The Feasibility Study with an Aircraft Acquisition Study
Collaborative Module Case Study
Any aviation flight operation is comprised of experts in specific fields from a variety of organizations. The members of this group come together to collaboratively contribute their specific expertise to the overall operation in the same way pieces of a jigsaw puzzle come together to reveal the actual puzzle picture. These people all have to function at and contribute, their best in order to conduct the operation as safely and efficiently as possible. And it is not just in the field flight operations that collaborative effort is required. It is prevalent in all aspects of professional aviation operations, and elsewhere.
In Module 3, your instructor assigned you to a peer group of three or four fellow students. It is now time for that group to work collaboratively. Each group is to collectively write a Collaborative Module Case Study reviewing the principles of a Feasibility Study that includes an Aircraft Acquisition Study

This CMCS should, at a minimum, cover the following information:
1)How to determine the potential uses of a company aircraft, what information is required to do so, and how that information can be researched, gathered, and evaluated
2) How to comprehensively analyze a companys travel needs (current and future), what is required to do so, and how that information can be researched, gathered, and evaluated
