STOL Planes

A short-takeoff-and-landing (STOL) plane departs from

a city airport. These planes need less than 150 m (500 ft)

to take off and land. They are useful for landing on small

rural runways or short commuter runways. Another

special airplane, the VTOL, takes off and lands vertically

and is useful for landing on small military ships.
