Abstract:

This investigation into the environmental aspects of establishing an urban air transportation system for the tri-state area of Connecticut, New Jersey, and New York for daily commuting demonstrates that air pollution and its associated physiological effects, which are created by automobile engine emissions, can be drastically reduced. Similar results pertain when STOL air transportation is substituted for automobiles to provide service for the same area to the three major airports around New York City. Further, the study shows that air pollution at a STOLport in Manhattan supporting such a system would be less than the normal background concentration, even during peak travel periods.
