Abstract : For each city pair, ranges of VTOL block times and fares were assumed and for each combination of fare and block time the number of VTOL passengers before and after VTOL speed stimulation were calculated. Then for each fare and block time combination, the number of aircraft required to carry the VTOL passengers (after speed stimulation) was calculated for a variety of aircraft seating capacities, and the associated daily round-trip frequency was presented.
