Is Now The Time For Air Taxis?
While the crack-down on
carry-on luggage continues, and commercial air passengers stand in
longer and longer lines to check their luggage... more and more
people are turning to private aviation for their transportation
Charter services report an increase of up to 60-percent in their
business. But another branch of the business aviation sector is
taking off as well -- the air taxi service. It offers many of the
same conveniences as air charter... but at lower costs.
This is what NASA and the FAA envision when they preach the
concept of a Small Aircraft Transportation System... SATS. Well,
meet SATS-Air chief Steve Hanvey -- only in this case, SATS stands
for Smart Air Travel Solutions.
This feature is in addition to our daily news briefing --
available in either a quick "Touch And Go" format, or an expanded
Aero-Briefing -- where you'll hear these stories:
...Another arrest in the British air terror case...as
airports in the UK continue to struggle under new security
...Some British airlines may demand compensation for the
...And the aviation tie-in to the biggest consumer
electronics recall in US history....

Our DAILY programs consist of (at least) three separate
- ANN's Daily 'Touch & Go' Aero-Cast: A
quick look at the most recent news of the day... short, succinct
and to the point. The usual 'Touch & Go' takes but a few
minutes and is a summary, only, of the day's events... and it only
takes a few minutes of your time.
- ANN's Daily Briefing Aero-Cast: The Daily ANN
Report (ANNRep for short), is a more comprehensive look at the
day's news. We give you the whole buzz... the news and features
that occupy the forefront of aviation news as well as solid
background on the subjects that aviators and other aviation
professionals need to stay informed on.
- ANN's Daily 'ASR' Feature Aero-Cast: Our daily
'Aero-News Special Report' involves a more in-depth view of a story
or two that dominated (or will be dominating) the day's news. Far
more detailed than any single story in our standard ANN Daily
Reports, this is a solid chance to get a close look at the stories
and topics that matter. ASR features may include exclusive
interviews with Aviation's Newsmakers, ANN's Special Investigative
reports and solid analysis of the stories that will have undeniable
impact on the world of aviation and aerospace.
Check them out, let us know what you think and be sure to keep
those news-tips and program suggestions coming... ANN is ALL about
what YOU want to know about in the world of aviation and
