                    The Butterfly Aircraft LLC’s Business Plan




3. Products

       The Butterfly Aircraft LLC is a retail company of kit parts for small, personal
  aircraft kits for easy final assembly by the customer. Each kit comes with every
  part necessary, detailed instructions (approximately 100-300 hours required) and
  factory support. As SATS moves into full implementation, it is believed
  completed aircraft will be licensed for sale. The FAA is certainly involved in the
  SATS process. To date, final assembly by the customer is required for
  liability reasons.

   We will sell the Kits and the Parts for the following models:
                    The Butterfly Aircraft LLC’s Business Plan


                          The Emperor Butterfly




    Welcome to The Emperor Butterfly gyroplane. This vehicle is "The seed to
the rain forest". The Butterfly airframe is the beginning of a new wave of
transportation for the modern world. The Butterfly starts out as a small single
place vehicle that easily transforms into other models with bolt on modifications
that will be discussed later. It is so small it easily fits into a trailer or the back of
a standard sized pickup truck.

   The Emperor Butterfly is a Personal Air Vehicle.

   This Gyroplane easily stores in your home garage and uses normal
automotive gasoline in a two-cycle engine. Less than 100 hours are needed to
assemble the kit that comes complete.

   Maximum speed is 63 miles per hour. It needs approximately 500 feet to
take off and 3 to 5 feet for landing.
                  The Butterfly Aircraft LLC’s Business Plan

    Safety is the primary reason for the design of The Butterfly. Engine-out
situations mean you float to earth like a parachute, since the blades (wings) are
always auto-rotating. The Butterfly is not a helicopter.

   Training to fly The Butterfly is typically 10-hours with a flight instructor.

    A detailed instruction manual is provided and upgrade parts are available
after the sale.

                           The Monarch Butterfly




   The Monarch is a high performance gyroplane. This model will fit into the
Experimental class.

   The Monarch has basically a Butterfly airframe with bolt on modifications
which include:

(1) A larger Rotax engine with 66 hp.

(2) The Metro Launch System (optional) pre rotator gives The Monarch a shorter
ground roll on takeoff.

(3) The new patented "G Force Landing Gear" is available for this model. This
GFLG has been tested to over 500 ft/minute vertical descent all the way to the
ground without damage to the airframe or harm to the pilot. (This machine was
on display in the NASA Tent at Sun & Fun 2004 in Lakeland Florida.)

Other bolt on items are:

(1) Metro Launch System (a strong pre rotator).

(2) G-Force Landing Gear.
             The Butterfly Aircraft LLC’s Business Plan


                        The Aurora Butterfly




    The Aurora Butterfly is a Rotax 912S powered
gyroplane. It comes standard with the G-Force Magnum
All Terrain landing gear and the new 912 Metro Launch
System. This unit leaves the ground in 3 to 5 seconds
and climbs at over 1,000 ft/minute. It can carry up to 20
gallons of fuel (reserve fuel tanks optional) and can be
used on large ranches, for thousands of other
applications, or just for fun.

    Valorie White, our Executive Vice President, is seated
in the Aurora and will be showing off all of our new
products around the world.
                 The Butterfly Aircraft LLC’s Business Plan




The Super Sky Cycle prototype was at Sun’N Fun 2006 in Lakeland Florida at The
Butterfly LLC display at Chopper town and was on display at the “Flying Car
Forum” held by Larry Neal on Friday, April 7th.




                     The Super Sky Cycle Prototype
                  The Butterfly Aircraft LLC’s Business Plan




    This picture was taken in early 2006 when the WFAA Channel 8 News was
shooting a news story on the prototype Flying Motorcycle. The rotor folds from
26’10” in flight mode to 13’ 4” in drive m ode. The rear wheels pull you down the
road as a legal 3 wheeled (trike) motorcycle. After taking it to Sun & Fun and
Oshkosh with the 66 hp 2 stroke engine a 100 hp airplane motor and separate
drive engine was added. The request from the crowds was to have the
dependability of a four stroke flight engine if the machine was to be used for
extensive cross country flights. We have learned to listen to our customers and
the new production Super Sky Cycle was born.
                   The Butterfly Aircraft LLC’s Business Plan




        This is the production Super Sky Cycle being shown by Valorie White.

     The Super Sky Cycle kit comes standard with the Rotax 912ULS 4 cylinder, 4
stroke 100 hp Aircraft Engine. It can also be upgraded to the Rotax
turbocharged 115 hp Aircraft Engine.

