A PLAN FOR THE IMPROVEMENT OF SHORT-HAUL AIR TRANSPORTATION

A plan for fostering the improvement and development of the national short-haul air transportation system through the year 1976 is developed. In addition, promising areas for short-haul improvement are identified for the period 1972 through 1990. The plan and recommendations are based on a computer simulation comparison of alternative short-haul concepts which include various combinations of vehicle types and airport configurations. Measures such as air travel demand, operating costs, revenues, noise impact, and congestion relief are utilized in making these comparisons. (Author)
