Executive Summary

BUSINESS OVERVIEW

Semper Sky LLC provides zero-emission options as you take flight.


SERVICE DESCRIPTION

Semper Sky LLC  bases its smart airfield laboratory in Eastern North Carolina to perform its primary mission of achieving net-zero emissions in aerospace by 2050.  Eastern North Carolina's location, landscape, and vision will help Semper Sky support North Carolina’s desire to remain “First in Flight Forever.”


BUSINESS GOALS

The LLC is postured in a way to become an official 8A Small Business by the Mid-2023.


PROPOSED TARGET MARKET / FINANCIAL OUTLOOK

Semper Sky will begin by offering General Aviation and introductory Military training programs a comparable alternative to aviation gas powered aircraft.  $3.5 million in grants and contracts awarded in the first five years of Semper Sky's existence will go into procuring aerospace assets such as owning aircraft for lease and farmland purchases for growing energy crops.


COMPETITION

Any habitat within the aerospace ecosystem unwilling to adapt to the changing aerospace environment is considered competition.  Many new capabilities enter The Valley of Death because there is no pre-planned transition between the capability and the industry it would serve.  It takes at least two parties working together to transition something.


MANAGEMENT TEAM & PRIOR EXPERIENCE

Ferguson “Juice” Dale is a minority, veteran aviation professional, and former Science & Technology Branch Manager for the USMC’s Marine Corps Warfighting Laboratory.  His inspiration to be an aviation ecopreneur came from pioneers like LtGen Frank E. Petersen Jr. and the Tuskegee Airmen.  Juice's Black History Month interview about LtGen Petersen can be found here: https://www.marines.mil/News/Marines-TV/videoid/588319/dvpTag/month/
