THE STANDARDIZATION OF Airplane Wheels

THE TITLE obviously connotes standardization of tires, which is equally important. What then does such standardization mean, if properly done? In commercial work it may mean the difference between profit and loss on the enterprise, and in military, the difference between winning and losing a campaign.

WHAT OUR Readers Say

WHAT OUR Readers Say

I attended the Air Races at Miami and was particularly impressed with two events. One was the stunting of a Ford Tri-motor, the other an impromptu cut-switch dead stick landing directly in front of the stands. The reaction of the spectators was so different in each case that it might be of interest to note that here, and to analyze the reasons for each.

New Volumes FOR THE SHELVES

THIS 234-page book with 50 illustrations covers in a logical way the subject of Aerial Navigation, or, as the author terms it, “Avigation.” Well arranged as to subject matter, and amply indexed, it meets a timely need. The aim of the book is to draw a proper balance between the three major branches of air navigation, Piloting, Dead Reckoning, and Celestial Navigation, and this aim is clearly stated in the Introductory chapters.

How Not to Handle Accident Publicity

SOME PEOPLE will never understand the psychology of the newspaperman. Because they have little or no respect for him, they think that he can be frightened or cajoled into keeping a story out of print. They do not seem to realize that he is extremely loyal.
