The Super Bowl of Racing

There are NASCAR races, and then there’s the Daytona 500. Dubbed the ‘Super Bowl of stock car racing,’ this high-octane event draws an estimated 140,000 race fans from across the world every February.

The 66th Daytona 500, which goes on Feb. 18, 2024, is a chance for race fans to visit the newest speedway on the NASCAR circuit. Unveiled in 2017, Daytona International Speedway’s $400 million overhaul was designed to improve the spectator experience. With an $18 million purse, which is by far the largest in the Monster Energy NASCAR Cup race series, it’s easy to see why the Daytona 500 holds so much appeal for both fans and racers.

With more than 40 drivers attaining top speeds approaching 200mph over 200 laps, the action is fast and fierce. But perhaps the thing that makes this race so unique is it’s the first event on the NASCAR calendar. Almost every other major sporting event holds its marquee event at the end of the season.

For those who prefer to travel in style, private planes are a great way to get from the runway to the popular Florida speedway.

The Daytona 500 is a 500-mile, 200-lap NASCAR event held every February at Daytona Beach International Speedway. Despite being the season-opening race of the Sprint Cup series, it’s widely considered the most important race of the season. While the driver points awarded at Daytona are the same as any other series stop, the overall prize purse far exceeds the others.

My family has flown with you dozens of times. Everything, from booking, to the flights, to the follow-up shows that you care about your customers. I would definitely recommend Stratos & have already done so.

5 1 5 04/11/2020

This experienced exceeded my expectations in every way. The booking process, follow up, attention to detail, urgency and ease of communication were all excellent. The pilots were friendly, prepared, professional and prompt. The plane exactly as described and needed. I will definitely use this service again.

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 12/16/2018

Sherman is a great pilot and so was his co-pilot. Looking forward to many future endeavors.

5 1 5 09/17/2021

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.

5 1 5 02/18/2019

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

5 1 5 02/20/2021

Would recommend. I gave them a 5 star rating.

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

You guys are great to work with!

5 1 5 12/17/2016

This charter was a wonderful experience, from Will's handling of details at Stratos to a great piece of equipment and a top notch crew. I can't speak highly enough of Leo and Craig. I have spent a lot of time on mid-size aircraft, and this crew would rate at the very top of all I've met. Please extend our sincere thanks to Will, Leo, and Craig.

5 1 5 04/03/2018

Everything worked out great. Working with Stratos was seamless. When the Trump TFR foiled our plans on both the outbound and inbound legs, Stratos was proactive in finding the best solution for us and minimized the disruption to the timing of our itinerary while also remaining flexible to our schedule as well. Joel could not have been easier to work with, finding us the best options at the best prices.

5 1 5 03/14/2021

We just completed a move from California to Hawaii with our dog a lot of our stuff which we would need until our mean shipment of household goods arrives in 10 days. Randy was able to secure the perfect your craft for people pets and stuff. Pilots were great. Aircraft was comfortable and a great easy ride.

5 1 5 08/16/2017

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

5 1 5 01/04/2024

Wonderful experience with a highly professional crew!

5 1 5 05/20/2020

Great experience.

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 03/08/2020

Joel and his team did a great job as always!!

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 02/15/2021

We enjoyed flying with Stratos jet perfect service big thank you to Glenn, very responsive very customer oriented

5 1 5 09/17/2021

Other than car rental issue it was great.

5 1 5 06/29/2018

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 10/28/2020

Hassle free travel! Everyone is helpful an kind.

5 1 5 06/28/2013

You did a superb job, and the crew was first rate.  We will be back.

5 1 5 12/15/2023

Anthony is the best. It's always hectic trying to get the details right and he stays on top of it so I don't have to!

5 1 5 07/21/2019

I worked with Kimberly from Stratos Jet Charters. She was very enthusiastic and helpful. In fact because of her enthusiasm and helpfulness, I chose Stratos over a another company that gave me a slightly lower quote. She answered all my questions and did her best to meet all my requests. The flight was excellent, plane was comfortable and the pilots were very helpful and professional. There was a bit of miscommunication about the hours of customs at my home airport .. and lead to a bit of confusion about the return departure time. Ice for beverages had melted on the first leg, and not all the drinks were stocked according to what was promised. My requests were fulfilled however for the return flight. I'm a coffee drinker, coffee was well stocked, but very little cream available, kinda curdled!!. These are tiny details but better supply of online refreshments would have made the flight perfect!! Beautiful views, no delays, smooth landings, and comfortable seats and lav. Beautiful shiny, clean plane. . the CJ3. Had a great time!

