Window Displays
The author, who was formerly manager of the transport section of the Aeronautical Chamber of Commerce, has discovered some fundamental principles that should be of interest to those who are charged with the duty of dressing up the ticket office windows.

William E. Berchtold
MENTION window displays to any group of airline traffic representatives, advertising managers or operating executives and you’ll bring out as many divergent views as you might expect to obtain through an inadvertent mention of the “commodity dollar” among a group of economists or bankers.

CONVENTIONAL performance testing of an airplane consists essentially of the accurate determination of two sets of maxima, maximum climb-rate and maximum level velocity at all altitudes within the airplane’s range. Aside from the technical difficulties inherent in measuring true maximum values with the required precision, a further obstacle arises in the constantly shifting properties of the earth’s atmosphere.

AT A TIME when the aeronautical industry is experiencing the worst weather in its history, with showers of dead cats and low-hanging political fogs reducing operating conditions to practically zerozero, considerable encouragement can be derived from reviewing the great technical advances which have taken place during the last year or so, not only in the design of aircraft but also in general improvement in efficiency and economy in the maintenance and servicing facilites on the ground.

UPON Capitol Hill in Washington air transport is a familiar subject, and never more familiar than during the past three months. Aircraft manufacture has an accustomed ring in the ears of Congressmen who have received proposals for five-year programs and the like and have referred them to committee and debated them to and fro ever since ’way back before the War.

To See Or Not to See
A question of considerable importance to the airplane pilot
[no value]
[no value]
[no value]
THERE are few airplane prospectuses or specifications that do not contain some such words as “the vision from the pilot’s seat is practically perfect,” or at least “practically unobstructed in all essential fields.” Unfortunately such statements are virtually meaningless, for heretofore there have been few available means to analyze pilot vision quantitatively.

CHINA has too long depended upon its few great rivers for contact with the outer world and its maze of canals for internal communication. With a nature not easily given over to radical change, she has been rather reluctant in availing herself of the Western automobile and locomotive.

VIEWING WITH ALARM is a distasteful pro cedure, and one which is always a pleasure to stop. Unfortunately we have had a lot of it to do in the last two or three months, and it is with profound relief that we seize on the chance to herald the end of the head-shaking period and the coming resumption of orderly development.

Of that total of 39 established figures, only six stand to the credit of the United States.

VISITORS to Langley Field in the years immediately following the War will recall that for a long time a pursuit airplane stood just within the gate as a sort of trademark. Always it was a machine long obsolete and condemned as unfit for flying, but always it presented a pleasantly shiny appearance to the casual visitor.

WHEN attempts were first made to build airplanes with metal, the first disposition of designers was to put a piece of metal wherever there had been a piece of wood, and to conform as exactly as possible to the structure with which they had grown familiar.

[One of the minor excitements of Washington during the past three months has been the persistent attempt to put into the widest possible circulation a series of “charts” prepared by Mr. Chessborough J. H. MacKenzie-Kennedy and purporting to prove the hopeless inferiority of American aircraft and engines to those of European design.

THE inspection, repair and cleaning of the upper wing panels of large biplanes is always a problem due to their relatively great height above the floor of hangars. It will be recalled (AVIATION, February, 1933, page 62) that a sort of bosun’s chair device was suspended from an overhead trolley rail in the Cheyenne shops of United Air Lines for convenience in getting at the top wing surfaces of the Boeing 80s formerly in use.

WHEN regrinding engine cylinders it is frequently difficult to get sufficient light inside the barrel to see clearly the condition of the finish. This problem has been eliminated in the engine shop of Transcontinental & Western Air at Kansas City by mounting an ordinary automobile headlamp on the spindle carriage of the Heald grinder with the beam focused into the open end of the cylinder.
