Economic and Safety Aspects of Short Haul V/STOL Aircraft on High Density Routes 620474

Intercity automobile travel has a direct effect on the volume of short haul air travel. Automobile transportation is quicker and more economical as compared with the long ground waiting time and higher rates of short air trips. A multistop system, using the V/STOL aircraft, between cities may save passengers time by closer departure points, and increased passenger miles may reduce rates. Advantages of speed and less cost enjoyed by automobile travelers may well be offset by these developments. A mere 15% transfer of short haul trips to aircraft could result in as much as 106% increase in air revenue passenger miles.
