U. S. SHORT HAUL PASSENGER-CARGO AIRCRAFT

The short-haul market in aviation has proven to be very difficult from an economical standpoint for both aircraft manufacturers and airline operators; however, the Administration and the Congress have stated that development of local service aviation is in the national interest. Therefore, the FFA continues to study how it may help further local service aviation. The market for short-haul aircraft has been dominated by surplus vehicles so that manufacturers have been reluctant to undertake the development of new aircraft that could better serve this specialized market. The FAA believes that the introduction of new small and economical short-haul aircraft in the local service operation can materially assist in the continuation and expansion of service to small communities by giving them modern aircraft at minimum cost.
