Project: "REVOLUTION IN THE AIR"
Extracts from the BUSINESS PLAN

TIMING: The timing for public announcement of this project will be immediately after the first official landings on Earth of extra-terrestrial spacecraft (in Salt Lake City, Utah and Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada), although certain chosen individuals may be approached for their support and participation before then. This landing is commonly known as "First Contact." Activities will not commence prior to this date, nor will funds be accepted before new monetary regulations come into force, safeguarding the transfer of funds.
FIRST CONTACT: The purpose of "First Contact" is to invite the media to be present at the landing, photograph and report the event, and ask the shuttle crew any questions they may wish to ask about their origin, purpose and space travel in general. Above all it will be emphasized that they come in peace, contrary to the ongoing official 'government' stance that aliens are dangerous to mankind (see Secret NASA Connection to ET Technology). The only danger posed was countering the false information spread by government, which kept secret the fact that they had liaised with ETs for decades and used technology that they provided AGAINST mankind, rather than for the good of mankind. All that has now changed: technology is being made available which will bring about a new 'industrial revolution' for the benefit of all.
Subsequent landings will be to acclimatise the public to this new mode of air travel by inviting them on board for short trips, and thus give them confidence to accept this radical replacement of jet aircraft for long-distance travel.
THE IMPACT: We are concerned here with a "revolution in the air" which will both end pollution from air traffic and provide a solution to the ailing aviation industry, which has been in dire financial straits for some time, with frequent bankruptcies.
The changes will be so drastic that it would seem most advisable to include in the 'media group' (who are to meet with the crew of the first shuttlecraft) some of the aviation community who are representatives of boards and agencies 'controlling' airspace and all who use it both in the USA and in Canada, so that they can fully appreciate the inappropriateness of many of the existing rules as far as space-craft are concerned. They should also realise the importance of ensuring that there be no hindrance to the speedy establishment of this new industry and service, as the environmental and economic benefits are quite extraordinary and a necessary aid to reducing planetary pollution, at the lesser cost of anticipated losses to some existing industries.
Whether 'politicians' should be included at this point in the discussion is open to question. If included they must be truly 'representatives of the people' rather than professional politicians, who tend to espouse specific industries. As this project will start post-NESARA, these required conditions should exist at that time.
There should be support at municipal, provincial and federal government level for the establishment of a new industry, supplanting the traditional modes of transportation, and assurance from their representatives that current business interests will not be permitted to block its implementation and future growth.
After press reports on the first landing are distributed we can openly approach authorities and short-listed individuals to participate or cooperate in this project.
PLAN OF ACTION: First priority would be to obtain suitable property for the first manufacturing facility and space-port. Port and plant should preferably go hand-in-hand.
Contractors would then be approached to tender for the construction of this historic development.
The first stage might be the construction of a working model shuttle about 30 feet in diameter, to be used for demonstration purposes, providing short flights to interested parties (investors and others taking part in or being impacted by this new mode of travel) - but not the general public. Such shuttles have flown before, but without the advanced technology at our disposal.
The second stage would be the construction of full-scale, 100 foot diameter shuttles for passenger transportation, followed eventually by 150 foot models, which could be used for either cargo or as modern "jumbo-jets".
A plan for personal security would be developed to counter possible industrial espionage and the targeting of staff by businesses negatively affected by this technology. Living quarters on-site might be considered for some management staff in the early stages.
The initial negative impact on major aircraft manufacturers should not be under-estimated and countering action can be anticipated. Advertising literature should be designed to show the ultimate benefits to all involved in the aviation community, despite major adjustments at first, which undoubtedly could be financially disadvantageous to many in the short-term. It may even cause some manufacturers to go out of business.
DISTRIBUTION: The initial shuttlecraft will be made available for humanitarian projects, for demonstration purposes and for flights between the originating manufacturing plant/space-port to selected destinations.
Several of the first completed models would be made available for humanitarian and environmental purposes, such as delivering vittals, medical supplies, staff, housing and other raw materials to disaster areas and to under-privileged areas such as Central America, at no charge. The company organising such efforts would be the First Church of St Germain.
The first commercial shuttlecraft will be operated by an airline created specifically for this purpose. It is then anticipated that there will be a flood of orders from airlines worldwide and a system of priorities will decide the distribution.
Priority will be given to constructing independent space-ports (Type 'B' or 'C') on principal airways, but not necessarily using international airports: these would be used only as a last resort.
Subsequently, shuttlecraft may be supplied to reputable airlines in countries where there is neither internal strife nor political intrigue.
Manufacturing plants (Space Ports 'A') will also be established in areas where unemployment is relatively high and adequate technical staff are available to manage the facility. Control will be maintained at all times over marketing to ensure that sales are made only to reputable customers.
In some countries (including USA) it is reported that the federal government provides 90% of the funding required for new airports, the remaining 10% coming from local government. It is not known what strings are attached and exceptions to this rule are evident. However, there may be opportunities to receive such government funding in different locations worldwide.
