A STANDARD METHOD FOR ESTIMATING VTOL OPERATING EXPENSE

The inauguration of true city-center schedules, coupled with the tremendous response from the traveling public and the continuing increase in passenger seat mile revenues for over a decade of VTOL scheduled air carrier service, is evidence of the public need and confirmation of a continuing expansion of operations with this type of aircraft. If adequate progress can be made in reducing operating expenses and lowering seat-mile costs, the VTOL aircraft will become a common mode of transportation in the metropolitan area and the short-haul transportation market. This market should increase with the rise in population and in urban living.
