Story from Avweb below. In Florida Dayjets is similar to Linear Air in Bedford. Do you remember Pogo Airlines a few years back that made a commitment to Westfield? They have gone nowhere. I hope we are in constant communications with William Herp at Linear Air, I strongly believe that the VLJ's like the ones from Eclipse that are going to Dayjets and Linear will be huge in the aviaition business.

Bolstered by a $50 million infusion of new funding, DayJet said this week it expects to start offering air-taxi jet service in five Florida cities by the end of June. “This funding is the keystone to the operational launch of our ‘Per-Seat, On-Demand’ jet service,” said Ed Iacobucci, president and CEO of DayJet. “With the necessary capital now in place, we are just months away from delivering regional business travelers something they have never had -- accessible and affordable mobility between difficult-to-reach regional destinations.” The infusion of cash means that construction of DayJet's facilities at Tallahassee Regional Airport's Flightline Aviation will begin within the next 30 days, the Tallahassee Democrat reported Wednesday. The on-demand, per-seat operator’s reservation system will be online within the next 30 days, and DayJet’s fleet of Eclipse 500 jets should start arriving about that same time, according to company COO John Staten.
