CHASE Me Down
Time now for my occasional reiteration of my CHASE concept:
The best option is to pay for a separate air network. $45.3 billion can pay
for lots of "pocket airports" for the exclusive use of the "California High
Speed Airtrain System." [CHASE] We start by funding research and
constructing of a fleet of STOL "whisperfans" with a low top speed (320-350
mph) and short range (<1800km) and then pay for their operations in a
fashion unique to public transit; full cost farebox recovery ticket pricing.
Surprisingly those prices would be less than the projected costs of the
CA-HSR fares despite the service being better.