Shuttlecraft, or shuttlecraft manufacturing facilities, may also be included as part of a package created as a carrot to produce a solution to internal strife. Such situations might include for instance Cyprus, an island forcibly divided by outside forces into two cultures, where the people can be persuaded to lay aside their long-standing grievances and enjoy technological benefits which will greatly improve the standard of living for all, and bring back the peace which they at one time enjoyed.
As the market at the moment is wide open, and demands for product would without doubt be without precedent, a priority plan should be drawn up, indicating which customers should receive the first shuttles available commercially, and where additional production facilities should be considered.
Once the information becomes public knowledge, Marketing and Sales staff will not be so much occupied in obtaining sales but in explaining the products and negotiating delivery of shuttles, as well as working to establish space-ports in various locations.
MARKETING: Air Travel must be completely reorganised. New thinking is required as our traditional conception of air travel must be radically altered.
Shuttlecraft could be ideal for special events, such as moving an orchestra from one continent to another (André Rieu, Pavarotti, The Boston Pops or complete theatre performances for example) - or even from one city to another, or moving sports teams (e.g. hockey) from one side of the country to the other with as good as no time lag. However, the no-alcohol rule may not be attractive to many sports teams.
Anyone who is in doubt about the reputation today of the airlines and the extent of complaints about them should listen to the TV program "Airline." Complaints rose 21% between 2004 and 2005 it has been reported.
The problems enumerated are in the main dissipated by this new service. Plane delays are caused principally by
Shuttlecraft service should not be considered on a par with airline service. Let passengers savour the glamour and efficiency of the new service and they will quickly forget the inefficiencies of the old ways. The public should be introduced to this service as a new experience, quite different to traditional airline travel. It might be better in fact to allow existing airlines to go out of business gradually, taking their sullied reputation with them, and to establish new 'airlines' with a brand new attitude to customers. The public memories of these shortcomings will be forgotten over time, but a complete break would be most beneficial.
- weather - this does not apply to shuttlecraft, with the exception of lightning;
- faulty or non-existent maintenance - as there is basically no maintenance required with the metals used, no metal fatigue, no time lost through faulty performance;
- airline food - or today, more likely the lack of it, which tends to become a handout of peanuts and departures scheduled to avoid expected 'meal times' during the flight;
- lost baggage.
Although a new location would be preferable, existing airports may be taken over slowly to accommodate this new service, which takes up only a fraction of the space currently required. Perhaps one contiguous section of a Gate at a time, to ensure there is no mixing of jets with shuttlecraft. A circular area of up to 200 feet in diameter is required for each landing pad - 100 or 150 feet for the shuttlecraft, plus 50 feet all round beyond the shuttle. This is more than is currently required at a loading bay, but neither runway nor runway approaches are required, and there is no refuelling. Not even maintenance hangars as such. The latter can be converted to manufacturing plants.
Eventually all fossil-fuel aircraft will be grounded and mothballed - or converted to scrap - and the runways can be converted to other purposes.
SPACE-PORTS: Establishing space-ports, outside existing airport facilities, must be considered a high priority as shuttles cannot land without adequate facilities at the destination point, including adequate ongoing-connections for arriving passengers.
Arrangements may be made with the authorities of tourist destinations to arrange special flights to their location, if necessary, and to set-up circular "shuttle" flights between several destinations.
Progress in providing these solutions in different countries will depend on the attitude of the local Civil Aviation Authority, which will therefore also dictate which countries will be given priority in establishing these activities.
However, the start to this program may indeed be very simple. Destinations will be solicited whilst the first shuttles are constructed. Acquisition of a field or permission to use a facility such as a sports arena, playing fields, parkland or any other flatland could be in a small town or village which would appreciate the attention and increased traffic, so long as a major transportation centre was reachable from that point and restaurant facilities were or could be made available, with taxis or buses providing the connecting link to ongoing transportation.
It is unlikely that there would be more than one flight daily to start with. In a sports arena this could take place before the daily sports event. And in this case it might even be in a major city.
Low-cost airlines were very successful in obtaining the use of small airports in out of the way places rather than landing in the more costly major airports such as London and Frankfurt. We do not even require an airport. It would be a drawing-card in many small tourist towns and unlikely to encounter opposition.
In the first place therefore, the Space Port 'C' is an attractive proposition, and the facilities could be on a lesser scale than was envisaged even for a Space Port 'C'.
Progress in providing these solutions in different countries will depend partly on the attitude of the local Civil Aviation Authority. This in turn will influence our decision as to which countries will be given priority in establishing these services.
FLEXIBLE USE: Limiting the use of shuttlecraft to the replacement of commercial jet aircraft would be short-sighted. There are many other ways in which existing services could be supplanted by this new technology - passenger ferries would be high on this list, overcoming current problems associated with heavy seas and weather disturbances.