    The Super Sky Cycle has a separate small engine (not the flying engine)
that drives the rear wheels down the road and is operated using the handle bars
just like other motorcycles and allows the SSC to drive down the road as a legal
three wheeled motorcycle. Now the Super Sky Cycle can fit in your garage (clears
an 8’ garage door header), drive down the road, and fly through the air.

     A unique feature is that this one flies and drives. A major problem in air
transportation is ground transportation. Flying to an airport to find there is no
way to get to an appointment or home, causes people to forget flying, opting for
traffic jams and lost time.

    The SUPER SKY CYCLE lands virtually anywhere, even at an airport, and
drives home or to an appointment, where it is easily parked in a garage or
normal parking space. This aircraft routinely lands with the engine at idle, with no
ground roll, and descends slower than a parachute.

     Legally, this vehicle is a motorcycle, with three wheels on the ground. In fact,
it is licensed as a motorcycle.
                  The Butterfly Aircraft LLC’s Business Plan

                              The Golden Butterfly




    The Golden Butterfly is a Subaru powered 2.5 liter engine with190 HP two
place trainer developed especially to train people how to fly the Emperor,
Monarch, Aurora, Super Sky Cycle, and Golden Butterfly. It includes the
patented G Force Landing Gear, “Low Rider” folding mast, vibration dampeners,
and electric pre rotator as standard equipment.

The Golden Butterfly won the “Outstanding New Design” award at
Airventure 2004 held at Oshkosh, Wisconsin.

A 305 hp Turbocharged Golden Butterfly (pictured above) is also available.

These machines can be used for training, drug intervention, border patrol, cargo
haulers, crop dusting, or 1000 other uses around the world.

4. Market Analysis Summary

    The prime market is the SATS customer. Additionally, the market includes;

    •    Business transportation needs,
    •    Package delivery system,
    •    NASA and FAA testing,
    •    General public.




  4.1.       Market Segmentation

         Most important in our marketing approach will be the utilization of the
     contact and relationship base in the aviation industry already established by
     Larry Neal and The Butterfly Aircraft LLC from his contacts and influence at
     air shows across the county.

         All of our Dealers contact information will be included on our website:

                                       www.thebutterflyllc.com

         Word-of-mouth advertising represents an important aspect, as well, with
     the quality of each project holding paramount value in the furtherance of our
     good reputation.

     As our dealers around the world set up training facilities using the Golden
     Butterfly trainers, they will draw customers to their individual business locations and have a cash
     of customers for our products. They will make money training and also from sales.

                            Market Analysis (Pie)




4.2.      Target Market Segment Strategy

       Why the Gyroplane?

      "Gyroplane " is an official term designated by the Federal Aviation
   Administration (FAA) describing an aircraft that gets lift from a freely turning
   rotary wing (rotor blades), and which derives its thrust from an engine-
   driven propeller. Historically, this type of aircraft has been known as the
   autogiro and the gyrocopter. The early names and variants were filed as
   trademarks.

      Gyroplanes derive lift from freely turning rotor blades tilted back to catch
   the air. The rushing air spins the rotor as the aircraft is pushed by an engine-
   driven propeller. Early gyroplanes were powered by engines in a tractor
   (pulling) configuration and were relatively heavy. Modern gyroplanes use a
   pusher propeller and are light and maneuverable. With the engine in the
   rear, the gyroplane has unobstructed visibility.

       A Gyroplane can fly more slowly than airplanes and will not stall. They can
   fly as fast as helicopters but cannot hover. Since the rotor blades on the
   gyroplane are turned only by the air (autorotation), much like a windmill,
   there is no need for a tail rotor for anti-torque. The gyroplane is a stable
   flying platform. This is not so with helicopters, which pull the air down
   through engine-powered rotor blades making it possible to hover, but also
   making the aircraft very complicated and expensive to fly. Due to their
   inherent simplicity, gyroplanes are easier to operate and less expensive to
   maintain than helicopters.

      Gyroplanes in flight are always in autorotation. If power fails in a
   gyroplane the autorotation continues, and the aircraft can settle softly to the
   ground from any altitude. The procedure to land after a power failure is the
   same procedure as a normal landing, which requires no landing roll. Thus the
   gyroplane is a safer aircraft for low and slow flight, as compared with both
                 The Butterfly Aircraft LLC’s Business Plan

   helicopters and airplanes. The ability of gyroplanes to fly as fast as
   helicopters and slower than airplanes makes it something of a hybrid, having
   the good qualities of the other two types of aircraft with little of the bad.

