Tower and cable system should be much less expensive than a rail system. Easements should be much easier to obtain as the tower footprints would be low, and height of towers could be varied as required. As the "rail" is not supporting the weight of the craft, the distance between towers could be maximized. Of course there would still be noise that could be a problem, but electric motors and perhaps noise abating ducted fans could help.
