Abstract : During the next two or three decades when the SST will be flown by the Free World's airlines, effective competition can be expected from improved subsonic airplanes as well as from the French/British Concorde. Even so, the study concludes that the market for the SST should be at least 500 airplanes; it should earn for the airlines and manufacturers a profit consistent with their risks; and the Government should recover its investment plus interest.
