The Potentialities of VTOL Transportation Systems In the Northeast Corridor 690417
The potentialities of VTOL systems are examined in terms of cost effectiveness. A comparison of VTOL, STOL, and CTOL systems shows that the operational cost effectiveness of the VTOL system is at least competitive, and is frequently advantageous. When the costs of ground facilities, ground access time, and social penalties are added, VTOL is seen to have a significant advantage over CTOL and STOL systems.
