Aeronautical Finance

THE PUBLICATION of the first annual report of the Curtiss-Wright Corporation constitutes, in many respects, a remarkably interesting financial document. Aside from its chief interest as the first statement of one of the world’s premier aircraft corporations the outstanding element is the severity with which this company has written off practically all of its development and deferred charges, as well as effecting other quite drastic changes, in a relatively short period of time.

To Fly Or Not to Fly?

FOR THE MOMENT, the passenger air lines of the United States have relatively little grievance against their traffic. On the long-run basis it is still far short of being adequate, but its proportions have increased so generously in the last few months that there is hardly likely to be any better time than the present for trying experiments which may make slight temporary inroads upon the passenger list.
