3 h, this works out to approximately 1,200 h of utilization per year for VLJs and 800 h for the other aircraft types. This is well above current utilization rates for small GA aircraft (which are more on the order of a few hundred hours per year), but still only a fraction of the utilization rates typical of large commercial aircraft. 6 It is important to recognize that the actual air taxi fleet projection levels depend heavily on a number of basic assumptions, the most prominent of which are • Definitions of the relevant universe for the automobile and commercial air travel markets; • “Full price of travel” estimates of the various modes, which depend on (among other things) uncertain estimates of the unit costs of providing traditional charter operations, wait and/or delay times associated with commercial air travel, and road congestion associated with automobile travel; • Actual availability of new “per-seat” VLJ services and/or low-cost piston services; and • Perceived similarities or differences between new services and traditional charter services.

Comparison with other VLJ fleet forecasts.

The overall level of activity at small airports is not likely to be affected significantly by VLJs that are purchased for traditional GA because their main effect will be a simple displacement of sales that would have gone to other small GA aircraft instead. On the other hand, the analysis indicates that sales of VLJs (and low-cost piston aircraft) for air taxi use are likely to displace automobile and commercial air traffic, leading to substantial increases in activity at certain airports that can handle large numbers of the new air taxi services.
