THE present boom in civil aviation, the interest now being shown in the establishment of aerodromes throughout the country, appears to indicate that a pocket industry is likely to spring into being for dealing with the various work necessary for the building of airports and for the preparation of sites. Particularly at the present time is America an example of what has been done in the direction of airport construction and development. Bond issues for the purpose of purchase or development of municipal airports were voted at the November election by various cities in the United States aggregating £2,000,000. One city (Detroit) voted alone £1,000,000. Other cities are building airports that will involve about 1,000,000 cu. yds. of excavation in the rendering suitable of ground for airport sites.
