Last Year's Airport Construction Projects
WHILE most other departments of aeronautical activity were having their ups and downs in 1929, the important work of constructing airports continued to forge steadily ahead in all sections of the country. There were individual cases of retrenchment here and there as modifications appeared wise in the light of changing conditions but, for the most part, the work of installing new airports and landing fields or improving established institutions made extremely gratifying progress. When the year closed the country was richer by close to $50,000,000 worth of new airport construction and approximately 108 new municipal and commercial airports in operation; which brought the total of the two classes in operation, excluding federal fields, to about 948.
