V/STOL Transport Aircraft for Intercity Passenger Movement 660318

This paper presents a discussion of some of the key considerations associated with the use of V/STOL transport aircraft for intercity passenger movement. Travel demand is related to V/STOL aircraft operations insofar as it influences the optimum terminal site location. Cost-benefit comparisons are presented from the viewpoints of: aircraft operations, airport construction, and passenger fares. The impact of V/STOL technology on existing equipment and facilities, traffic servicing standards, and flight operations is assessed.
The study reports that V/STOL aircraft will be a desirable transit mode for the regional intercity passenger market expected to become dominant during the next decades.
