Abstract

An analysis was conducted to examine the market visibility of small aircraft as a transportation mode in competition with automobile and scheduled commercial air travel by estimating the pool of users that would potentially switch on-demand air travel due to cost/time saving. These new aircraft greatly increase the practicality of regional aircraft as a transportation mode that can avoid the congestion associated with other modes. In this research, after introducing small aircraft as a new mode of transportation, we use some modeling method such as ‘’DSM’’ (Decision Supporting Model) and ‘’TSAM’’ (Transportation System Analysis Model) to investigate and need assessment to small aircraft transportation (SAT).
