Abstract
A best route selector for air transport of large quantities of cargo between major airfields is presented. The best route is defined as the least cost route including stopover costs: the cost is reported in flying hours, and, multiplied by the cost per flying hour should give the approximate cost of transporting 1000 tons along the route. This is a preliminary version: the data probably contain errors, and the assumptions may be reconsidered. To be of practical value it requires a system to avoid flying over hostile countries.
