NASA's Langley Research Center in Hampton, Va., is testing a program to use small jets for a public taxi service between the nation's roughly 5,400 small, public-use airports.

The "micro jets" would charge rates similar to those for business-class seats but provide the convenience of personalized service. Each would carry four to six passengers.
Passengers would have to call a carrier and give directions on when and where they want to be picked up, as well as their destination.
"The idea is kind of a jet taxi," said Kathy Barnstorff, NASA Langley spokeswoman.
