PRODUCTION must be controlled through exact knowledge of what is to be done, how it is to be done, by whom it is to be done, and when it is to be done. The first two (What and How) will be embodied in : (1) Drawings of the parts and assemblies. (2) Definite Specifications of the material, labor, machines, and tools required.

Production in the Travel Air Factory

THE factory of the Travel Air Manufacturing Co., Wichita, Kan., is in two sections.: The two buildings, each 75 ft. wide and about 250 ft. long are set end to end so that they are, to all intents and purposes, one long building with an open court in the center.

The Merits of Aviation Natural Gasoline

FOR some years past the need has existed for a more volatile fuel than domestic aviation gasoline. This need has been felt more keenly during the last two or three years since the later types of high compression engines, and especially the radial, air cooled engines, which admittedly present more or less of a problem as regards even fuel distribution and operating temperature control, have come into general use.

Side Slips

The newspapers state that signs are being posted in the French air liners warning the passenger to “Wait until the airplane alights.” Some other famous signs might be appropriate too, with proper aeronautical revisions, such as “Don’t shoot the pilot, he’s dong his best.”
