Airtransit's First Six Months of Operating The Canadian STOL Demonstration Service 750599

A complete STOL (Short Take-off and Landing) system is currently providing public transportation service between the urban centres of two large Canadian cities. Passenger and public reaction, plus operating experience in a competitive environment is providing some interesting data, useful in developing future STOL systems as an important component in the improvement of transportation in general. The Demonstration is showing that STOL systems are capable of quickly providing fast, convenient, short-haul service, while at the same time respecting the composite concerns of society, encompassing air-pollution, noise, land-use, energy-consumption and economics.
