Editorial

Aero Engines Under Review

THE PARIS Aero Show was, perhaps, a little more “international” as regards its display of engines than it was as far as airplanes are concerned. In addition to the thirty-two French engines exhibited, two British firms, both, curiously enough, champions of the air-cooled engine, displayed, in all, seven engines and there were, too, representatives of Italian and Czechoslovakian airplane engine constructors at the Show.

Publisher’s News Letter

Occasionally there passes out of the lives and affairs of men a rare character whose quiet and self-effacing guidance has had an important though unknown influence on the trend of some particular sphere of work. All achievement, no matter how material, is in its last analysis merely the reflection of an idea and all ideas are moulded by surroundings, opportunity and character.

Every one we have talked to seems to envy the officers making the 18,500 mile flight through the Pan-American countries.

Six hundred hours of flying over the heavily timbered national forests of Eastern Washington, Northern Idaho and in Montana as far East as the Continental divide in the Rockies, without even a minor mishap, is the 1926 record of Pilots Nick B. Mamer and George Henry, fliers in the first patrol district.
