Manufacturers and operators both must contend with the problems encountered in the new, but developing, commercial helicopter operation. These problems manifest themselves mainly in low financial returns. This paper concerns itself with the manufacturer’s point of view of what lies ahead.
Design, maintenance, and performance are considered on the basis of the future of VTOL operation.
