Existing short haul modes of transportation are projected to grow at a lesser rate than demand for inter-urban travel, opening a new market for the air transport industry. STOL transportation systems could satisfy this need, but their success depends on improvements in technology and service efficiency that will make them acceptable for use in central business district terminals. The inauguration of this new air transport mode could remove erstwhile constraints of terrain that hinder some regional development.
