Parachutes in Civil and Commercial Aviation

TWO important expressions of opinion regarding the parachute in civil and commercial aviation were voiced recently by officials in the Aeronautics Branch of the Department of Commerce. One affects parachute jumping, for purposes other than saving lives in emergencies, and the second deals with the lack of a departmental regulation requiring all passengers carried in air transports to wear the aerial life preservers. Maj. Clarence M. Young, director of aeronautics, has rendered an interpretation of the air commerce regulations and air traffic rules as they apply to parachute jumping.
