Veteran Pilot Vern Raburn has a plan to save us from the nightmare that is modern air travel-the lines, the endless delays, the crowded cabins. His company, Eclipse Aviation in Albuquerque, is manufacturing the most inexpensive business jet ever: a six-seat bird called the Eclipse 500. Hailed as the nation´s first real air taxi, one that could shuttle customers between America´s 5,400 small (read: uncrowded) airports, the jet costs just $1.5 million. Raburn´s biggest customer, DayJet, will begin its regional taxi service with 12 of its 309 Eclipse planes in Florida next month, with flights that cost $1 to $3 a mile. We caught up with Raburn at his factory in New Mexico.
