Calling All Road Runners

The first New York City Marathon was held in 1970 in Central Park, NY.

127 runners registered, only one of which was female, and only 55 entrants crossed the finish line. The registration fee was $1 and participants were given used baseball and bowling trophies for their efforts.

A few years later, the marathon expanded and took to the streets of NYC. This newly updated race crossed five bridges and five boroughs.

Since its inception, the marathon has always represented community spirit and strength; however, the 2001 race evolved into a symbol of hope. Only a few short months after the September 11 terrorist attacks, runners and spectators eager to move beyond the tragedy viewed the marathon with a sense of renewed hope and pride.

Getting to the Races

Last year’s race had more than 51,000 finishers, making it one of the largest marathons in the history of the event. With this year’s event coming up, plans to accommodate even more participants are underway.

If you plan to charter flights to the New York City Marathon to either participate in or witness the race, plan to arrive at least a week early. There are some pretty fantastic events taking place prior to the event, like:

  • Poland Spring Marathon Kickoff (5M)
  • TCS New York City Marathon Expo
  • Opening Ceremony
  • Abbott Dash to the Finish Line 5K

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 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 03/23/2022

Start to finish the team was very professional.

5 1 5 08/16/2017

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

5 1 5 03/01/2017

Great service. Responsive and thorough.

5 1 5 03/01/2018

Wonderful! Plan to do it again. My wife and I had no idea that such a level of GREAT service was available.

5 1 5 09/17/2020

Kyle was very nice and helpful, he made sure everything was in order and ready to go from beginning to end, really great costumer service. Aircraft was nice, well kept LearJet 40. Pilots Matthew and Jonathan were total sweethearts and very experienced, landing was beyond smooth. Only thing we weren’t so happy about was the fact that you could see some of the wear and tear of the years on the inside of the plane. Overall great experience!

5 1 5 10/09/2020

All aspects pf the trip were easy and very worthwhile!!

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

Our company attempted for 2 days to secure a private jet for our business trip out of Tucson, AZ to Ban Nuys, CA. Then I contacted Stratos Jet. Within hours Stratos Jet accomplished what all the other private jet charters failed to do. We will now always start with Stratos Jets before wasting time with their competitors. Stratos Jet went ABOVE & BEYOND in their customer service & professionalism. And that 1st class treatment of service continued thru all phases of our business trip from start to return.

5 1 5 07/24/2017

The Stratos Jet Charter team provides a seamless & top notch experience from beginning to end. They are a forward thinking company that puts the customer first and never disappoints with any trip or itinerary. I recently booked a short flight from Orlando to Boca Raton on a Falcon 2000EX and could not have been happier with the service and attention to detail that was provided for my wife, myself and the rest of our companions. Would absolutely recommend to anyone!

5 1 5 03/31/2019

Glenn,
The trips, one to Iowa & the other back to Dulles, went great. 
Everyone did great jobs & made me & my 94 year old Mom feel comfortable & taken care of. 
Glenn & Rachel were especially helpful. 
I would use your service again and will let Glenn know about my next trip. 
Thanks to you, Glenn, Rachel and the very nice/competent pilots.  Ground staff were great too. 
Thank you.

5 1 5 03/02/2017

Everything was first class even though we not only left one of our bags on the plane but lost a wallet on the return trip (not on the plane), Matt Machokas was very helpful in assisting us in helping to resolve our problems. All pilots were great. Matt also arranged a flight for us because of a date issue I made with the return flight. He assisted in finding another plane to be sent so that we did not have to wait another day.

5 1 5 02/26/2018

Pre trip work up seemed very professional. Crew had plane positioned on time and assisted with loading. Just my wife and I and two dogs. It was the dogs first flight so we had some concerns but the crew did a great job in getting them aboard and settled down. flight was uneventful and all worked as planned. No issues at all. Very good

Same on return flight except we arrived a good half hour early but crew jumped to task and loaded us and dogs promptly for return. Only item worth mentioning was during climb out to altitude both my wife and I heard numerous bumping sound on both sides of fuselage up and down the sides and top. We have owned our own planes and owned shares in jets through Flight Options and chartered often over the years and we have never had this type of noise. It almost sounded like rivets coming out or random bird strikes (which I knew it was not). I mentioned it to the co-pilot and he told me to report it so maintenance could be sure to check it out. Said it may be a maintenance issue on an older aircraft but a first for me. After attaining altitude the noise did not reoccur. All else went according to schedule and the pilots were very professional and assisted on and off with dogs and luggage. I would use again this service. Thank

Joel Thomas:  Hi William!  Thanks for the opportunity to serve you and your wife.  We are always grateful when our clients take the time to offer feedback.  We reached out to Chief Pilot of the air carrier you flew with regarding the noise you mentioned and here is what they said:  "Frequently you'll hear noises that sound like that and its just the airplane expanding as altitude, temperature and humidity change.  Its actually very common."  Looking forward to working with you all again soon!  All my best

5 1 5 04/30/2018

Yes very

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 10/15/2021

Top notch experience, pilot was amazing, plane was great, service was phenomenal. No complaints at all.

5 1 5 08/12/2020

Let me just add K___ and my thanks for a perfect flight.  Great crew, great plane and and wonderful flight. Doesn't get any better.

