TO the originator of the policy of advancing aviation by making the country “air‐minded” 1929 must seem, as he looks back on it, an outstanding year. And of all the items that call for record in the review probably the most significant is the start from Croydon on March 30 of the first Imperial Air Mail to India, later developed into a passenger‐carrying service. Like all new enterprises it has met with criticism. The mail takes eight days to reach Karachi by air, three days more by land to Bombay, and longer to other parts of India. It must be met by an internal Indian Air Mail.
