which have seriously ruffled congres

Aviation Forging Ahead
Despite The Depression
Government Air Contracts Trimmed Slightly, But In
creased Passenger Business In 1932 Expected To
Overcome That, In Opinion of Mr. Babson
BY ko<;er w. babson,

Babson Park. Mass., May 14.—1 am
often asked: "How about aviation?
Do you still think It has a great fu
ture or has the depression ruined its
prospects?" My answer is that the
figures speak for themselves. 18 per
cent more passengers, 14 per cent
more mail, and 200 per cent more ex
press were carried In 1931 than in
1930. In 1932, judging by the increase
for the first four months, at least 20
per cent more passengers and mail
will be flown than last year. This
year a total of over 50,000,000 miles
will be flown on regular domestic
airline routes as against 43,000.000 in
1931. and 36.000,000 in 1930. Hence, not
withstanding the many difficulties
aviation has experienced in the past
two years, the underlying trend is
still forward, even though profits have
suffered in the readjustment.
Like every new industry, aircraft
manufacture tried to grow too fast.
From its over-expanded condition in
1929, a readjustment’ was inevitable,
anyway. The depression simply speed
ed up the process. As a result, the in-

dustry as a whole is now in a far
more sound position for permanent
growth. Weaker units and marginal
producers have been eliminated from

(here were 82 aircraft manufacturers
as against 101 in 1929. Os these 82
only 16 were actively operating. In
other words, the number of active
plants making airplanes is about 50
per cent less than it was three years
ago. Hence, instead of great surplus
production over sales, as In 1928 and
1929, production is running below
sales. In the twenty-four months end
ing December 31, 1931, 5,078 planes
were made and 5.594 were sold. This
is a healthy situation. It means that

Meets An Kconotnte Need.
I am optimistic on the long term
future of the aviation industry, be
cause it is meeting a fundamental
economic need—the need for speedy
transportation. To provide speed in
any form of transportation coats
money, but it costs more for the
steamships and railroads to increase
their speed than it does the airlines.
In fact, regardless of cost, these other
forms of transportation can never ap
proach the speeds possible by air
plane. To build a steamship that will
make 28 knots an hour costs twice
as much to make one capable of 21
knots an hour. The railroads, In order
to meet airplane competition, have in
creased their speeds to the limit of
safety. Heavier tracks, heavier loco
motives. and other large capital in
vestments are necessary. Even with
these the railroads can never serious
ly compete in speed with the airplane.
In fact, present air transport speeds,
it is estimated, can be doubled or
tripled with safety and with moderate
additional cost.
Conservation or time in travel, par
ticularly for business men, is now re
cognized as a factor in lower costs.
Now that the airplanes have got rates
down to where they are approximate
ly equal to railroad plus Pullman
fares, the volume of traffic will
steadily Increase. As time goes on, the
air transport companies will be less
and less dependent upon air mail con
tracts and icceive more and more of
their revenues from passenger travel.
Whereas five years ago passenger re
venues were an insignificant part of
th transport lines’ incomes, in 1932
they will be at least one-fourth of the
total receipts. Even though the in
come from air mall will be lower ow
ing to reduced Government appro
priations. the prospective gain in pas
senger revenue should more than off
set the reduction. Hence, transport
companies should show better operat
ing results in 1932 than they did a
year ago.
Growth of Air Mail and Express.
The air mail is the government's
method of fostering the development
of commercial aviation. It has grown
tremendously. Air mail mileage flown
last year was 28.281.042. a gain of
70 per cent over 1930. Owing to lower
contract rates, however, total pay
ments to air carriers increased only
half as much. With a smaller govern
ment appropriation for the next fiscal
year, average payments to individual
operators will probably be around
$0.50 a mile against the current rate
of about $0 60. While the air mail busi
ness affords a backbone of revenues,
the greatest opportunity for aviation
expansion lies in passenger transport.
As In the case of the railroads and
steamship lines, the carrying of mail
by air will ultimately reach a satura
tion point and maintain a steady level
of revenues. Air express is rapidly in
creasing. but still amounts to only
about one per cent of the gross re
venues. As this business develops over
future years and separate cargo
planes come into operation, express
traffic offers an opportunity for
worthwhile growth. The real growth
prospects, however, are in personal
I am optimistic on the future of
aviation for the reason that the in
dustry has done a thorough house
cleaning. Economies both in manu
facturing an din transport lines have
been effected. General efficiency has
increased. „Moreover, the companies
now ngaged in the industry fully ap
