THE rapid growth and development of the aircraft industry has necessitated prompt decision and action in handling the many problems in connexion with the erection and equipment of aerodrome buildings, hangars, workshops and factories. In the urgency of providing the industry with all its varied requirements, it is not surprising that lire insurance planning has to a very large extent been crowded out. There are, no doubt, several reasons for this and in the welter of plans and designs that have been drawn and re‐drawn, the necessity of complying with the clients' requirements, numerous rules and regulations of local authorities and Acts of Parliament, etc., the benefits which accrue to wise planning from a fire insurance point of view have not always been fully appreciated. The need for increased output has in many cases pressed very heavily on those making the necessary preparations, and frequently no serious thought has been given to fire insurance planning. There are some persons who are under the impression that, having conformed with the numerous rules and requirements, they have carried out all that can be done in this direction.
