I'm having trouble working out what would make a corp producing airports profitable. Mine is upgraded to 200% effectivity and quality, hiring 100%, quality of 296% and production level 115%. Welfare is on the rise again as I cancelled a salary reduction experiment, still > 100%. What I cant figure is that at a base production of 0.05 airports a month (from trade strategy page) with productivity increase = 0.6 airports a month means 1 airport every 16.7 years (ish), and 1 airport sells for 11.79B SC$ currently = 0.7B SC$ breakeven spending space a year, doesn't cover the weekly pizza, OK, maybe the pizza but no sodas. Unfortuneately the month to month production graph doesn't work properly so I can't work out how close to completion the next airport is to see if its worth supporting the corp with country funds while waiting on pay day or to get out now before the country gets saddled with corp debt when the money runs out and the corp gets closed. And the other thing thats totally done me is how come in last years profit and loss table the corp had an income of 31B, what? nearly 3 airports sold in one year? (with zero demand). I see these are long term investments but if anyone has made them profitable please steer me in the right direction. Thanks kind people.

There is no demand for airports so you wont be able to sell your product. No sales no profit.

Yup. I'd buy airports if they actually did something. Right now they are production plants for air transport corporations only.

The graph came back to life and it seems I just sold 2 airports when there was no demand!!! So I've sold out when the going was good, or at least not so bad. Bye-bye Pinky Ponks, hello Macca Pacca medical stuff.
