Air Taxi eyes November takeoff

St. John Air Taxi hopes to begin flights in about six months.  David S. Brown, chief executive, said he is negotiating for a landing spot near Enighed Pond and permission to build a ramp there.  Earlier reports indicated the airline would operate out of the Creek and near the Caneel Bay dock.  The air taxi is expected to charge as much as $900 for an hour of flight time, according to the St. John Source.  The Grumman Goose airplane can carry eight people.  "It’s like a street car for the Virgin Islands," Brown said, indicating the flights run operate continuously from St. John to St Croix to St. Thomas, and so on. He said the planes will not operate at night.
