Abstract : The need and potential of an aircraft having vertical and/or short take off and landing capability (V/STOL) is considered. The technical and economic feasibility of establishing an all weather V/STOL transportation system is explored. Traffic forecasts for the V/STOL for the years 1968 through 1980 are postulated. The enroute, terminal, and approach and landing navigation system requirements for the V/STOL are analyzed. Anticipated operating costs and revenue, based on an analysis of the New York-Boston air shuttle route, are presented. (Author)
