From an analysis of a typical large airport and its growth problems, it is concluded that STOL aircraft systems are needed now-with or without high-speed ground transportation systems. It is also shown that the needed first-generation STOL aircraft can be in operation in 1975. These contemporary STOL aircraft will, however, be only a step in the evolution to improved aircraft of the future. The needs for technological improvements are discussed, and some new prospects in STOL technology are described.