5 1 5 07/03/2019

Good experience, although your emails sometimes look more as a marketing email than an itinerary revision. Still getting used to the sales force platform, but if I may give you guys a feed back, try to avoid too many colors and pictures on the email as they sometimes look like marketing/sales email then important information about the trip. That's my 2 cents.

5 1 5 04/24/2019

Another great experience with Joel & his team. From rental car arrangements to being ready for three small children Stratos handled everything. The equipment was beautiful and the crews were very kind! I never can say enough praise for Stratos!

5 1 5 01/01/2022

Great customer service!

5 1 5 07/31/2023

Eastern Air Services (crew and plane) were wonderful. Stratos micro obsession with baggage and weights was beyond logical and anything that I had ever experienced in prior charters. Turned out there was PLENTY of room in cargo for additional baggage and that my guests were no where near any weight limitation. The only reason I tolerated the craziness was the price differential. Next time, if they are not the best price I am going back to my regular charter companies. ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Good Morning Gail,
Thank you for taking the time to raise the issue of our team's insistence on passenger and baggage weight.  I share in the blame as I am a pilot (I fly a Pilatus PC12 and Beechcraft Bonanza for my family).  Understanding the performance limitations of an older King Air, the relatively short runway of 5000' at Wildwood and warm summer temperatures, we like to air on the side of caution.  Please know that I have developed processes at Stratos to ensure that every flight we organize is arranged exactly as I would for my own family's travels.  Safety First.
I hope that while these requests were a bit cumbersome, you see that it was done with the best intentions for the safety of your flight and I certainly hope that going forward, Stratos can earn the opportunity to serve you based on our commitment to excellence rather than a cost comparison.
Sincerely,
   
Joel A. Thomas - Get to know Joel
President and CEO

Would definitely recommend Statos Jets. Always know Kerry Hill is doing her best for us.

5 1 5 02/24/2021

Everyone was great, from Steve who got us started, to the flight support team, and to the crew. Everything went smoothly and I'd highly recommend Stratos to anyone looking to charter a flight.

5 1 5 03/30/2022

I feel very confident that Kerry Hill and her team will take excellent care of the trip that we plan. It was a great experience everyone was pleased with the outcome. I would recommend Stratos to anyone looking for Charter service

5 1 5 02/23/2020

Easy booking/cost effective/always takes care of all problems

5 1 5 06/07/2016

Nothing, Heather is amazing as always and the reason I will continue to fly with you.

5 1 5 05/09/2017

Having used many charter companies before with mixed experiences, I can say with confidence that Stratos has the best service and highest level of professionalism of any of the charter services I have encountered. Most recently, we had an unfortunate last minute cancellation of a charter booked through another service, and Stratos came through at the last minute to find the right plane at the right price for us with under 24 hour notice. I cannot thank them enough for their professionalism as well as their willingness and ability to go above and beyond to find the right charter for us - even as a first time customer.

5 1 5 06/12/2021

We needed to book a same-day plane for employees and tools to provide urgent assistance to a customer. Zach was effective, proactive and cooperative in providing a solution, precise information and updates. Would recommend Stratos Jet anytime! Thank you!

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 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 05/27/2014

lower cost flights :)

5 1 5 09/17/2020

Smooth and easy

5 1 5 12/30/2020

We had another great trip with Stratos. Booking was very helpful and provided us with a beautiful aircraft. The pilots were great and flight attendant was wonderful. We thoroughly enjoyed the trip. Thank you!

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 07/31/2023

Danny, my Stratos Rep, was in contact with me on a regular basis. The rest of his team provided excellent support to ensure there weren’t any issues. The entire experience was better than my highest expectations. I’m already planning my next trip.

5 1 5 07/31/2023

Yes to all.

