Heavy Lifting, Inc.

Executive Summary

Heavy Lifting, Inc. is a new entrant in the international civil aviation industry and is in its formative stages. It is being formed to take advantage of a gap that exists in international civil aviation safety with respect to the provision of systems:

  1. For independently verifying compliance with maximum certified aircraft weight & balance limitations for take off and landing.
  2. That provide airport operators with a revenue-generating tool that is more efficient and uses a fairer base from which to generate airport landing fees than the present system.
  3. That offer others in the industry cost savings and accurate weight & balance measurement.
  4. That achieve peace of mind, fuel and emission cost savings and can reduce maintenance costs for aircraft operators.

The management of Heavy Lifting, Inc. is experienced in the aviation and engineering businesses with a total of over eighty years combined experience.

From a modest initial turnover in the first year, Heavy Lifting, Inc. expects exceptional sales by the end of year three and a commensurate net profit. Our research shows that there is a potential for upwards of 10,000 airports in the World that need our product. From that potential our company expects to obtain a lion’s share of the total market. An outside investor, with 20% of Heavy lifting stock, can expect an IRR of 91% on a $1 Million investment by year 5, when we plan an initial public offering of stock.

We will begin by demonstrating the overdue need for aircraft weight and balance systems at all airports carrying passengers or freight for hire or reward. We will outline a unique and innovative method of revenue generation for airport owners coupled with a tangible flight safety enhancement that can potentially save the industry untold human lives and aircraft hull losses.

1.1 Objectives

The company has the following objectives:

  • To build and test the first two (2) Heavy Lifting aircraft weigh bridges at DEF, California, U.S. in the first year of operations.

  • Maintain a world database of commercial weight and balance information.
  • After acceptance by FAA of the mandatory requirement for RPT airports, to provide Heavy Lifting systems for regular public transport and cargo aircraft safety monitoring and compliance and to gain acceptance from other State CAA’s and from ICAO of the need for a global safety and compliance monitoring weight and balance network (Create SARPS in Annex 6).

It is our ultimate objective to sell Heavy Lifting aircraft weight and balance weigh bridges to all airports in the world that cater for aircraft carrying passengers and/or cargo for hire or reward.
