THE FIGURES compiled by AVIATION on the amount of commercial flying done in this country are of extreme significance. For years it has been assumed that there was no commercial aviation to speak of, in the United States. As a result, a peculiar mental attitude has been created, not only in the minds of the public at large and the government but even in the opinions of those closely connected with the aircraft industry.

It will be realized, of course, that in many cases the reports sent in by operators of commercial aircraft include the mileage covered during the year by more than one pilot, even though they may appear under a single name.

M. M. ZIMMERMAN
I HAD NEVER appreciated the business value of the airplane until I was compelled to use one in Colombia, South America. After I had flown in one for ten minutes from Ciego to Puerto Berrio, two towns on the Magdelena River, separated by a distance which would have taken me over a week to cover had I used the regular means of river transportation, I was thoroughly sold on flying and, thereafter, used the commercial plane in my business travels through Colombia where there is a well organized flying system.

THE HOLDING of the National Balloon Race from Little Rock, Ark., on April 29, has occasioned the organization of an elaborate air meet in this southwestern city, on April 29 and 30. A display of commercial and military airplanes will be one of the features of the meet which, to judge by the program which has been drawn up and the interest which centers in the location of the meet itself, should turn out to be one of the most successful air meets which has ever been held.
