What pilots say

Our Testimonials

We have had a great relationship with Stratus Financial and excellent communication with Brandon and Cheryl who have answered all of our questions quickly, and thoroughly and have been a joy to work with. More importantly, now being able to offer Stratus Financial loan products to our potential customers has opened the door to aviation for future pilots who otherwise would not be able to achieve their dreams in aviation due to financial constraints, we have been very pleased with Stratus Financial.

Stratus Financial has given me the opportunity to fast-track a new career and ultimately achieve goals and make dreams come true. They were easy to work with, quick to communicate, and answered any questions I had along the way. My rep, Cherly, was on top of everything and in constant communication. Once my package was pre-approved and went to the underwriters I was able to get a final confirmation within 24 hours which was absolutely outstanding. All in subtracting the time I personally held up the entire process could have been complete in a week or less which was awesome. I highly recommend Stratus Financial to any future Airline Pilots.
I am very thankful to Stratus Financial because they helped my longtime dream of earning my pilot's license become reality. Because of their assistance and quick turnaround, I was able to start my training almost immediately. But it is really the small things they did and continue to do that make me feel they are truly invested in helping me reach my goal of becoming a pilot. They enrolled me in an online Ground School, GoldSeal and Sheppard Air, to ensure that I understand every lesson and pass my exams. And the "handwritten" notes to congratulate me for every stage I accomplish in my flight training have really meant a lot. Thank you Stratus Financial.
