SUMMARY AND ANALYSIS OF FEASIBILITY-STUDY DESIGNS OF V/STOL TRANSPORT AIRCRAFT

Studies of the technical feasibility of V/STOL concepts for commercial short haul transport aircraft emphasizing the technical aspects of aircraft design have been completed. Various VTOL and STOL short haul transport concepts are compared in terms of design gross weight, direct operating cost, gust sensitivity, and perceived noise levels; the impact on this comparison of design range requirements, austere design philosophy, advanced technology, nonproductive time, and other considerations is included.
