I guess it was only a matter of time until the last door closed for DayJet. Really sorry for you guys who gave it a shot and rolled the dice working for DayJet. Good luck to you all and really hope you find work shortly.

Lights Out for DayJet[FONT=Verdana, Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif]
[/FONT][FONT=Verdana, Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif]Per-seat, on-demand very light jet (VLJ) air-taxi firm DayJet last Friday filed for Chapter 7 bankruptcy (liquidation), just four days after company founder Ed Iacobucci expressed doubt at a VLJ air-taxi conference that the Boca Raton, Fla.-based charter operator would be resurrected. The company ceased operations on September 19 and its 28 Eclipse 500s were subsequently repossessed by Eclipse Aviation and United Technologies Finance, a sister company to Eclipse engine supplier Pratt & Whitney Canada. DayJet leaves behind a 60-page list of creditors, apparently mostly customers who used the per-seat, on-demand service. The bankruptcy documents, filed in the Delaware District U.S. Bankruptcy Court, list DayJet Corporation, DayJet Leasing LLC and DayJet Services LLC as debtors, with $3,277,180.47 in assets and $3,871,666.51 in liabilities. The largest debts owed include $1.2 million (listed as a disputed amount) to Eclipse; $574,000 to WingedFoot Aviation Holdings, a charter company owned by Iacobucci and holder of DayJet’s Part 135 charter certificate; nearly $370,000 to Avcard; and $312,000 to Eclipse’s training division, among others. According to minutes of the last board meeting included in the bankruptcy filing documents, DayJet executives tried several last-ditch efforts to save the company[/FONT][FONT=Verdana, Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif].

They shut dowm operations but continued operating the company without declaring bankruptcy while Ed continued to seek new funding for partial start up and selling the technology.

So much for the VLJs blocking the sun with airplanes. but still it is sad. At least they had the guts to try.
