10 Days of Epic Rides

On August 14, 1938, the Jackpine Gypsies Motorcycle Club hosted the first rally. Since then, this annual event draws 500,000 riders to Sturgis each year. In 2015, attendance rose to more than 700,000 making it the biggest in this event’s history.

Originally, the focus of the rally was stunts and racing. But it evolved into something much more. In 1961, the rally expanded to include motocross races and The Hillclimb. Since then, more and more events have been added to ensure the rally offers something for everyone.

It's so easy to book and Anthony is amazing. No hiccups and always informative.

5 1 5 12/15/2020

The trip was excellent, the aircraft new, clean and confortable. The staff really did the best to make the best possible experience. Will definitely fly again with you

5 1 5 12/19/2023

I called my go to guy Anthony when another provider bailed the last second. He got me a plane ready to take off in two hours. Doesn't get any better than that!!

5 1 5 06/03/2021

Glenn and the team constantly exceed expectations. Nothing is too much bother. Every detail is taken care of. The crew and operators are always well briefed. Thanks team!

5 1 5 05/08/2020

After our flight, I sent an email to Joel Thomas (CEO) telling him about our experience. Joel called me last night to thank me for email. In part, my email to Joel said: Ernest Hemingway once said: "The best way to find out if you can trust somebody is to trust them". We trusted Stratos Jet Charters with our first charter flight, and the actions of all of your employees and contractors sustained our trust in Stratos. I told my wife when we were flying down: "Kyle (Jones) must sleep with his phone or computer on his pillow". It didn't matter when I called, texted, or emailed. Kyle always responded on a near immediate basis. Wow! Since this was our first charter, Kyle professionally and patiently walked us through the entire charter process with accurate, complete, and well-documented information. He seemed to always be a step ahead and in many, many cases, anticipated our questions and preemptively answered them. In a world where you hesitate to call a service provider or financial institution because you know you will be stuck on hold or in voicemail hell, it is indeed a breath of fresh air to find a company who communicates so very, very well and truly appears to care about their customers and the customer's experience with them. Most of my interaction was with Kyle Jones but I also had communications with Sandy Milam and she exhibited the same responsiveness as Kyle. The ground crews at Signature Flight Services at TEB and PBI were equally adept at continuing that service of excellence. Last but certainly not least, pilots Ernie Guido and Don Poskitt were the icing on the cake. As a former CEO of a professional services business, I know how important the client experience is and how communication is one of the very key components. I just wanted to be sure you heard about our experience from a very satisfied customer. Kudos to you and your staff.

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 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 05/03/2021

Randy was so helpful during my scheduling of this trip and kept me informed. I will recommend Randy to all of our associates. Thank you for your service

5 1 5 05/04/2023

Excellent

5 1 5 03/21/2023

I love the team and especially working with Kerry. Always a pleasure

5 1 5 01/27/2021

Incredibly responsive, great service, sourced a great plane, would definitely recommend to friends.

5 1 5 06/28/2013

Garrett did a great job once again. He ALWAYS responds quickly and you can tell he really wants to please. He tried very hard to get us overflight permission and this time he was not able to but I knew that he tried hard. We had the same flight crew as we had last time and we really like them. They are very professional and very friendly.

5 1 5 07/12/2013

We had quite a number of issues booking this trip, which resulted in add'l work and follow up for me. As broker these issues should have been handled / caught prior to making a proposal. I believe I had to sign 4 different revised quote sheets for this trip! Also the final signed sheet stated we would land in LFMD on the return leg. Hence we booked transportation for pick up at LFMD. However flight landed in LFMN. This caused add'l stress and expense for no reason. I have only now seen that the last itinerary link showed an arrival at LFMN - but I never opened this one since all previous ones, including the contract reconfirmation showed LFMD. As for the aircraft itself: it was one of the oldest ones I have ever flown. The door / separation to the toilet / luggage area was broken (not the lock but the entire frame!) and the toilet was not accessible due to a lot of "stuff" (amenities, water bottles, etc.) being thrown in / stored in the area. Overall cleanliness was not superb either. Finally, the catering we requested was not available / not complete. Breakfast (eggwhite and sausage!!) was cold and wet and the fruitplatter had molded grapes; no ice bucket, nor champagne glasses were present. On the return leg, fruitplatter was nice but again no ice bucket nor champagne glasses were present. As a matter of fact, the soft drink container was not even replenished w new ice!! So overall - yes, we flew from A to B but the service experience was disappointing.

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 09/22/2021

Especially impressed that you were able to find us a rental car when there were none available in the entire area. You guys are wizards. The flight was comfortable and the pilots competent and professional. Thank you for helping us make this trip happen.

5 1 5 05/25/2017

Fantastic Plane and service! Joel & his crew are great and take care of every detail. If you are looking for a great charter partner Stratos is your one stop shop.

