Ring in the New Year

The flashing lights. The crowds of people. The iconic ball drop.

Located at One Times Square, the time ball is a prominent part of New Year’s Eve parties in Times Square and around the world. Commonly referred to as “the ball drop,” the ball descends 114 feet in the last minute of the year. This iconic ball drop signals the start to a new year and a fresh start for many people.

Initially, the ball was constructed using wood and iron and lit with 100 incandescent light bulbs. However, it’s been modified a few times since then. Most recently, the ball has been outfitted with a computerized LED system and an outer coating of triangular crystal panels.  These modifications have enhanced the iconic ball drop in a way that still gives people chills. It’s absolutely stunning.

Simon Crhistian did a great job.

5 1 5 04/14/2020

Everything was done in super fashion. Anthony the scheduler, Anthony and Terry the pilots were fantastic!

5 1 5 08/05/2012

Toilet paper, Pillows and blankets

5 1 5 10/31/2022

Good communication between Stratos and me regarding the jet being on site on ready for departure. Plenty of advance notice with the updates. This made my planning much easier.

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

5 1 5 06/20/2021

Probably the best charter experience I have ever had. Zach really came through for me when I was in a bind. Thanks Zach and keep up the good work.

5 1 5 12/21/2021

We had a great flight. I greatly appreciated Zach calling to let me know the address of the gate had changed. I did get an email with the update but it didn't show up in my inbox til I was driving to the airport. We had a great flight with no issues. The crew were very helpful when and if we had any questions.

5 1 5 05/17/2021

Yes, would recommend Stratos to anyone looking for a charter!

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 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 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 03/08/2020

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

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 01/01/2022

All aspects of our interaction with Stratos was perfect. My wife and I will definitely use their services in the future.

5 1 5 12/27/2016

As a several time repeat customer, I highly recommend Stratos!

5 1 5 12/21/2021

Never left a review in our life but for the amount of money spent - really left a sour taste in our mouth. Complete lack of organization with plane in wrong FBO for departure, $1,000 rental car at wrong airport on arrival, just not nearly the level of service expected when spending over $10K for an hour and half hop -

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 12/03/2019

Hey Wanted to let you know that your pilots were so thoughtful and attentive to my daughters needs yesterday.  They removed all unnecessary obstacles for her.  Thank you so much

5 1 5 12/09/2016

Our passengers wish to extend a sincere thanks to your staff. We however advise that you do not have permission to use Michael's name in their advertising or promotional material as to be endorsing your product. Thank you again. We look forward to working with you again in the near future.

5 1 5 05/23/2014

Nothing. Meagan Brower was outstanding! She was very informative and kept me updated on every aspect of the trip

5 1 5 10/24/2023

Danny was great to work with. Answered all my questions and made sure the process was smooth and experience was great.

5 1 5 06/28/2013

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

5 1 5 02/21/2022

Great platform, all trip information was readily accessible. Thank you for working with us on this one and keeping the itineraries flexible. No significant feedback otherwise, we look forward to the opportunity to assist with future operations!

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 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 02/20/2021

Smooth, calm, on time and will use it again

5 1 5 09/04/2023

Once again the whole experience was great. I was informed every step of the way. There were concerns from a big storm that was coming in. The Stratos team went above and beyond to make sure everything went as smoothly as possible and got me home safe. Anthony Angelini is the best.

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 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 05/03/2017

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

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 10/14/2014

You can not improve on perfect !!

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 03/24/2017

This survey reall doesn't apply to the use my company had with Stratos. We had to expedite a piece of equipment and a contractor to our facility to perform some emergency repairs. The process however did go well and the equipment and person arrived on time and the entire process was handled by Will Buckley in a very professional manner and was extremely helpful in making this adventure easy and convenient. He was great to work with and if the occasion should arise to use charter services again, we will contact you. thanks again

5 1 5 07/03/2019

Yes, was a smooth process

5 1 5 05/03/2021

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

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 09/18/2022

Flight was very nice. And the pilot, Scott Gustafson, was very professional and friendly. He did a great job with our luggage and talking about the plane and our flight. Great pilot.

5 1 5 03/13/2024

This was probably the 3rd flight that the weather conditions were disregarded and I was told the flight was safe and would be comfortable. While we did land safely, the known turbulence was so intense I left my seat at one point, was thrown from side to side (no vomit bags around) and I was needing to do every breathing technique known to keep myself calm and not hyperventilate. While the crew and all people involved are extremely professional, disregarding weather reports with a strong wind advisory is irresponsible not only for safety but for the customers comfort. I learned upon landing that other flights in that same airport had cancelled so why would mine fly even with the concern I expressed. Will the company lose money to reschedule? I will find it difficult to trust them in the future on any flight with weather advisories.

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 06/18/2020

Anthony was terrific, good clear quote information, helpful options and overall a very pleasant experience.

5 1 5 07/19/2017

The Stratos Jet Charters team provides a seamless & excellent experience from beginning to end. They are a forward thinking company that puts the customer first and never disappoints with any trip or itinerary. Would absolutely recommend to anyone!

5 1 5 07/09/2021

Easy to book with and were very accommodating with a last minute booking.

5 1 5 05/23/2021

Thanks for the great service again Kyle!

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 12/03/2017

I understand we have great alternative option for the operation of our company aircraft at this time. Our (company name removed for privacy) Japan President was very glad to use charter aircraft. Thank you 

5 1 5 07/31/2023

Ditto!

5 1 5 09/12/2013

awesome

5 1 5 06/15/2020

Thank you for using Business Jet Access, we appreciate your business and it was a pleasure working with the Stratos team. Information was provided in a timely manner and communication was clear. Thanks again and we look forward to future trips.

  • 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.
