What Charles Lindbergh did back in 1927 by flying solo non-stop from Roosevelt Field, New York, to Le Bourget in Paris went well beyond an exploit...and now comes the promise of space flight for all thanks to the likes of the X Prize Foundation and Virgin Galactic. But before you reach those heights there appears a stepping stone: The Lindbergh Card. This jet travel card by Empyrean was launched by Chris Leach, Founder of Air Charter Service, and Brand Ambassador Erik Lindbergh, the famous aviator's grandson who in 2002 recreated the flight for a 75th anniversary celebration. The card promises great savings and unlimited access to a flotilla of aircrafts from an executive turboprop to a wide-body airliner to helicopters. The whole point is to save time and eliminate hassle. In their words: "The Lindbergh Way — Fly How You Want, When You Want, Where You Want."
