Founder of ‘air taxi’ service flies to success

(CNN) — Like a lot of kids, Aaron Sohacki’s dad took him to watch airplanes take off and land at the airport.

Like some kids, his love for watching planes turned into a love of flying, and he got his pilot’s license before his driver’s license.

Uniquely, his love for flying turned into a passion for running a business that flies other people.

Ever since I could remember, I’ve been passionate about aviation, said Sohacki. At 21, he started ImagineAir. It’s a regional company that lets regular folks fly privately.

Sohacki describes ImagineAir as, a new form of transportation that allows people to get all the benefits of private air travel — the time savings and convenience — but at a price point that’s a little bit closer to commercial aviation. Watch the CNN.com Live interview

Along the way, he has flown some not-so-regular people like one of his first clients, the former mayor of Augusta, Georgia, who needed to fly to have dinner with Rudy Giuliani.

The charter service takes people 300-500 miles from the headquarters in Atlanta, Georgia. Considered a new version of a taxi service, the air taxi often costs less than commercial travel.

Now age 24, the CEO still flies customers and often gets asked, Are you even old enough to fly this plane? E-mail to a friend
