The Cost of Successful National Distribution

The Cost of Successful National Distribution

UNTIL THE last few months airplane manufacturers have been concerned more with the refining of their products and stabilizing and lowering costs of production, than with the problem of national distribution. Failure to consider the cost of distribution is said by some to be the real cause of many small manufacturers going to the wall; the retail selling price was based more upon manufacturing costs than upon selling costs.

AIRPORTS AND AIRWAYS

Los Angeles, Calif.

The fact that Los Angeles was the fiftieth city visited by Col. Charles A. Lindbergh on his tour of the country, did not dim the enthusiasm of his reception by the people of Los Angeles. Following Colonel Lindbergh’s own wishes, original plans to have him land at Clover Field were altered in order that he might honor Western Air Express, air mail contractors for the Los Angeles-Salt Lake City route, and land at the home port of that organization, Vail Field.

Design Your Own Airfoils

Design Your Own Airfoils

MOST OF the successful airplanes in the United States use airfoils designed by Colonel Clark. Among the most commonly used of his airfoils are the U.S.A. 27 and the Clark V and Clark Y series. These have been used on Colonel Lindbergh’s Ryan monoplane and many others of the more successful commercial strut-braced monoplanes; the Vought “Corsair”, the Navy PN-10, and the Wright “Apache”, all holding world’s records; the Glenn Martin Navy T3M, the National Air Transport Mail and Express Planes, the Douglas “Round-the-World” cruisers, the Curtiss Pursuit and the Curtiss Observation, the Consolidated Army and Navy training planes, the Consolidated “Courier”, the Douglas Mail Planes and the Douglas Observation and Transport planes, and on many other successful Military, Naval and commercial planes.
