Introduction and Summary of Business model


The demand for flying machines is going up day by day. Since the invention of Wright brothers, this sector has mature very sharply but unfortunately our nation is still way behind in the back yard of the sector. But the news of hope is that people have slowly started thinking about this fast growing sector and in recently an aircraft maintenance organization has been established in Hazrat Shahjalal International Airport which has done some successful business deals with the foreign airlines. But if we have a look on the rotorcraft sector, we can see it is still green. Money is in the air but there is no one to grab it and make a healthy business by establishing the ground for rotorcraft related business in Bangladesh. That is why our interest is in exploring those opportunities and becoming a pioneer and leader. Maintenance is a crucial factor and the foremost barrier for aviation industry because the maintenance cost is very high, especially for us as there is no such organization who can solve the rotorcraft problems and maintain them in the right way. Plenty of millionaires in Bangladesh are thinking about buying a helicopter as their prime transport, because it is easy to fly from any where and will save a lot of time which is much more important for the conglomerates. But when the question comes about maintenance the dream of helicopter is demolished straight away. But our eventual goal is to fulfil their dream and give the rotorcraft business a successful shape in Bangladesh and drag it to international level.

Objectives
The prime objective of this project is to establish another transportation business by the side of airlines business. Now people are flying through aircraft but in near future people will fly through Helicopter with low cost and any place in Bangladesh. It is really impossible to go to a particular place with aircraft because of the things involved with it i.e. runway, pilot, cabin crew, ATC, airport etc. But in terms of a Helicopter only one pilot per vehicle is enough to provide the service within Bangladesh. To support/maintain our helicopter we have to establish the Helicopter MRO (Maintenance & Repair Organization) which in fact will be the source of earning major revenue for the company.

Mission
Institute the helicopter sells point. Airlines business with helicopter instead of aircraft. Ascertain an Helicopter MRO Set up helicopter equipment overhauling facilities. Exertion as consultant for different airlines in terms of aircraft/helicopter lease or buy. Make a base for enthusiastic in aviation.

Company Summary
Get Proposal for Company name Something like avia etc However in aviation industry obvious names are omitted such as Aviatech Name should ideally start with the alphabet A Should be relevant to companys core service and business activity Should be easy to remembered

Keys to Success
Take Charge The first key is to realize that successes will not just happen, it is up to the particular to make it happen. Successful people claim to be in control. So when we are in control we can choose what to do. As our professional and educational life has started with Aviation so most of the factors that can affect internally and externally in our business is familiar to us. Know Where we Are Going Without having specific goals, business owners often find working in the business becomes an endless drudgery. If being in business is not exciting, enjoyable and rewarding, then why be in it? We have a clear idea of where we are going what should be the next. If our goals are not clearly defined it is easy to become like the mouse on the treadmill. Train our People to do It better than us When we start a business based on our own unique skills, we have a difficult choice when we get too busy to cope up with all the work our expertise has created. We need to spread the load by employing others to do some of the work. This is the critical point in the business development. If we get this right, the future of the business is assured, but if it goes wrong, the business is doomed. Having made the choice to grow, the key to unlocking this potential is to train the new people to be better than ourselves. Celebrate Victories When we plan our future and set goals it is easy to determine when to celebrate. Without goals to achieve, we can keep on working until it becomes a drudgery. Celebrations put excitement into what we do.

SWOT Analysis
Strengths A major strength of any airline is the product itself, i.e. air travel and also the esteem of being noticed in the society as the owner of a private helicopter. Despite downturns, over time air travel continues to grow, not only due to the amount of money people posses but also due to an increased propensity to fly. An additional strength is the safety record, and the associated public acceptance of air travel as both a fast and safe way to travel. Weaknesses Airlines have a high spoilage rate compared to most other industries. Aircraft is expensive and requires huge capital outlays. Continual communication and monitoring required. This can be exacerbated during operational irregularities, such as bad weather or natural disasters. Lack of trained pilot. Opportunities Airline market growth offers continual expansion opportunities for both leisure and business destinations. This is particularly true for destinations all over Bangladesh. Technology advances can result in cost savings, from more fuel efficient aircraft to more automated processes on the ground. Technology can also result in increased revenue due to customer-friendly service enhancements like in-flight internet access and other value added products for which a customer will pay extra. Threats A local and even a global economic downturn negatively affects leisure, optional travel, as well as business travel. The price of fuel is now the greatest cost for many airlines, hence an upward spike can destabilize the business model. A plague or terrorist attack anywhere in the country can negatively affect air travel. Government intervention can result in new costly rules or unexpected new competition.
