A discussion of air transportation in low-density areas is presented, with emphasis on STOL operations. Low-density market characteristics in the United States are described and aircraft suitable for these markets are compared. Some existing STOL operations are reviewed including the Norwegian STOL services in some detail. It is concluded that a STOL system is an attractive investment in the isolated, low-density areas of the world.