      The single attraction of helicopters over gyroplanes is their ability to
   hover, which is necessary in some situations such as rescue or in sling load
   work. In air surveillance and point-to-point flying, not being able to hover is
   not a disadvantage because many gyroplanes take off and land in a short
   distance without having to hover. Helicopters at low altitude out of ground
   effect avoid hovering whenever possible. It is too dangerous. To fix
   surveillance on one spot, proper procedure for all rotorcraft is to circle in a
   slow orbit or have the ability for slow flight into the wind.




4.3.     Industry Analysis

      SATS is a navigation system that moves control of air traffic from the
   ground to the cockpit, using computers and other aids to make the Highway
   in the Sky, such as those sold by Chelton Flight Systems.




      NASA's Transportation System Analysis and Assessment Working Group,
   the National Coalition for Air Mobility (NCAM) and NASA's Personal Air Vehicle
                    The Butterfly Aircraft LLC’s Business Plan

      (PAV) research. The result is a system that has captured the interest of
      investors in Air-Taxi Services and PAV manufactures. To date, more than $3-
      Billion is behind the Air Taxi version of SATS (as per Dr. Bruce Holmes) and
      one thousand companies intend to be involved. Radical changes are in the
      near future for aviation. NASA is creating the Small Aircraft Transportation
      System (SATS), and publicly demonstrated the system in 2005 in several
      cities. SATS is increasing the demand for Personal Air Vehicles (PAV's)
      already. NASA, the U.S. Department of Transportation Federal Aviation
      Administration, industry stakeholders, and academia have joined forces to
      pursue the NASA National General Aviation Roadmap leading to a Small
      Aircraft Transportation System (SATS). Another system has just been
      introduced by Stratomaster called the Enigma, which is scheduled for testing
      by our company in one of our vehicles.

           SATS is not an option but a sound solutio n. As our transportation slows,
      so does our economy. The people movers of the near future must provide
      door-to-door (or nearly) capabilities that are not subject to traffic jams,
      wasted time and national resources. The companies that provide the answers
      will share in a Trillion-Dollar transportation prize.

         The SUPER SKY CYCLE is the ideal PAV (Personal Air Vehicle). Dr. Bruce
      Holmes, the godfather of SATS told a packed house in Oshkosh, Wisconsin,
      "We need a SATS vehicle that is affordable. The general public will not spend
      three-quarters of a million on an aircraft." The Super Sky Cycle is an aircraft
      (PAV) with the performance that fits into SATS that sells for the price of a
      luxury car.




     4.3.1.         Competition and Buying Patterns

        While connected to gyropla ne history, TBALLC is not focusing on the
     established industry.

         To report on aircraft makers not going for the same market is not being
     true to the intent of this plan. Selling to the ultralight aircraft market is not
     in our plan, but if these sales are requested from sport or ultralight flyers, we
     will not refuse the business.

       Growth for the SATS-related aircraft industry is dramatic. Dr. Paul Moller
    estimates sales to top $1-Trillion. Even if Dr. Moller is overly optimistic , and
    the real number is one-fourth of that, we still have a huge potential.
    (www.moller.com)




5. Strategy and Implementation Summary

      Our marketing strategy is to showcase the Butterfly Series at Air Shows,
  personal sales efforts, and advertising on the world wide web. Our Dealers are
  allowed to do the same.
                  The Butterfly Aircraft LLC’s Business Plan


5.1.     Competitive Edge

        The Butterfly Aircraft LLC is in an interesting position with use of the Fly-
   Drive Vehicle Patent secured. The existing business aircraft market fills only
   a small niche in SATS yet the SSC’s can have a significant impact on the
   business aircraft market as SATS comes to maturity. Immediate use of the
   SSC in business will happen, still timing of this design and SATS couldn't be
   better. While the market share is nonexistent at this point, no other aircraft
   is being prepared like TBALLC’s products for both SATS and business
   markets.




     Attention to TBALLC is growing also. Oklahoma's Governor
  Brad Henry was introduced to The Monarch Butterfly at the
  university in Weatherford Oklahoma in 2003.
                   The Butterfly Aircraft LLC’s Business Plan




       Joe Tilton and Richard Sabia introduced Oklahoma Governor Brad Henry to
                   The Monarch Butterfly at Southwestern University.




         And it all started with the lowly Butterfly, "The seed to the rain
      forest". This seed has grown into the Super Sky Cycle flying motorcycle.




5.2 Marketing Strategy
               The Butterfly Aircraft LLC’s Business Plan

        To support the marketing initiatives and product knowledge, The
Butterfly Aircraft LLC’s dealers may attend as many aircraft shows,
motorcycle shows, and other events as possible to ensure the public has the
most up-to-date information on our products.

       The following photographs are an impressive array of images of the
acceptance by the public of “The Butterfly” and its abilities. This represents
an example of the effectiveness of marketing at air shows.




