Reflections on Paris

Aircraft Engineering and Aerospace Technology

ISSN: 0002-2667

Article publication date: 1 June 1949



THE principal feature of this issue is the customary survey by our Technical Editor of the eighteenth biennial Paris Aero Salon—the second since the War. There is no doubt whatever in our minds that French enterprise in reviving these historic exhibitions not confined to national products but thrown open to the world's aircraft industries, and thus truly international in scope, is most admirable. They give what is in these days a unique opportunity for the collection in one place at the same time of the products of all such nations as care to take advantage of the facilities offered, which cannot but benefit all concerned. For visitors from other countries to be able to learn what types of aeroplane are being developed in Czechoslovakia, Italy, Switzerland and Turkey, for instance, as well as the more familiar productions of France, the Netherlands, Great Britain and the United States of America is essentially helpful to them.
