FUTURE OF SHORT-HAUL AIR TRANSPORT WITHIN WESTERN-EUROPE, WITH EMPHASIS ON THE ROLE OF V/STOL-AIRCRAFT

An outline is given of the future of short-haul transport in Western Europe, mainly based on a study of the Netherlands V/STOL-Working Group. The problems of the existing system using aircraft with conventional take-off and landing techniques (CTOL) to cope with the growth in passenger demand are considered. It is pointed out that the introduction of a new category of aircraft, using improved take-off and landing techniques (RTOL or STOL) can relieve these problems.
