7. Charter Flights - Three of New York Airways' helicopters will be equipped with "lift devices." The availability of these machines should be made known at least throughout the eastern half of the United States for short term contracts (subject to schedule requirements) and any place in the world (subject to equipment replacement) for long term contracts. In addition, also subject to schedule requirements, all of New York Airways' helicopters are also available for special charter operations in the New York Authority or the Directors of Long Island Light and Power. (Primary responsibility. Wheatland; Baur)

8. Special Public Service - In case of catastrophe, New York Airways' helicopters are available for survey, photographic or rescue work depending upon the circumstances. Information to this effect should be made known as broad a basis as possible. (Primary responsibility: Gallagher; Wheatland; Baur)

9. Flight Training- Again, subject to schedule requirements, New York Airways 'helicopters and personnel are available for flight training including IFR at well as VFR. Similarly mechanics can be trained in helicopter maintenance and overhaul procedures. (Primary responsibility: Gallagher; Conley)

10. Inauguration of IFR Schedules- This matter represents over twelve years of hard work. It must be expedited in every way possible. The 95% performance factor of the last several weeks and the resultant passenger load factor underscore this.
