IT HAS been stated by well known aeronautical engineers that a good designer knowing beforehand the formula to be used in judging the Reliability Tour could have designed a plane which would necessarily have won the Tour. If this is so and planes can designed to meet a given formula, the matter should studied with the greatest care in order that the formula may develop a really practical plane of a type which needed.

BRICE H. GOLDSBOROUGH
IN MOST cross-country flights even an experienced pilot, unless he is very famliar with the ground he is flying over, is apt to follow a railroad or some main highway in order that he may not get lost. This often means a considerable detour and even at that the pilot may lose his way.

ROBERT W. A. BREWER
<p>WHEN ONE is confronted with a new design or product, the natural tendency is to criticise it from ones own viewpoint at the moment, regardless of what might have been the object of the designer. Thus, frequently a wrong conception arises in the mind of the critic, who may, incidentally, be a prospective purchaser of the product.</p>

Sometimes we absolutely despair of ever being successful in our self-appointed task of showing the manufacturers engaged in “this airplane business” how to advertise properly. After all of our talk about it in this column for the last few months, a prominent designer disregarded our advice altogether, and had the trial flights of his Trans-Atlantic plane in the same old way.

This winter is to be the critical period for the new air transport companies that have commenced operation in this country. The weather, which has so much to do with regularity of the operation of the air routes, will then have its opportunity to do its worst and the resulting delays will have a decided effect on the traffic that the lines have been able to build up.
