PUBLISHER’S NEWS LETTER

Publisher’s News Letter

Observing readers may have noticed that the name of the company publishing AVIATION has been changed and new officers are to conduct the publication in the future. So that there will be no incorrect inferences drawn from these changes, a typically frank publisher’s news letter may be helpful to the readers of the paper—who after all are the makers of any publication.

THE PUBLICATION of the rules of the Daniel Guggenheim Safe-Aircraft Competition marks another forward step in the movement looking toward the better adaptation of the airplane to commercial needs. The competition makes the modest claim of seeking merely to increase the safety factor in flying, but safety, dependability and maneuverability are so closely linked that the winner of the $100,000 prize, under the requirements of the competition, will have made one of the greatest contributions to peace time aviation since the birth of mechanical flight.
