Abstract : The purpose of the study is to provide a comprehensive description of civil air transport in the USSR and to offer an appraisal of its contemporary status. Although a brief historical sketch of Soviet civil aviation has been included, the study concentrates on the 1960-1970 period. The organizational structure, operational procedures, the commercial aircraft inventory, and the prospects for future development are the major features of Soviet civil air transport that are examined.
