THE EDUCATION OF AVIATORS
WliaJ sooina to hnva been -overlooked
IriillBcUBslng tho development or
Uio noroiihmo Ih tho education of tho
aviator himself. At llrat man did not
know what could he done (with Ills
new toy. I remember distinctly only
.( far iiaek a 1'JJO nt Uolmoiit Park
(ho avlatora would look tip at tho
ffiiR over tho hangers and It they
vvoro Htlrred b more than a hrcnth of
wind thoy refused to take tho air
Nowaday a flyer niUBt bo poor In-
deed If ho cannot manage to hniidlo
hi machine lu u no-mllo wind while
a good maiLV flight havo boon mndo
In wind tlp.it havo a voloolty of a
mllo a minute or greater.
The rotnmkablo ndvanco of aviation
therefore. Is reallv due. not so much
to tho development Of the aeroplane
itself either mechanically or aerody-
iinmlcally aa to tho ierfectlon of tho
motor nnd the education or thp avia-
tor. Thoro Is no question but what an
aviator of toitav eoitlrt tnko ono of tho
machine mndo in IU08 and do stunts
which vvoro not thought posBtlde at
the time tho machine was constructed.
Aviator have learned more about tho
invisible current and the possibilities
of tholr mucliIucB and hnvo become
moro mid moro dorhiK ns timo went
on. Furthermore aa soon n compe-
tition nppeurqd and ono aviator wa
placed against another each ono wan
goaded on and on to take greater
risks. Thl proeosa developed tho ex-
hibition blrdman as you soo hi in today.

markable part of It all 1 that the ho-
