Air-taxi operators employing technically advanced aircraft (TAA) and very light jets (VLJs) are upbeat about their futures, even in the face of DayJet’s demise. Speaking at a TAA/VLJ Air Taxi conference during the NBAA Convention last month, Air Taxi Association president Joe Leader said that worldwide demand is increasing for air taxis, which he defined as “more affordable on-demand transportation” than traditional aircraft charter. SATSair CEO Steve Hanvey agreed, saying there is “enormous demand” to be tapped by air taxis.
