THE Detroit Show had been announced as an All‐American Aircraft Show, but it was far from being representative of the industry, as such leading companies as Douglas, Curtiss‐Wright, Sperry, Consolidated, etc., had no factory exhibits. No definitely new aeroplanes or engines were presented to the public, no examples of structural detail and very few accessories. The aviation industry in the United States is definitely a seasonal one, with the greatest sales activity in spring and early summer, and in spite of the fact that this was the first aircraft show for three years, the effort made was perfunctory. The best representation came from the manufacturers of low and medium priced “private” aeroplanes.
