Charter aircraft serve more than 3,000 airports, and most charter establishments average 19 employees, have one or two aircraft and less than $2.5 million in annual revenues. It is often been said in scientific research that learning what does not work is a step to learning solutions. When SpaceX stuck the landing of its main booster on a platform in the Pacific Ocean following their most recent launch, it appears the booste