5 1 5 07/03/2019

We truly value our relationship with Stratos Jets and appreciate their business. They are organized and communicate well making sure all of the trips we do together happen seamlessly. We look forward to a long lasting relationship, thank you again for selecting our team and aircraft for your clients!

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 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 10/31/2022

Everything was great with the trip; it was a bit rushed on my part and Danny was a rockstar! He gave me many options and honest and frank feedback and advice. He made me feel like I was the only client he had and was incredibly responsive to all my questions and concerns. Stress-free and relaxing is the best way to summarize my experience. I will always use Stratos and Danny!! thank you to all the team as well!

5 1 5 07/21/2022

Kerry was absolutely amazing!! She made the entire process very seamless and so easy for me. Made me look very good to my boss. She kept me informed of the entire trip, from the plane arriving at the airport to wheels down at the final destination. I have nothing but extreme praise for Kerry and her customer service.

5 1 5 09/19/2018

My boss recently travelled to Europe for the entire month of August. During that time his jet had mechanical issues and could no longer fly where he wanted. He had about 12 flights left in his trip around Europe and Stratos Jet Charters, especially Heather Latch, saved our lives. They were able to accommodate 90% of the trips he wanted at the time he wanted. She really was a life saver for myself and my boss. I will definitely use Stratos Jets again and work with Heather any day of the week! They are magnificent!!

5 1 5 05/10/2013

Ricky was wonderful to work with and answered all our many questions!

5 1 5 03/04/2016

We were thoroughly impressed with all aspects of these operations. If at all possible, a method to protect the identity of passengers might be developed (whereby TSA rules are still met). If such a method already exists, my clients would appreciate knowing the details.

5 1 5 09/17/2021

The flight was smooth and comfortable The crew was professional and courteous. The agent's support was extremely professional--assisting above and beyond expectations with car shuttling service in Albany. We will highly recommend these services to others.

5 1 5 04/15/2024

Very good communication and timely responses for flight details. We work with alot of brokers and your level of expertise and communication is a breath of fresh air from what we typically see. Thank you again for your business and we hope to continue our relationship with your organization! JR

Good morning, Joel.  I have been in the customer service business for 30 years as a realtor and previously customer service manager for a performing arts hall.  I am very critical when it comes to customer service as so many companies who pride themselves being excellent fall short.  I feel when it excels, it should be pointed out to their superior.

Falling short is certainly not the case with Kyle Jones and Leslie Jackson.  This is my first experience with chartering a private plane.  My 94 year old father and 92 year old mother are going to their favorite place in the world, the Beau Rivage hotel in Biloxi MS at Christmas time.  A charter flight works so much better than the hassle of traveling commercial today.

Kyle was on top of everything for me and when I would send him a question via email the response was rapid fire.  The same goes for Leslie.  I don’t think it was more than 5 minutes before a response came back.  Their friendliness, professionalism and knowledge is above par and you are extremely lucky to have them on the Stratos team.

My father insists he will be going again next year and I hope he is correct.  I will contact Stratos for their traveling needs and hopefully work with both the wonderful Kyle and Leslie again.

Merry Christmas to you and your family and a happy New Year.

Laura

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

5 1 5 04/28/2017

Joel and Stratosjets made my last minute flight to the Masters possible. Price was competitive and services was second to none.  Joel and his team responded to each call and SMS in a matter of seconds.  They took care of every detail from flight, to transport and everything in between.

5 1 5 11/06/2023

Once again the whole experience was great from start to finish. I felt well taken care of.

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 10/24/2023

Cannot recommend Stratos strongly enough. Our pilots were superb. They dropped us into 07FA onto a wet runway that a lot of pilots would have diverted for but the new grooved runway and pilot skill had us safely on the ground and taxiing after using way less than half the runway. The Citation Sovereign was in tip top condition. We will definitely use Stratos again.

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 03/20/2020

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 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 03/01/2018

Joel was great to arrange a flight for us last minute. He kept me updated through the process/flights. We would love to work with Stratos again.

5 1 5 03/01/2020

The experience was perfect throughout from initial contact through final payment. Our flight was a last minute family emergency and the folks at Stratos Jets made every effort to get me and my family home as quickly and safely as possible. I cannot thanks them enough for caring about our situation.

5 1 5 07/14/2020

All members of the team communicated extremely well. I worked with Steve to get my flight booked and he checked in with helpful texts and updates along the way. Highly recommend.

5 1 5 12/20/2019

We appreciated the trip you allowed us to fly. Everything went well on the trip and your customer enjoyed the flight on our King Air.

5 1 5 01/08/2023

Great

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 11/03/2020

I was helped at every step along the way. Any question was quickly answered.

5 1 5 11/22/2016

The Executive Car Service setup was a TOTAL disaster and almost ruined my trip. Chris Fink is awesome, but this man in Jersey was an absolute disgrace. Very disappointed with that firm. The crew stellar. Better than outstanding. I was blessed to have them transporting me on thus very important day trip. Chris' follow-up and communication was outstanding. He is Top-Notch.

5 1 5 07/31/2023

Daniel is professional and engaged throughout the entire trip. From booking to wheels down.

5 1 5 08/09/2013

our experience was excellent

5 1 5 07/13/2021

Everything from booking to flying to ground transport was taken care of. Stratos made our golf trip amazing!

  • 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.
