STUDY OF AIRCRAFT IN SHORT HAUL TRANSPORTATION SYSTEMS

The intend of this study is to evaluate short-haul transport aircraft, of a more advanced technology than has been assumed in other studies, in operation in several assumed transportation systems in the 1985 period. These systems are limited to intercity operation; intracity use of any of these designs is not considered in this study. Thus this study is not concerned with markets where city-pair trip distance is less than 30 miles. The study is one in which various advanced conceptual aircraft, ranging from vertical takeoff and landing (VTOL) through short takeoff and landing (STOL) to conventional takeoff and landing (CTOL) types, are assessed for their relative suitability to perform short-haul transport missions.
