COST/BENEFIT ANALYSIS OF SHORT TAKEOFF AND LANDING (STOL) AND VERTICAL TAKEOFF AND LANDING (VTOL) AIR TRANSPORTATION FOR THE UNITED STATES

The availability of public transportation to meet the needs of a growing population has been, and will continue to be, a major factor in the economic development of the country. One of the responsibilities of the Federal Aviation Agency is to identify the role of civil aviation in meeting the nation's transportation requirements--in part with respect to the use of Short Take Off and Landing (STOL) and Vertical Take Off and Landing V/TOL aircraft. The use of STOL and VTOL aircraft could involve the introduction of a completely new high density mass transportation system in the 1970's. The Contractor's analytical effort hereunder shall be directed toward the evaluation of the utility of introducing STOL and VTOL air transport systems beginning in the middle 1970's.
