T L Galloway: 1125. Aircraft Concepts for Service to Small Communities. 1976.



Small communities are served by trunk, local-service, and commuter carriers having a wide variety in route structure, type of service, and economic character, operating over stage lengths less 400 statute miles. NASA studies have investigated various aircraft concepts for short haul that have potential in this market area. Aircraft concepts for this market require a careful balance of performance, technology, and design to-cost considerations. This paper summarizes some results of recent NASA sponsored air transportation system studies applicable to small community arenas.
