Final Report - EPATS (European Personal Air Transportation System STUDY)

Project ID: 44549
Funded under: FP6-AEROSPACE


This is the final report of the EPATS project, which focused on the future highly customer oriented and time, and cost efficient air transport system. It aimed to fill niche between surface and scheduled air transport. Future mobility cannot be satisfied only through investments in hub and spoke, or rail and highway systems.

This EPATS system is expected to provide a wide choice of transportation mode, and the wider use of small aircraft, served by small airports, to create access to more communities in less time. The goal of the EPATS proposal was to demonstrate the needs and potential of small aircraft business development and to propose recommendations for the introduction of this new European Air Transportation System (ETS) in the context of the European Research Area (ERA).

The report begins with stating the project's objectives, presenting the contractors involved and the structure of the research. It later refers to major achievements and then goes into detail about the work performed under the individual work packages.
