Abstract:

An analysis was conducted to identify potential meteorological problems of terminal operations of VSTOL aircraft in built-up urban areas, and to evaluate the adequacy of existing meteorological information to achieve satisfactory development and ensure safe, expeditious operation of a VSTOL transportation system. The proposed climatological survey includes meteorological observations at three locations including a typical STOL port site and a reference site at the Seattle-Tacoma Airport.
