Posted by William Herp on Wed, Mar 26, 2014

Linear Air's 'Manhattan Getaway' weekend is an auction success!

Junior Achievement of Northern New England is an amazing organization which Linear Air is proud to support. Junior Achievement has programs in place at schools across the country to help students get ready for success in the workforce. I was personally involved with Junior Achievement (JA) back when I was in high school in Louisville, KY. I won't reveal exactly how long ago that was... but suffice it to say I have JA to thank for igniting my entrepreneurial passion.

Teterboro Airport: No delays on flights from New York City

Posted by Devon Freitas on Fri, Jun 07, 2013

I enjoy the runway view at airports -- watching large airliners line up on the runway, fire up their turbofan jet engines, and elegantly soar into the sky. Despite working in aviation, I still find myself in awe of the system that safely coordinates millions of takeoffs and landings each day around the world. However, as many travelers have unfortunately experienced, airline schedules aren't always as reliable as one might expect.

No Hopeless Drunks Next to Airline Emergency Exits

Posted by William Herp on Fri, Apr 12, 2013

It's understandable that almost no one pays attention to flight attendants’ pre-flight safety briefings and demonstrations. We’ve all seen it a hundred times before and we pretty much already know where the emergency exits are. And we’ve been buckling seat belts in cars and planes since we were toddlers, so those particular instructions seem trite.

My Cirrus SR-22 Air-Taxi Trip

Posted by William Herp on Thu, Feb 28, 2013

I left the house one morning around 7:15, just after breakfast and returned home that evening around 6:30 for dinner with family.

Pretty normal, right?

Not if you knew what transpired during those 11-plus hours. And the story of that illustrates the value of my company, Linear Air, better than just about anything else I can tell you.
