The Fokker F-32 Transport Monoplane

IN ORDER to meet the demand for a transport plane of greater passenger capacity than the F-10-A, the Fokker Aircraft Corporation, Division of the General Motors Corporation, has developed the F-32, a four engined, thirty-two passenger monoplane of 22,500 lb.

Making the Airport Pay for Itself

LARGER, better and more airports is the crying need of the aviation industry today. Though we have been making rapid progress in all other directions, there is not yet a single airport in the United States that offers a landing area on which the largest planes now built can land and take off, every day in the year, with perfect safety, and which has a union passenger terminal where passengers can debark from and embark on any plane, of any airline using the port, without leaving the terminal building.

Showmanship in Scenic Air Tours

WHILE aviation has not reached a point where airplanes, flyers, parachutes and other aeronautical accessories and activities have become commonplace, nevertheless a little “showmanship” is still advisable in connection with the operation of air service, particularly that dealing with passenger hopping, scenic tours and taxi service.

Mr, Hill Breaks Out in a New Place

SENATOR BINGHAM of Connecticut needs no defense to the aeronautical world. His enormous services to American aviation are too well remembered, and too warmly appreciated, for anything of that sort. If we had to reckon only with those who have some recollection of aeronautical history, and some knowledge of the course that aeronautical development has followed, we should be content to ignore Mr. Thomas L. Hill’s astonishing outburst of last week.
