the the 3Gs of private air travel - Great Safety, Great Plane & Great Price. Stratos is a great company and they put your safety 1st and make the process easy. You can text or call them at anytime and their response time is amazing. You truly feel special. Flying on chartered planes is something we really value and keep very personal and discrete. Joel assists us in keeping the experience special and within our schedule and budget. I recommend Stratos to friends who have jet cards, fractional ownership and 1st timers alike. If you are considering charter, the 1st call to make is to Stratos. They never pressure you and value the relationship. I can not say enough about this team - A great experience!

5 1 5 03/05/2018

I had 15 piece band booked on a commercial airline that got cancelled due to weather. Every single flight for the next 2 days was sold out and the band was going to miss their performance. Thank to the Herculean efforts from Glenn and Joel, we were able to secure a flight for the following morning and get the band to Florida on time. Glenn was simply amazing with his follow-through, availability when I needed him and keeping an eye on everything. He was with me from the first phone call at 6:30pm until take-off the next morning at 10:10am. Thank you Stratos for saving the day!

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 01/09/2019

This flight was well managed with excellent communication with Joel. We had extreme weather conditions in OAK and Joel was open to correspondence past midnight local time to ensure all was not handled and decided morning of flight. We also appreciate Stratos Jets trust and confidence in following the lead of Axis Jet for moving their clients flight to the next day. We are looking forward to having many more successful flights with Stratos Jets.

The low approach over Newport was terrific....CAD even stopped talking. Have a nice w/e....David
