SHORT AIRFIELD ASSISTED LANDING AND TAKEOFF FOR COMMERCIAL AIRCRAFT

During recent years the technology of launching and arresting aircraft aboard aircraft carriers has been applied to land based runway operations. Such application results in remarkably short runways, excellent safety considerations, and accelerations which are essentially similar to peak conditions of current commercial aircraft operations. Present military equipment for assisted takeoff and landing is briefly explained and illustrated, and applications to large commercial jet transports, as well as small commercial aircraft, are examined.
