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.
After leaving the house I drove a few minutes to Hanscom Field, in Bedford, MA, a western suburb of Boston. Not only am I the founder and CEO of Linear Air, the nation’s leading on-demand air taxi service, I’m also a pilot. And instead of flying Linear Air customers that day or working at my desk, I needed to make a multi-stop sales trip. So I flew myself in the Cirrus SR22 piston-engine aircraft that Linear Air uses as its management plane. (Our customers actually fly on one of our faster, higher-flying, longer-ranged Eclipse very light jets. But if that plane isn’t suitable for a shorter-range trip, we can book Linear Air passengers on Cirrus SR22 planes operated by our marketing partner Hopscotch Air. The Cirrus SR22 is the best and safest piston-engine plane ever built.)
