Sambell, K. W. Conceptual Design Study of 1985 Commercial Tilt Rotor Transports. Volume 3: STOL Design Summary Bell Helicopter Company April 1, 1976

Abstract:
A conceptual design study is presented of 1985 commercial tilt rotor STOL transports for a NASA 200 n. mi. (370 km) STOL Mission. A 100-passenger STOL Variant (Bell D313) of the Phase I VTOL Tilt Rotor Aircraft is defined. Aircraft characteristics are given; with the aircraft redesigned to meet 2,000-foot (610 m) field criteria, with emphasis on low fuel consumption and low direct operating cost. The 100-passenger STOL Tilt Rotor Aircraft was analyzed for performance, weights, economics, handling qualities, noise footprint and aeroelastic stability.