5 1 5 04/13/2017

We love Joel!

5 1 5 10/24/2023

Everything was as expected.

5 1 5 03/22/2023

Excellent service on very short notice! Since I was stranded at the Orlando Airport, Anthony got me out of bind of trying to get back home with impending work commitments. Good aircraft and crew....very smooth ride from Orlando to Jackson, MS. Stratos did a great job!

5 1 5 07/24/2020

Randy Schuette answered all of my questions and kept me up to date even with the early arrival of my flight which kept my trip on time.  The flight was smooth with a great landing by pilot Mariah Fever!

Thank you,

Karen W.

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 09/02/2020

Perfect experience.

5 1 5 01/01/2022

Our original plane had maintenance issues and we were upgraded to the only plane available. It was such a beautiful ride, we upgraded for our return trip. Everyone at Stratos is professional, customer oriented and a pleasure to deal with. I will continue to use their service.

5 1 5 11/26/2016

Its always a pleasure to work with Mark and Stratos!

5 1 5 02/21/2022

Great partnership and always a pleasure working with your team! We are all looking forward to many more.

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 01/02/2021

All items of booking, plane flight, pilots and limo pick up were great Anthony was the best to deal with; lots of communication in every part of process. Will be returning with you in May. Would also recommend to friends and colleagues 

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 05/05/2021

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

5 1 5 10/25/2017

Good communication

5 1 5 07/25/2013

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 02/17/2018

Two thumbs up!

5 1 5 01/20/2022

Worked with Glenn and he really worked to find the right plane at the right time! Aircraft crew were professional and courteous. Two great cross country flights.

5 1 5 05/05/2021

Your team was easy to work with and the clients were great. We look forward to working with you again. our trip # was Z0HQZZ

5 1 5 03/13/2015

It was excellent in every respect

5 1 5 05/12/2021

Great service, great aircraft, fantastic experience.

5 1 5 07/09/2021

Yes, will highly recommend and will use your service again. The captain and co pilot were friendly and helpful. They did an excellent job getting us to Chicago and back to Virginia home safely. Frank did an excellent job answering all my questions and kept me up dated on everything. Thank you again, Kathleen L.

5 1 5 03/20/2020

Glenn was a fantastic resource who provided a comprehensive set of alternatives options, and was very proactive from the booking time to wheels down on arrival, very impressed

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 02/01/2017

I wasn’t able to do the survey that is being done by google as I don’t have a google email and don’t want to set up another email account to be spammed to death. However, if I could have done the survey, I would have given Stratos Jets very high remarks and the reason would be because of the dealings I have with Kerry Hill.  As I believe I told you when we met at the S&D last year, Kerry is the best and most considerate person I have ever dealt with from a Charter company.  Not only her flight following in which she keeps me posted on everything from beginning to end but also her attention to all the other details for the reservation such as needs of transportation for passengers, insuring that the catering is ordered and delivered.  She takes a lot of the weight and stress of my shoulders.  If ever I have a question, she is quick to get me the answers I need. In my opinion, she is a very valuable asset to your company.

5 1 5 08/02/2021

Anthony took care of us from the get go and then checked with us throughout the process. Within minutes of requesting info I got a call. Great customer service, great jets, and great value. Go with Stratos you won't be disappointed!

5 1 5 01/29/2019

Thanks for everything Joel... You made the booking process quite easy and were very patient in explaining everything. I appreciate all your help and I will definitely pass your contact information to all my co-workers in case they ever have a request for a jet booking.

5 1 5 01/12/2021

One of the more detail oriented, organized brokers and brokerages to work with. Didn't matter who I coordinated with, between broker and trip support personnel, they treated us with respect and professionalism each and every single time. Looking forward to welcoming your clients on board again soon!

5 1 5 01/08/2023

Great

5 1 5 03/22/2021

It’s always a pleasure working with Stratos jets! Your team always seems to be on top of everything. Thanks again for another smooth trip.

5 1 5 03/21/2020

The experience was first class , the booking was very easy , everything was extremely well handled, would recommend this to anyone [who can afford it], flight was smooth as silk, excellent comfort ,everyone was extremely helpful, beyond my expectations,.... would love to travel like that all the time [I wish]!! Thanks for an experience to remember!!

5 1 5 05/01/2018

Yes i will recommend it

5 1 5 04/30/2018

Yes very

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 05/04/2020

We were very disappointed in the catering service. The lobster was undercooked and the sevruga caviar we ordered turned out to be lumpfish. Which we did not eat. We intended to take all the food to our home with the lobster, which we were going to cook to make it suitable to eat, but when we arrived home discovered that our food had not been unloaded from the plane. The only thing we ate on the plane was a small piece of the lobster.

  • 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.
