This is the main volume of the final report from a study performed by RAND Europe for the Netherlands Ministry of Transport, Public Works and Water Management; Ministry of Housing, Spatial Planning and Environment; and Ministry of Economic Affairs in support of their jointly-sponsored project called "Future of Dutch Civil Aviation Infrastructure." The study constructed several possible future worlds in which the Dutch civil aviation system might have to function after the year 2025. For each of those worlds, it assessed the infrastructure options that would enable the demand for air transport to be accommodated, identified their positive and negative attributes, and drew conclusions about them. This volume summarizes the work performed on the study.
This report is part of the RAND Corporation draft series. The unrestricted draft was a product of the RAND Corporation from 1993 to 2003 that represented preliminary or prepublication versions of other more formal RAND products for distribution to appropriate external audiences. The draft could be considered similar to an academic discussion paper. Although unrestricted drafts had been approved for circulation, they were not usually formally edited or peer reviewed.
