Edward P. Warner
THE whole development of the equipment of military aviation is comprehended in the active flying life of one man. As a lieutenant, in 1909, Benjamin D. Foulois rode as a passenger in the flight which determined that the United States Army would buy the world’s first military airplane.

CHAMBERS of Commerce or other local civic organizations may with profit to their communities undertake the promotion of semilocal airlines even as they have backed airport developments in recent years. These semi-local airlines would be in the nature of feeders, about which much was said in the early days of the contract air mail system.

EVERY industry that has its beginning in a more or less simultaneous development of a group of widely separated units, goes through at least two distinct stages before it attains its real majority. The first might be called the development stage, where each unit works independently on problems more or less common to all, solving them in its own particular fashion.

IN a recent article (AVIATION, November, 1931, page 638) Mr. A. A. Gassner, in discussing the speed characterictics of transport airplanes, gave several formulas for the calculation of maximum speeds of airplanes with given wing and power loading The formulas were based upon those originally set up by Edward P. Warner, modi bed to take into account airplanes types of varying degrees of aerodynamic excellence.

Arthur E. Raymond
THE manufacture of any object having contours made up largely of curved lines, such as a boat, an automobile body, or the monocoque fuselage of an airplane, requires first the determination of an accurately faired set of contour lines. That is, if the object be assumed cut by families of horizontal, vertical, and transverse planes, the intersections of these planes with the body must be smooth and consistent with each other.

THE Society of Automotive Engineers has included many papers on the maintenance of aircraft in service in past aeronautical programs, but practically without exception they have come from the personnel of operating companies, The only recent departure from that general rule was made at the meeting during the Detroit Show, where John G. Lee of the American Airplane and Engine Corporation, builders of the Pilgrim, spoke on “Airplane Maintenance as the Designer Sees It.”

WE in the aviation business are a peculiar people. Ours is probably the only industry in the world which habitually seeks adverse criticism for its own services by setting up an unattainable Standard with which to compare them.

AFTER fourteen years of steady growth and steady improvement of service, the very life of the air mail is threatened. The whole structure is in danger of being swept away as an incident to the current economy campaign, and as air mail goes, so goes air transport.

FROM an early English spring to late Australian summer in eight days, eighteen hours, and 53 minutes flew Charles William Anderson Scott to regain a record taken from him last November by C. A. Butler. The same Gypsy Moth plane which he had flown from Australia last June carried him back to the Litchfield Airfield at Port Darwin in nine hours, eighteen minutes less than his previous time, which Mr. Butler had bettered by 102 minutes.

WE ARE still having the greatest difficulty in convincing newspaper men that accuracy is of particular importance in reporting aeronautical events as a word or two misplaced may change the true meaning of the entire article. Take, for example, the item in the Buffalo Evening News about the American girl who was the first to fly a Soviet-built airplane, from which item we quote as follows: “Although accompanied by a Russian pilot, Miss G. had complete charge of the controls during two of four flights.

HARD on the heels of the Model R Junior (AVIATION, March, 1932, page 148) recently announced by the Stinson Aircraft Corporation of Wayne, Mich., comes their new Airliner exhibited for the first time at the recent Detroit Aircraft Show. The short lower wing stub, used to support the landing gear of the smaller machine, appears again in the new Airliner, although its usefulness has been further extended by making it carry not only the landing gear but also the outboard engine nacelles.

TO assist in beaching Consolidated Commodores at the Dinner Key seaplane base of Pan American Airways at Miami, a special dolly has been developed, which not only supports the rear end of the hull without danger of damage to the bottom plating, but also swivels freely to permit steering the plane into any desired location in the hangar or on the apron.

AN excellent example of what may be done in the way of short line scheduled transportation with a singleengined cabin machine is afforded by the experience last year of Maine Air Transport, operating from Rockland, Me., over a 60 to 100-mile route touching a number of important points in the island-dotted Penobscot Bay region.

MR. JORDANOFF’S exposition of how to fly is addressed to much the same audience as Captain Barnard’s recent book. Mr. Jordanoff gives much less attention than most of his predecessors in the field (far too little attention, we think) to the simple theory of flight.
