Mississippi attorney Stan Little used his Cessna 421 Golden Eagle for trips throughout the South and the Caribbean, and friends liked to joke that he should start his own regional airline. Southern Airways Express launches today with a flight for investors and the media from Memphis, Tenn., to Destin, Fla. The airline's passengers will travel on Cessna 208 Caravans and be able to bypass security screening. "Everything you don't like about the airlines today, we are going to find ways to eliminate it," Little said.
