Long Island, New York-based Hopscotch Air celebrates its fifth anniversary this week. Hopscotch Air flies seven Cirrus SR22s as air taxis, an idea that was supposed to explode with the advent of glass cockpits, NextGen and very light jets. Hopscotch partners with Linear Air, a similarly configured air taxi operation flying Eclipse VLJs. Together, the two operators are able to offer a mix of speed and range options for on-demand air taxi customers. Hopscotch Air flies an average of 85 to 100 flights per month in the summer, though the business plan calls for a drop off in the colder weather. There are 10 pilots currently flying on a contract basis, with three more in training.
