Description

FOREWORD

 

No year in the history of the American aircraft industry has been marked by more manifestations of aeronautical progress than 1955. Not only has there been tangible evidence of this progress, but advanced and accelerated research and development have opened the doors to unexplored avenues of progress in such fields as earth satellite, the thermal barrier, atomic - powered aircraft and the inter - continental ballistics missile.

 

Guided missile development and production have forged ahead and the programmes of the armed services for these weapons clearly reflect the high order of importance attached to them. All types of jet and rocket power plants of vastly greater output are in production or under development.

 

Experimental convertiplanes, combining the advantages of helicopters and airplanes, have made their appearance. The principle of wingless vertical flight, both ducted fan and jet, has been introduced. Progress in the development and operational use of helicopters continues at a gratifying pace. Turbojet and turboprop powered commercial airliners of American manufacture are now entering production.

 

( ... ) This edition of the Aircraft Year Book reports not only on the aircraft industry, but on many other aspects of major aviation achievement. The activities of the Air Force, Naval Aviation, the Marine Air Arm, and Army Aviation are included. The Year Book likewise deals with the work of other government departments and agencies. It reviews the great progress of the commercial airlines, which flew some 42 - million passengers 24,409, - 470,000 passenger miles. It gives coverage to utility aircraft and their progress as servants of business, industry and agriculture, and on the development of the helicopter, both in its military role and its bright commercial future.

 

The Aircraft Industries Association believes that the 1955 edition of the Aircraft Year Book will contribute, as have the 36 which have preceded it, to a more complete public understanding of aviation and its relation to the general welfare, prosperity and security of our country.

 

Admiral DeWitt C. Ramsey ( USN, Ret. )
