New SoCal Air Taxi
A Southern California charter company has started the latest Cirrus-based air taxi service, betting SoCal business people and recreational travelers will embrace the convenience of point-to-point air travel at the lower cost afforded by the piston fleet. New Vectors Aviation, based at Chino Hills Airport, launched the service this week, offering flights of up to 500 miles in Cirrus SR22s and some Beech Bonanzas for what it says is substantially less than similar flights in turboprops or business jets. "Businesses still have to operate and travel is often necessary, even during these challenging economic times," said Tom Bressan, chief executive officer. "Money is tight and time is a valuable asset."
Bressan said the most popular destinations are mainly in the south but the carrier can reach destinations in Northern California as well as Nevada and Arizona. Online reservations are available.
