Where Is My Wandering Market Today?

SPEAKING GENERALLY, the American aeronautical industry is divided into two classes of members . . . the optimists and the pessimists. However, between these two extremes is another group, a very small group, composed of people who are keeping their eyes on the ball and are neither optimistic, nor pessimistic regarding the results of their efforts.

The New Detroit City Airport

A FITTING EXAMPLE of how marshy, bushcovered wastelands can be converted into a public work arousing civic pride is the new Detroit City Airport on which the Motor City is being held this week, the third annual All-American Aircraft Show.


Selling the De Luxe Plane Market

WE OF THE INDUSTRY have always tended to he a bit romantic about this aviation business, and have too often treated the job of selling airplanes as an avocation, rather than a bread and butter vocation. Our general tendency during the years in which aviation has been growing up, was to fly and get others to fly, let the money take care of itself.
