Somehow, I fell into a trap of finding fascinating blog posts regarding the development of the Small Aircraft Transportation System (SATS) program in the United States. Probably has something to do with one of my friends at Ivy Tech Community College.

Well, I found another. Connecting the Dots offers up a podcast on the topic. SATS seems like a fascinating development in air travel, as Steve Borsch quotes a March 2006 article from the New York Times:

The F.A.A. expects about 100 or so of the jets to begin flying this year. Proponents of the microjets, which have a range of 1,000 miles or more, said they would spawn a new generation of air taxis and charters that would carry travelers to small airports, usually within 20 minutes of their homes or destinations, at coach fare prices.

Fascinating.
