Abstract: This symposium presents a unique opportunity for me to discuss some of the, reasons why the Civil Aeronautics Board is interested in the latest developments and improvements in flight equipment and modern navigational techniques and developments. The Civil Aeronautics Board is the lawmaking agency for United States civil aviation. It was created with the passage of the Civil Aeronautics Act of 1938, and is an independent Federal agency, exercising its powers independently. Its decisions are reviewable by the courts but not by any Executive Department or agency, except the President who’s approval is required in decisions involving International air route cases. The Board is the smallest of all independent Federal regulatory commissions, employing about 642 people. It is headed by five members, appointed by the President.
