Schools, Services, and Airports

ALABAMA—Steadham Acker, manager of the BIRMINHAM Municipal Airport, reports that activities at that field were higher during the first six months of 1935 than during any previous period since the airport was opened four years ago.

Citing that the development of the Army-Kreusi type of blind flying equipment “adds another definite stage to the safety and convenience of flying under any and all conditions,” and that the part he played in that development is “the greatest achievement in aviation in America during the past year,” the committee on award of the Collier Trophy has selected CAPT. ALBERT FIEGENBERGER as this year’s recipient.
