VERMONT AERO CLUB
AND ENGINEERS MEET
Two Organizations Hold Busi

to Listen to Interesting Ad
dresses in Which the Future
of Aviation isVicturcd
Tho Joint meetings of the Aero club of
Vermont and the Vermont Society of En
gineers u-Hiri held yesterday In this city.
Tlicro wirs n good nttendanco from ul!
parts nf tho Slate nnd both organizations
worked hard. The Aero club put In its
work toward landing places In Vermont
as tho Initial step toward Introducing
aviation on a large scale and the speakers
created much cnthuslnsm while the en
gineers nttended to their part of the pro
gram by disposing of bniilness and deal
ing with tho many problems which con
front them In th!r work.
In the morning tho engineers held a bus
iness meeting In tho roof garden of tho
Hotel Vonnont at which Prof. J. V.

President James Ilurlness f the Aero
club presided and before introducing the
first sponker apol e on the importance of
'. eryone's keeping an eye out for suita
ble landing places In Vermont." Tho d!t
eovery of ono should bo followed up by
reporting It to the club secretary, Jamo?
P Taylor ot Burlington, i
Col. O. C. Brnnt, fortnorly stationed at
Fort Ethan Allen In tho cavalry nnd now
department air service officer of the east
ern department at Fort Schuyler. N. Y
was the first speaker. Colonel Brant said
In opening that the principal trouble with
most people was that they wanted to see
ships sailing through the air before they
wero willing to take steps toward pro
curing landing places, and of course that
can never be, any more than trains can
be run before the rails nre laid. It Is Just
as ecessary to provide air harbors as It
Is to provide harbors for shjps. Already,
flying has begun In Vermont, nnd ho
mentioned tho work being done by Cap
tain II. E. Stlckney of Bellows Falls.
"The progress made In army aviation
will largely depend on tho advance made
by commercial aviation. Ono of the first
things to consider will be well-defined
aerial routes, nnd these must be dotted
with landing places. Any aviator wltl tell
you that he Is safe so long as his motor
works. But In an emergency, when tho
motor stops, ho begins to look around for
a place to get down, with a reasonable
expectation of getting down alive. In
other sections of the country fields are be
ing obtained on every hand and already
some good routes havo been provided."
Colonel Brant said that Burlington was
situated on the only route north from
New York to Canada. It Is a good route
up the Hudson, over Lako George and
Lake Champlaln and In nearly every oth
er route thextopography of the country
Is bad with forests, mountains, etc. All
that Is needed along here Is suitable land
ing places.
In bringing home to his bearers the
Importance of getting in early on thn
aviation program. Colonel Brant said:
"Every refinement In the method of
transportation tends toward speed. The
saving of time Is the big object every
where. It Is shown In the construction of
automobiles and other means of trans
portation. When it comes to this, air
transportation is the speediest method
ever invented by man. It Is only a two
hours' run from Burlington to New York
and at the prosent time air locomotion Is
as safe as land locomotion. There are 1
accidents In the services which have been
Inaugurated for commercial purposes.
"During the war safety was sacrificed
to speed and manoeuvring qualities, but
now the machines are being mnde heavier
and safer. Tho Liberty motor generated
a horse power to every two pounds of
weight but this Is not necessry now. Ms
chines are being operated which carry 12
i.aasengers with a prfect degree of safety,
no accidents having yet occurred to
them." Colo el Brnnt n? sured tho peo
ple thero that they ere safer going 100
miles nn hour in the litr thnn they wero
going 30 miles nn hour on earth, for If
anything broke en the nutomoblle they
were pretty Mire to get huit. He made it
plain that by providing landing places
rcw and thus jetting established in the
nlr traffic a munlc'pallty wns only doing
Itself a service.
Lltut. H. W. Corbln of Fouth Hero
said that he knew of people 'n New York
who wore anxious and pL-nning now to
spond their vacations In an nlrplnne trip,
but they could only go where thero were
lending places. They are not coming to
Vermont because thero is no vroYti'on
made for them. The whole 3Urcess of Ver
mont In this direction depends on getting
places wb.iro aviators can land safely.
Captain II. E. S'.lckncy of Lud'ow, who
has throe Ge.Tnaus to his credit, was
coiled on by Mr. Hardest-. He told of
tho progress modo in Sprtngflo'.d now.
Thorn nr.- three planes tho.-o'nnl a good
field. A flying school will bo opened soon.
Late;, a our of tho State- will bo made
by nlr.'Thn machines will remain In dif
ferent localities for ,-, Meek or more :id
educate th" people to the fact that ntr- j
pianos really n: and are usaful. Tlioy
will lako up piiSsongcrs. Ho had some
s'.r.tepjonts to show tho dependability of
mo ir service, Already r.'.ooo.ujo pieces
of mall hn.va been carried by a'.r, st a
mail ncrccntBh'a of tho cist of carrying
teem by rail. Ho told of the plan for In
augurating a passenger service botvvn
New York and Chicago, where passengers
can be1 tnken for $18 each. There aro at
present time 320 air .planes operated by
private enterprises In Nebraska, and
about 300 out of Chicago. Tho Middle
West Is waking im to tho possibilities of
acrlu! service and7s passing the East for
tho reason that nature provides better
landing places in that section of tho
country.
James P. Taylor spoko fnr a few min
utes and urged on all tho importance of
every man's going back homo resolved
to havo his community beenmo Interested
In securing a landing place. Information
was given out as to what tho essential
qualltles to a good landing field arc. Al
ready, men uro taking up flying hero,
nnd It Is right that places be provided
for them to land In an emorgency.
Colonel Brant, when asked mom In do
tall whnt wns required for a field, said
that a runway of at least 1,500 feet ought
to be provided.
The government specifications provide
for 1,800 feet. In France the men landed
In smaller fields. Ho told of tho field In
Albany, N. Y., which has been found to
be too small and has been abandoned for
another after about $10,000 had been spent
on It, Tim obstacles nn proporty about
It make lots of difference
If a place Is found It is dosirabla that
It be secured at once beforo any buildings