5 1 5 11/13/2013

None. It was great. Had to go for a medical problem with my dad and Ricky was absolutely tremendous. I can't say enough good about him and how he handled things in a very difficult situation. the flight was awesome too. If I CAN ever justify the cost of flying private again like that Ricky and / or your company will get a call. Thanks so much.

5 1 5 10/20/2020

Yes

5 1 5 06/23/2021

Great setbicr

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 12/21/2021

The level of service provided by Stratos is very high. Glenn and team continue to listen and understand our needs and organize excellent service. The latest provider was the best so far. Thank you team.

Stratus extremely professional company.

  • How do I choose the right aircraft for my mission?

    dropdown dropdown

    As charter brokers, we do more than simply book your charter flight. At Stratos Jets, our air charter associates are highly trained personnel capable of matching our clients with the appropriate aircraft for their travel needs. Once we determine how many passengers you’re travelling with and how far you’re flying, we can determine which category of aircraft you require. There are many options available. The most common aircrafts hired for private charters include:

    • Cessna’s Citation X
    • Gulfstream’s G650
    • Bombardier’s Global line

    After that, we can help you narrow down the selection of recommended aircraft based on budget, desired cabin amenities, airport requirements, luggage capacity, as well as aircraft age and performance capabilities.

    Staying Safe in the Skies

    At Stratos Jets, air charter safety is our number one concern. One of our key policies is to increase consumer education. This ensures our clients are able to make informed decisions. We also work with our aircraft providers to ensure their safety training programs meet and even exceed our air charter safety requirements. To make this happen, Stratos Jets is an ARGUS Certified Broker. This means that our brokerage firm is:

    • Committed to the best industry practices
    • Adhering to all applicable safety regulations
    • Maintaining the appropriate insurance coverage required
  • Are there additional costs per private jet rental passenger?

    dropdown dropdown

    There are no additional costs per passenger. At Stratos Jet Charters, we base our private jet rental prices per hour, not per guest.

    The Stratos Pricing Estimator

    If you would like to estimate the cost of a private jet charter, use our Stratos pricing estimator page. It lists the most common estimates based on destination and aircraft type. And you can always enter customized data to get an estimate for a specific destination.

    Additional Concierge Charges

    We do charge for some of our additional concierge services, such as in-flight catering and entertainment, hotel bookings and ground transportation. We know our clients’ time is precious, so we offer the value and convenience of “one-stop-shopping” through our Trip Support team. When you book a flight with Stratos Jet Charters, we can take care of all the logistics, including booking hotels, meeting spaces, limousines and tickets to special events. That way you can relax, and enjoy your trip.

    Empty Leg Charters

    Also, since we charge per hour, not per passenger, there are travel bargains to be found with our Empty Leg Flights. Many of our private jet rental flights are one-way, and then we need to move the aircraft to a new destination. To reduce the costs of flying an empty aircraft, we offer discounts to travelers with flexible itineraries. Clever passengers will sometimes split the cost with their fellow travelers, thereby reducing the cost for everyone on the flight.  

  • Can I make last-minute changes to my itinerary?

    dropdown dropdown

    If your plans need to change, we will do everything in our power to accommodate the changes. One of the benefits of hiring Stratos Jet Charters is that we have much more flexibility than commercial airlines and can provide many more air charter services.

    We have two teams that can help you. Here is a brief description of each:

    Charter Sales Agents 

    This is the initial contact team. They evaluate your travel needs to identify the appropriate aircraft type for your travel plan. Pricing is determined by aircraft availability, its position related to the intended departure location and the position of where the aircraft needs to be after performing the customer’s flight.   

    Trip Support Team

    Once the aircraft has been selected, Trip Support works with the customer, the air carrier and all concierge service providers to organize all of the travel details. Trip Support is responsible for coordinating:

    • Departure time
    • Departure and arrival at the Fixed Base departure location
    • Ensuring assigned crew members meet Stratos experience requirements
    • Making sure the insurance is current and everyone is protected
    • Coordinating all concierge services

    In reference to last-minute itinerary changes, any changes would go through the Trip Support Team.

    Our customers often have demanding flight itineraries that can change quickly. They’ve come to appreciate knowing there’s an entire team of people focused on organizing all the details of their trip. Stratos Jet Charters wants to provide our clients with consistently outstanding air charter service and an impeccable safety record.
