STOLport

A STOLport or STOLPORT is an airport designed with STOL (Short Take-Off and Landing) operations in mind, normally having a short single runway; shorter than 5,000 feet (1,524 m). The term does not appear to be in common usage as of 2008. STOLports can only accept certain types of aircraft, often only smaller propeller aircraft, often with limits on the amount of fuel that can be taken. Examples of STOL capable aircraft utilized in scheduled passenger airline operations include de Havilland Canada DHC-6 Twin Otter and DHC-7 Dash 7 turboprop aircraft as well as smaller Britten-Norman Islander and Trislander prop aircraft. Another aircraft that has STOL capabilities is the British Aerospace BAe 146 jetliner although not to the extent of propellor-driven STOL capable aircraft.
