ShortJet Taxis
ShortJet Taxis | Source

With the introduction of its new and innovative air service, ShortJet appears to have finally solved all the problems of flight delays, impersonal service, lost baggage and inconvenient connections. (It has however, potentially worsened, to an exponential degree, the air traffic control problem across the nation’s airspace.)

Here we see ShortJet’s inaugural flight taxiing for take-off. Each of ShortJet’s flights is designed for a single passenger and single pilot, along a one-way flight plan directly from the passenger’s departure city to the passenger’s destination city. Flights therefore leave as soon as the passenger makes it through security, and there are absolutely no flight connections to be missed or layovers to be endured. And baggage can never stray away from the passenger. (Added bonus!: No line at the airplane lavatory!)

One minor inconvenience: to keep ShortJet’s short jets properly balanced, the passenger must sit on the pilot’s lap for the entire duration of both take-off and landing.

      Approximately how tall do you need to be on this flight? Certainly there needs to be a stipulation of height and weight requirements so the little jet can get up its speed. It must be a turbo engine. I would rather get to work in this than sit on a highway in all those traffic jams.( I definitely needed the shortjet when I got stuck on the interstate for 9 hours the night of our last snowstorm.)

      Lets just hope the pilot doesn't mind the seating arrangement! Good Job here!
