COST ANALYSIS OF SUPERSONIC TRANSPORT IN AIRLINE OPERATION

During the second phase of the supersonic transport (SST) development the Research Analysis Corporation (RAC) assisted the Federal Aviation Agency (FAA) in an investigation and analysis of the economic feasibility of the aircraft. This effort was completed 31 December 1966. Supersonic aircraft operation was simulated by RAC through use of a cost model structured to reflet the environmental (physical and social) elements to be encountered by the airlines in 1980. These operating costs served as input to the FAA economic model designed for use in determining the investment return to be realized as a result of SST development and usage.
