The Case for V/STOL Aircraft in Short-Haul Transportation 700333

The case for a VTOL transport system is presented primarily against the background of European requirements, based on the use of fast low noise fan lift V/STOL aircraft.The main benefits are: 1.Passenger and airline appeal - time saving, convenience, competitive fares. 2.Community acceptance - reduced noise, reduced proliferation of large airports. 3.Operational advantages - flexibility, enhanced all-weather operation, safety and ATC. 4.Reduced investment - on a total system basis. The fan lift formula leads to a wide range of V/STOL aircraft to meet worldwide STOL, V/STOL, and VTOL requirements, with excellent long-term development prospects.
