DEVELOPMENT OF AIR TRANSPORTATION EVALUATION PROCESSES. VOLUME II
This second volume of the series dealing with evaluation techniques for air transportation is comprised of example problems and a case study of evaluation processes that are applicable to air transportation concerns. Example problems include airline fare, route and demand allocation analysis, scheduling of rural commuter service, and evaluation in air transportation. One of the objectives of the research being to test an evaluation issue in an actual setting, the case study involves the implementation of STOL/VTOL programs in the metropolitan area of St. Louis. Detailed conclusions are drawn in regard to dealing with the example problems and the case study. The overall conclusion, however, is that the project raised issues for further research, and proved how analytical techniques can be used to justify technological investment strategy and to specify concerns that are relevant to the analyst in developing policy programs.
