Maintenance cost studies of rotary wing commercial transport aircraft
(Cambridge, MA : Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Dept. of Aeronautics & Astronautics, Flight Transportation Laboratory, 1974, 1974)
Introduction: The vertical take-off and landing (VTOL) aircraft market has had substantial growth in the period of the last ten years when one considers the overall number of aircraft in use. The military fleet has continued ...
New directions for forecasting air travel passenger demand
(Cambridge, Mass. : Flight Transportation Laboratory, Dept. of Aeronautics and Astronautics, Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 1974, 1974)
While few will disagree that sound forecasts are an essential prerequisite to rational transportation planning and analysis, the making of these forecasts has become a complex problem with the broadening of the scope and ...
Air service to small communities-directions for the future : final report of the Workshop on Low/Medium Density Air Transportation
([Cambridge, Mass.] : M.I.T. Flight Transportation Laboratory, , 1974)
Introduction: In the decade between 1962 and 1972, certificated air service was deleted at about 250 points in the United States. In some of these cases, the service was no longer needed because of improved highway access ...

For a given network let P and N denote the set of all points and the set of all nodes respectively. Let G and T denote a cyclic network and a tree network respectively and let m denote the number of centers available. The ...
The cost of noise reduction in commercial tilt rotor aircraft
(Cambridge, Mass. : Flight Transportation Laboratory, Massachusetts Institute of Technology, , 1974)
The relationship between direct operating cost and departure noise annoyance was developed for commercial tilt rotor aircraft. This was accomplished by generating a series of tilt rotor aircraft designs to meet various ...
