Proper Packing Methods for Export

DURING the first five months of 1928 the United States exported aeronautical products valued at $1,461,000. If these figures can be used as a criterion, the export figures for the first six months of 1928 will equal, and possibly exceed, the entire sales for the year 1927, when the United States shipped abroad $1,903,000 worth of aeronautical equipment, and which was a record year in this rapidly growing industry.

Export Figures and Trade Commissioners Reports

NOT since the first export of an American aircraft, in 1909, when the Wright brothers shipped their airplane to France, has there been such growth in aircraft foreign shipments as during the first half of the current year. In that space of time 87 airplanes, at a valuation of $940,917, were exported as compared with 19 valued at $311,610 during the first six months of 1927, and 63 at $848,568 during the whole year of 1927.

Airlines Outside of the United States

AN outstanding advantage of air transportation over other means of carriage is its speed. This is hardly worth while between two cities half an hour apart, and well served by surface transportation facilities, but its value increases progressively as the distance broadens.

Government Assistance for Aeronautic Exporters

A YOUNG industry, such as the group of aeronautic firms that have been in existance only a few years is invariably reluctant to take steps to increase its business through the medium of foreign sales. Import duties, special export crating, consular fees, the documentation involved and the matter of collections are thought of as insurmountable barriers to anyone but the experienced.

The Advantages of Selling the Foreign Markets

MUCH has been written about the value of international long distance flights by our airmen in promoting goodwill and foreign trade in general, but little attention has been given by our aircraft manufacturers even to the effect of these flights upon their export market.

Our Aircraft in Foreign Operation

THE efficiency and stamina of United States airplanes have recently been demonstrated by their operation in foreign countries. It is not surprising that the standard Army plane capable of doing an outside loop should make a favorable impression in South America.
