DayJet at the end of its runway

James Fallows, who wrote the book on the air taxi movement, delivers a first-draft post mortem on DayJet, whose founder and CEO Ed Iacobucci I interviewed last year. Evidently, and sadly, it’s curtains for DayJet.

I’ll leave the industry analysis to James Fallows, who’s in a far better position to assess the financial and aeronautical factors. As for me, I’ll just thank Ed Iacobucci for pioneering two important new categories of software: the operating system for a peer-to-peer air travel network, and the simulator used to model regional transportation options and evaluate how best to grow that network.

I am certain that these innovations will flourish in one way or another, and I hope that Ed and his teams will be there when it happens.