        Larry demonstrated the Stop and Drop capability of the G Force
Landing Gear Tuesday and Sunday in the Showcase at Airventure 2004.
(Pictured below) Discovery Wings is installing a lipstick camera and filmed the
landings on Sunday.
                  The Butterfly Aircraft LLC’s Business Plan




   The Monarch was the only Gyroplane at the 100 year Anniversary of the Wright
Brothers Centennial of flight at Kitty Hawk, North Carolina in December of 2003 and
was allowed to circle the monument three times on the anniversary fly by date.
                 The Butterfly Aircraft LLC’s Business Plan




    The crowd really enjoyed seeing The Butterfly at the 2003 Extreme Air Show
in Oklahoma City.
               The Butterfly Aircraft LLC’s Business Plan




The Monarch Butterfly was on display in the NASA tent at Sun & Fun 2004

along with a display for Personal Air Vehicles.

The Butterfly Aircraft LLC’s “G Force Landing Gear” was

featured as a high tech device and displayed under a banner that read

“Safer By Design”.
                      The Butterfly Aircraft LLC’s Business Plan




The Monarch Butterfly flew “Stop and Drop” demonstrations flights, showing off the
new “G Force Landing Gear”, for the news media and public on Friday, Saturday, and
Sunday at Chopper Town during Sun & Fun 2004. Larry Neal flew the craft in at
times with the engine turned off, flared at about 15’ high, and then, settled to the
ground vertically as the landing gear absorbed over 700’/minute vertical descents.
One person in the crowd that didn’t understand what was going on yelled “crash” but
then was amazed as the gyroplane took off again to repeat the demonstration.

       The patented “G Force Landing Gear” is a   quantum leap in landing gear
technology for gyroplanes. This gear will allow safer landings in case a pilot flares
too high or has an engine out close to the ground. This safety feature alone sets the
Monarch gyroplane in a whole different class by itself. No other gyroplane that we
know of has the capability to drop in from altitude as this one can with this new gear
design. This landing gear has changed the safety of Gyroplanes forever.
                     The Butterfly Aircraft LLC’s Business Plan




       The flight demonstrations of the Monarch Butterfly were one of the highlights
of the 2003 and 2004 SATS Expo held in Weatherford, Oklahoma. Astronaut General
Thomas P. Stafford and Dr. Bruce Holmes (the father of SATS) were among the
onlookers. When Dr. Holmes first saw the Butterfly lift off he spoke these prophetic
words to Joe Tilton: “That’s the way we need to go to work.”

                      The Butterfly Aircraft LLC’s Business Plan




The new production Super Sky Cycle was on display at Airventure 09. Larry drove the
SSC to the Road-able Aircraft Forum on Friday night. It was the only Fly-drive Vehicle
that attended the event.
                      The Butterfly Aircraft LLC’s Business Plan




The SSC won 2nd place in the Most Unusual Class at The Rat’s Hole Custom Bike Show.
The SSC was also a hit on main street and was possibly the most photographed single
bike at the Sturgis 69th Annual Bike Rally in South Dakota. The Bikers loved the SSC.
                     The Butterfly Aircraft LLC’s Business Plan


Sales Strategy

          Time frames for growth begin when the first components are ordered for
       sales, and marketing strategies are in place.

         The first stage includes facility expansion set-up and parts ordered.
       Where needed, additional staff will be hired and supplier contracts let.

         The Butterfly Aircraft LLC’s Dealers will have the SUPER SKY CYCLE and
       our other gyroplane products at many air shows and motorcycle events,
       showing them as the new generation of transportation.

          As the auto industry sets trends in automobiles, so will TBALLC set design
       trends with the SUPER SKY CYCLE.

            The motorcycle community will be a major market for the SUPER SKY
       CYCLE. The new rage will be the “Space Age Motorcycle” that fly's. A clever
       billboard advertisement will read:
                     ”The Super Sky Cycle, a motorcycle with Altitude."

5.4 Personalized Marketing Strategy

                    Our basic marketing strategy is to work with our dealers and
                customers on a one-to-one basis to ensure their supply needs are
                being met. We intend to prioritize customer service and make it a key
                component of our marketing programs. We believe that providing our
                customers with what they want, when and how they want it, is the key
                to repeat business and positive word-of-mouth advertising.

                    We will closely integrate all of our marketing and sales efforts to
                project a consistent image of our company and a consistent positioning
                of our products and services.

                    To support our marketing initiatives and product knowledge, we
                will encourage Dealers to attend as many area aircraft and motorcycle
                shows as possible to ensure we are offering the most up-to-date
                market trend information.
