When compared to traditional transport aircraft within a given class size, the CPTA's life cycle costs
will be 50%, or lower, when all phases are combined.

Design and Development   Because the CPTA has far fewer parts, there is correspondingly much less work to do in the detailed design and development phase.
Acquisition   Due to its far fewer parts and significantly lower weight, the CPTA will costs much less to produce and sell.
Operational   Because of its superior ratio of payload-to-aircraft operating weight when empty (OWE), fuel efficiency per payload ton-mile is dramatically enhanced. Loading and unloading is quicker and cheaper with a faster turnaround time.
Maintenance   Fewer engines combined with fix-landing gear vs. retractable, translates into a lifetime of lower maintenance requirements.
Insurance   Lower acquisition and replacement costs equals lower insurance costs.
