There are not enough words to express how incredible Stratos is. From start to finish, my experiences with them are the highest quality of service and performance.

Incredibly responsive, great service, sourced a great plane, would definitely recommend to friends.
on the way down, the pilot was nervous, which made a couple of my guests worry...
Thank you for making our jobs easier! Great passengers and your team is always a pleasure to work with! Kind regards, Kim Krum
Steve Stogner set everything up perfectly. The crew PIC:Sean Jensen and SIC: Paul Theriot were the absolute best. If you want the best experience ever, request this crew. Made everything, from arriving at the airport to departing the destination airport a wonderful experience. Moser Aviation must be an up and coming company, as they sure hire great people
our experience was excellent
Very Professional! Top notch aircraft and crew. Will certainly be using Stratos in the future!!
Nothing. Meagan Brower was outstanding! She was very informative and kept me updated on every aspect of the trip
Joel and his team fire on all cylinders at all times. Every detail of the trip is always handled and communication is very proactive. We have special requests all of the time from exact wheels up times to ground transport changes and the team handles our trip with ease. I cannot recommend the Stratos Team enough and the value you get far exceeds our past charter and membership experiences. Thank you again Stratos Team
We had a great experience thanks to the help of stratos. I will use them again as they were professional and very timely.
Glenn was wonderful, the jet was clean and the crew was fantastic.
Just wanted to say that the way you guys relay information is perfect. I've never seen it from any other broker
Great experience all around. simon was great - awesome customer service mentality and communication throughout.
No complaints. Thank you for your help. Art
Always a pleasure to work with you all. Please let me know about the app you've developed. Thanks, Joel. Sincerely, Joe Stephenson Merlin One
I have worked with quite a few different charter companies over the years and Stratos Jets has been the easiest to work with. I always work with Kerry Hill because she very professional, friendly, and is just down right awesome at her job. I often need last minute trips for my boss and she always gets back to me quickly regardless of what time of day it is. I truely feel she goes above and beyond to make sure every aspect of the trip runs smoothly and everyone is happy. I can't say enough about how much stress is taken out of booking these flights because I know Stratos and Kerry have everything I need covered.
As a several time repeat customer, I highly recommend Stratos!
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.
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
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!!
Everyone was great
Kim was such a pleasure to work with and always kept in contact with us whenever there was a change or new request. She was professional and courteous, I look forward to working with her in the future if Stratos chooses to book from our fleet again :)
Joel & His team are incredible! After many charters with Stratos they continue to impress. Joel personally met us at the aircraft, a beautiful Challenger, and ensured everything was perfect. The crew and plane were perfect and it was a perfect way to end our vacation. His crew always keeps our family's concerns first & foremost. Thank you again Stratos!
couldn't get better than this, amazingly efficient and helpful
Smooth, calm, on time and will use it again
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.
Always a pleasure. Happy Thanksgiving.
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.
Booking was easy, you made thr whole experience easy.
Great service! Anne and I will contact you, probably in mid-January about our next trip to Florida. Thanks and have a good evening.
As always, Joel and his team made this a seamless trip. We enjoyed every moment from booking to take off and landing and everything in between. Thank you!
Zak did a great job of meeting our needs and making it easy to respond to any issues. Would definitely recommend.
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.
Stratos arranged a private jet to Toronto for me last minute. Everything went well and the Challenger 300 was very nice. Thank you
My experience with Joel and his team a Stratos was great! We had a little wrinkle in our trip when we were diverted from our destination to another airport. It had nothing to do with our flight. There was a disabled plan on the runway. We diverted to the other airport and waited briefly for word on when it would clear. Joel and his team were all over it. They had alternate transportation lined up for us, which, we didn't end up using and ultimately got back on the plane and went to our intended destination. There were no extra charges and we only lost about an hour. Our return trip was fast and uneventful. Stratos helped us find the right plane for our trip and kept us within our budget. Thanks Joel and team!
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 !!
Yes i will recommend it
Great service. Responsive and thorough.
Its always a pleasure to work with Mark and Stratos!
Competitive pricing and unbelievable customer service, from inquiry to post flight. They make it happen and make it easy. I will not competitive shop again because I have found the best price and service with Stratos.
Working together with Stratosjets felt like working with my own team - very friendly and coorperative employees - loyal and trustworthy team - thanks a lot!
Everything was above and beyond. Thank you!
This was our first experience chartering a jet, and it was wonderful! I reached out to 40 private jet companies. We chose Stratos because Daniel went above and beyond from day one. He was incredibly responsive and knowledgeable about the aircraft. We weren't even sure what we were asking for in the beginning. We just had a checklist we were looking for. Daniel took this and helped us find the perfect aircraft for the trip. Daniel over-communicated and helped all along the way. The trip was so smooth. I can't recommend Stratos (and Daniel) enough. Thank you for such a wonderful and stress-free experience!
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!
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!
Joel and his team at Stratos provided outstanding service during a time when air travel was challenging. In March 2020, Stratos was able to source an aircraft for my family with 24 hours notice. More importantly, when that aircraft arrived with a maintenance issue that occurred on landing, Joel and his team worked diligently to find us another aircraft within a few hours. He and his team went above an beyond to help us out. We highly recommend Stratos.
Glenn like usual is great to work with and is always on top of it.
