The study examined the technical and economic feasibility of a commuter air system satisfying the needs for improved or new air service in the Old West Region. The states in the Old West Region have a number of small communities located large distances from the region's population centers. Oftentimes it is not economically feasible to have a certified local service or trunk airline using a relatively large aircraft fulfill this need. The project addressed the service needs of the region; investigated alternative air service strategies to best meet these needs; projected commuter air service patronage in 1976 and 1985; defined route structures, aircraft, service characteristics, and attendant economics of operation; assessed airport adequacy; investigated potential savings in federal subsidies; evaluated financing needs and funding sources; and examined alternative implementation options.
