Abstract : This report documents an analysis of the effects of the introduction of civil tiltrotor (CTR) service on en route airspace loads. The analysis is intended as one in a set of analyses designed to provide information to senior decision makers and other interested parties on the potential effects of CTR service on National Airspace System performance. The analysis uses a demand scenario that addresses the introduction of CTR services into the Northeast Corridor of the United States using several simplifying assumptions. This report also includes an update on the previously published report "Civil Tiltrotor Northeast Corridor Delay Analysis (Based on the Demand Scenario Described in Civil Tiltrotor and Applications Phase II: The Commercial Passenger Market)", FAA/AOR-100/93/013. (This document is based on briefing materials developed to report on the results of this analysis. In the interest of saving money, these briefing materials have not been expanded to the full text more typical of technical reports. Instead, this document contains copies of the briefing slides and the associated briefing text.)
