Aeromiao is a non-commercial "taxi-service" airline offering air travel on no set timetable to certain qualified airports in Second Life®. Owned and operated by cat avatars and cat-affiliated human avatars, the airline has its head office and operations center at White Star Airfield.
Founded in 2008, Aeromiao maintained check-in facilities only at the two East River airports, at White Star Airfield, at Baitoushan, and at Second Norway Lufthavn. In 2017, after economic instability and a regime change in the East Rive Community, the airline was restructured into a purely on demand/air taxi service, and maintains an official presence only at White Star and ERIA. Check-in is handled plane-side at all other facilities. The airline also operates at most other airports as decreed by its pilots; there is also a short list of airports that it generally does not operate at due to disagreements with management, design/layout/realism, or personal history.
