Air Transportation

ACCOUNTS of air transportation in Europe should be read with interest in this country, but not always taken at their face value. The report, for instance, that European lines in 1924, carried nearly 100,000 passengers for a total distance of over five million miles, is of no commercial significance.

The Hardest Flying Problem MOST aeronautical enthusiasts are, at heart, irrepressible optimists. They are boosters of anything that appears to offer an opportunity of success but are so occupied boosting that they often do not realize or refuse to recognize some of the fundamental problems, which must be solved, if success is to be real and not apparent.

Publisher’s News Letter

There have been so many new readers added to the subscription list of AVIATION since this odd page was started that it may be well to mention again its intent and purpose. For some years a difficulty was encountered in editing a small paper such as an aeronautical weekly which was receiving very little advertising patronage.
