DayJet founder Ed Iacobucci died last Friday after a 16-month battle with pancreatic cancer. After he left Citrix Systems, the software maker that he co-founded, in the early 2000s, Iacobucci started laying the groundwork for per-seat, on-demand charter operator DayJet and placed an order for 239 Eclipse 500s in May 2005. DayJet started operations in October 2007 but ceased flying 11 months later. While DayJet is no longer, the Astro software Iacobucci developed to optimize the company’s flights in real-time still lives on and is being licensed to aircraft fleet operators by Seattle-based BoldIQ.
