Abstract : This report has been compiled to inform interested persons of the current status and thinking associated with the circular aircraft runway concept. It is a new concept and an exciting one to contemplate. Perhaps it will never come into being, but regardless, the authors hope that this pamphlet will stimulate further thought on the subject, both pro and con. Admittedly the report has been written with a positive approach to the subject. Essentially, we feel the idea has definite merit and deserves further investigation by any person or organization which might profit by its application.
