ROBERT OSBORN
Mr. R.A.S. of New York writes in to complain that the Bureau of Air Commerce appears to be issuing pilot’s licenses to persons who are too young, and he thinks that a recent accident may have been caused by the pilot trying to fly with a lollypop in one hand.

AMERICA is justly proud of her commercial air transport. None other of her industries has made such brilliant progress in so short a time. No other has ever attracted to it such a distinguished clientele,—nor drawn into its ranks such enthusiastic and outstandingly competent talent.

WAY BACK IN 1934 American Airline’s Ralph Damon, then president of Curtiss-Wright’s St. Louis division, found a unique answer to that withering domestic question, “Where have you been all night?” The answer, (not recommended for general application), was “In the mock-up.”

<p>PASSENGERS SLEEPING COMFORTABLY IN AIRPLANES cruising close to 200 miles an hour are beginning to complain of being awakened by over-enthusiastic snoring or the click of a reading light switch from the far end of the cabin. No surprise then if companies operating the latest Douglas DSTs must soon display the familiar “Quiet is requested for the benefit of those who have retired” sign in night flying airliners.</p>

Frank E. Gannett
ONLY A FEW YEARS AGO I foolishly said I would never fly. I thought that aviation was not safe and I had too many responsibilities to take any chances in the air. However, I was persuaded to take a little spin over Lake George in an amphibian plane owned by Noel Macy who had an exceptionally good pilot from the Sikorsky factory.

D. J. Brimm
IT MAY SEEM that a disproportionate amount of space has been given to handling on the water, but this is the most important part of seaplane flying. In the air, a seaplane is the same as any other airplane, and, under normal conditions, there is no very great difference in take-off and landing.

AMERICAN AVIATION HAS BEEN DISTINGUISHED TO DATE chiefly for the development of outstanding commercial airplanes, with certain exceptions of a military nature. It is a sad commentary on the state of the times that the opposite condition is true of Europe, where the outstanding products of her aviation industry, with certain notable exceptions, have been military aircraft.
