  • Helps to see if the investment is viable, expect to sell enough helicopter flights, otherwise there is little point in starting the venture.

  • If estimated costs are incorrect then the analysis is inaccurate and fairly worthless. Sheena has no entrepreneurial skills and this could make the estimated costs inaccurate.
