The advent of Very Light Jets (such as the Eclipse 500) will usher in a new era of air taxi service. Whether Dayjet's business model or Pogo's or yet another turns out to be the most successful is yet to be seen. What is clear is that when air taxi service costs fall to anything close to domestic First Class fares, the US legacy carriers will fondly remember the easy times they had 2002-2005.

Im sure they will I have seen people climb into pipers that were being used for charter. One time a man and his family piled up into a Malibu, they had enough baggage to fill the baggage compartment of a gulfstream.  eyepopping 


Airplanes are only as good as the people who fly&fix them.

I've seen pax that are afraid of small jets (beechjets, CJ1s etc.) and pax that will climb into a new Beechjet or similar but won't get into a 15 year old HS-800XP.

One thing the planes have going for them in the don't-freak-passengers-out respect is the 'gee-wiz' factor of the glass cockpit. Passengers just eat that crap up. 'Ooooohhhh look at the pretty display, this airplane is a lot more modern than the one on the other end of the hangar...' Yeah, well, whatever.

Dayjet.com The New Way Of Corporate Travel?

CORPORATE travel? I think not. These aircraft can have a role in the traditional corporate flight department, but I do not think they will 'revolutionize' such departments. The first generation of VLJs won't have the bells and whistles that make a 'full size' (for lack of a better term) biz jet so advantageous.

As Zvezda hinted to, these planes will have a much bigger impact on individuals and (very) small groups that want to travel in a convenient/comfortable manner.

I read an article in Business and Commercial Aviation News about DayJet. The founder kind of hinted toward the usual jet job minimums...ie: 1000TT and probably 200 multi TT.

All the VLJs are planned to be rated for single-pilot operation.

Insurance and safety purposes pretty much rule out single pilot charter operation in the immediate future, which is too bad, b/c I think the concept would be a whole lot more economically viable if they could cut out that expense.
