would need to create a space "TOLL" system where they charge their customers fees to use their transportation device. Now, obviously they are already doing this as an over-glorified taxi service to the space station. However, imagine if you will, a sort of docking station between the moon and Mars where they will have to "fuel-up" or recharge if we are using electric at that point and it is all owned and operated by one of these space companies. Their profits will multiply by the BILLIONS!

C. 2017) For this assignment I would like to discuss the kit aircraft manufacturer DarkAero. They are currently in the introduction phase of their flagship kit the DarkAero 1 which is a moderately priced but high quality kit aircraft that personally I hope to get my hands on one day. They started in 2017 and as of May 2020 they are quite far into the build phase of the prototype. They claim 275mph cruise and a max range of 2000 miles for a finished price of around 160K which sounds very expensive, but compared to other options out there its very affordable. Since they are still building the prototype they are not making any money but once they move into the growth area they should pretty easily make profit. Hopefully this kit is wildly successful and they will stay away from the decline stage for a very long time, mainly because it going to take me years to save up enough for my own kit...

Retrieved from Robert Taupier Jun 18, 2020 # Reply " Tyson, I will admit I had to google and research this DarkAero after reading your discussion, also I have never heard of them. What an amazing concept, and could be the future of personal aircraft sales. I will continue to watch this company and hope for their success, and your right hopefully no decline phase in the near future. A 2000 mile range is quite a feat. Thanks for this discussion and bringing it to our attention. If you could venture what could possibly lead to a decline, what would it be? Rob Kevin Carr Jun 19, 2020 # Reply " As a previous flying student, I've always thought of flying as a mature industry with a known need for personal travel and business. In the case of kit aircraft, I think that the new innovations will still include new technology and skill for manufacturing. What improvements do you feel will increase technology and demand in the kit market?
