Commercial flying is "heavily regulated". The Federal Aviation Regulations (FAR) Title 119 is a good place to start...
PART 119--CERTIFICATION: AIR CARRIERS AND COMMERCIAL OPERATORS
Further detailed regulations depend upon whether you're carrying passengers or cargo and if you plan to go across state lines, provide services to private buyers or to the public (common carrier), the number of seats or pounds you intend to transport, etc.

First you get a license from department of transportation.
AFTER you get approved, THEN you can worry about planes and staff and support logistics.
