JUDICIOUS standardization applied to aircraft design on a large scale co‐operative basis will form one method by which the mass production of aeroplanes may be expedited. This matter is one which has been recognized with increasing importance for many years by the services and the manufacturers, and it is one which, if handled in the proper manner, will at the same time tend both to improve the science of aircraft design and remove the aeroplane from the experimental status.
