. Usually these are one or more turbine-powered, multi-engine planes occupied by two pilotes. Frequently, services are organised through intermediaries who fix prices and in turn remunerate the airline for the provision of the services. It' s a classic package, but not as Ben Hamilton and his associates thought it would be.
Hamilton, an aviation and space engineering graduate from Georgia Tech and CFI who led the school's 200-member Yellow Jacket Flying Club, and Aaron Sohacki, also a Ramblin' Wreck driver and follower, had a different perspective when they began to discuss the yacht Charter industry in 2005. Top end customers such as large enterprises and wealthy private persons are well serviced with EJM, Jet Aviation and other corporate identities.
Naturally, it would require a price quote to get everyday street fighters off the highway and into the air. There'?s a second one. Your flight was the Cirrus SR22, a demanding, high-performance four-seater aeroplane. The Cirrus among the standard aircrafts has a special skydiving system for entire aircrafts.
Another important component was a website that immediately provided passengers with prices for each journey between two of the 900 East US cities. Prices can change according to the hour of the morning - a function that has been coded to help minimise empty trips. As there would only be one pilots, this would have to be an accomplished flyer and have a dedicated, inviting character - after all, the pilots would probably be the only ImagineAir staff the client would have access to.
The ImagineAir began operations in 2007 at Gwinnett County Airport, Lawrenceville, Georgia. Currently the business employs 40 people, runs a float of 11 SR22, rented by clients and operated by 20 full-time and flexitime pilot, most of whom are pensioned airlines or army transport. Altogether, the planes have completed over 25,000 flying segments on journeys of an hour 20 minutes on medium and 1.8 passenger on medium.
Hamilton said the company's operations are operating profitably and expanding according to Hamilton, CEO, co-founder and boyfriend Sohacki is now a Delta Airlines marketing company. Sales have grown by 30% or more each year, he says, and the plans include expanding the airline to 30 planes next year and a further 20 in 2016.
Hamilton says, just as well: "The cost was too high for our one. "Nevertheless, he acknowledges that he "has his eye set on" the SF50 vision, the single-engine Cirrus Aircraft plane currently undergoing certified test flights. As soon as the enterprise has saturated the east coast, Hamilton envisions that they could also start a west coast surgery.
