The above-mentioned is only a small part of the enormous work that was done during 2017. Much of what we reported in the course of the year is omitted here, not to overload the digest. There are also many things that have been done and achieved over the year, however, we cannot speak about them or report on them without going into details ― trade secrets. Everything that is done in SkyWay, even a smallest step brings us closer to a new better world reality. We are creating this reality, and therefore we are confident in its inevitability.
Thanks to all who have joined us in making this world a better place. Happy New Year, wishing new routes!
