Abstract:

In order to accomplish rapid mass calculation of demand for many combinations of aircraft type and aircraft price, the generalized city-pair results of volume III AD-677 081 were used to develop individual city-pair regression equations. These regression equations make VTOL passenger demand after stimulation a function of fare which varies directly with aircraft price and block time which varies directly with aircraft type. The coefficients of these regression equations are one of the set of inputs required in computer program AIRDEMAN to calculate aircraft demand for all 86 city pairs. Passenger demand is translated into aircraft demand by the same general conversion formula that is used in Volume III. Author
