In recent years several government and industry groups (DOT, CAB, NASA, M.I.T., AAC, etc.) have attampted to define policy and recommendations for the nation's short-haul low/medium density air transport needs.
This paper is an attempt to determine what plans have been recommended, what impact these plans have had on the industry, and what remains to be done. The writer found a diversity of opinions within the industry on the key elements which would form the foundation of a short-haul air transport policy.
The writer has taken the liberty of presenting his own conclusions, which he hopes will stimulate the industry into positive policy action.
