TO THE AMERICAN AVIATION INDUSTRY "C-A-V-U" [[Image]] [[note]] 8 [[?]] = 16 rows [[/note]] C-A-V-U..."CEILING AND VISIBILITY UNLIMITED"...FOR THE AVIATION INDUSTRY. Thirty years ago, when members of the "Early Birds" invented and flew the world's first planes, ceiling and visibility were zero-zero. But they took off–and wrote glorious pages in aviation history. Ten years ago, when commercial air transportation began, the going was still difficult. But with the same courage, imagination and faith that had motivated the pioneers, the manufacturers and airlines staked everything on the future of American flying–and won. Thanks to these two overlapping generations of men with vision and determination, the aviation industry has arrived. Yet it can not stand still. Better equipment and methods are constantly being adopted. The public now knows it likes to fly. And the industry has an even clearer view of its own splendid destiny. Today, aviation's ceiling and visibility are indeed unlimited. Watch it soar to new heights! A SALUTE TO THE LEADERS OF WESTERN AVIATION AIRPLANE DEVELOPMENT CORP.
