THE DEVELOPMENT OF THE STOL CONCEPT AND ITS FUTURE APPLICATIONS

EFFICIENT UTILIZATION OF STOL AIRCRAFT CAPABILITIES FOR CIVIL TRANSPORT APPLICATIONS IS DISCUSSED FROM THE VIEW POINTS OF OPTIMUM AIRCRAFT DESIGN CONCEPTS, NOISE REDUCTION MEASURES, AND TERMINAL FACILITY REQUIREMENTS. POTENTIAL USES OF STOL AIRCRAFT IN SUPPLEMENTING EXISTING AIRPORTS, PROVIDING SERVICE TO SMALLER CITIES, AND DISTRIBUTING AIR TRAFFIC THROUGHOUT LARGE URBAN AREAS ARE USED TO DEFINE OPTIMUM SPECIFICATIONS FOR TERMINAL LOCATIONS, RUNWAY LENGTH, SURFACE TRANSIT CONNECTIONS, AND SCHEDULING OPERATIONS. /IAA/
