For Human Locomotion

IN the "Outline of History", H.G. Wells writes that "by 1909 the aeroplane was available for human locomotion." It is an interesting coincidence that since 1909 exactly, The Glenn L. Martin Company has been building quality aircraft.

Without discounting the vital importance of airplanes in military and strictly governmental use, it seems certain that man's most useful exploitation of the air is destined to be as a medium for his own transportation in commerce and industry.

With this end in view, Martion Margins of Safety have not only been maintained since 1909 at an usually high point, but are being steadily advanced toady to new standards. Martin engineering practice is an ever-growing power for the improvement of human locomotion.
