Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - May 9, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta THURSDAY, MAY 'Major Point" DYMENT STRESSES IMPORTANCE THE HERALD'S CITY NEWS PAGE PAGE SEV8N Plan Proposed Armories OF LETHBR1DGE IN T.CA SYSTEM Here Impresses Citizens 4. 4. 4, 'Hopes" To See Construction Soon Random -m Rhymes CASUAI. Lethbridfe will fee UM stop- pins point for three the types of aircraft planned for future use on Airlines routes, J. T. Drment, director engineering 'or the airlines, declared when he ad- dressed members of the JLeth- bridge Board of Trade at their regular luncheon meeting in the Marquis Hotel on Wednesday. Speakin; of the third largest of aircraft planned for use, a four-engined plane for main- line express service, he said that the craft would "just stop at major points not neces- sarily points of large popula- tion, but important points on the airlines route. Lethhridge will be just inch a stop." The airlines official said that due to the fact that she system was only established prior to the war. with, the shortage of equipment and personnel fcllwisg immediately upon the outbreak of hostilities, it had been impassible to give to the public all of the services "A'hich officials of the company had wished. that the fighting Is finished, he said, engineering departments are advancing plans to remove de- ficiencies that have existed in the sen ice. They are planning to en- able uasseagers to arrive to and from "their destinations faster: to travel with a greater degree of safety; to be more r-laxed at the end of their trips, and to have the advantage of reduced rates. Air Travel Safe Referring to the safety of air travel. Mr. Pjrment stated that it was the only factor thai had not been reduced during the v.-ar. It is twice as safe to travel in an air- lines plane than to rice in an ordi- nary passenger automobile, he said. Officials want to have enough nlanes in service to assure that on the average only 60 per cent, of the seats will be taken. This wiU do away with the need for reserva- i tions, esceas at such times as Christmas. "The engineer said that I he hoped to see airline fares re- duced to 3Vi cents a mile. That would mean that it. would be pos- sible to make the round trip from Lethbricge to England and back again for He said he expect- ed to see such rates brought in within the next three years." Is is planned to use four differ- ent types of planes on the airline, he said. The first, or smallest, will be a two-engined feeder line craft carrying from 10 to 14 passengers. The" next largest, twice as large as the first, would also have twin, engines, and would carry a load of between 30 and 40 passengers. These planes would stop at all points along the airline routs. The third largest type, which ilr. Dvment said would also ston in Lethbridge, would be about twice as big as the second twin-engined craft. It would have four motors and would carry between 60 and 70 ment is now available, and humidi- j ty control will be a feature oi the latest ventilating systetas. Improved de-icing methods lor clearing the leading edges of the wrings and fins mil be installed. Reverse-thrust propellers will permit or quicker stoos on runways, a feature which will be particularly valuable under icy conditions. Mr. Dvaaeni said he did not ex- pect that the nosse Question would be unproved until turbin-type or jet-propelled aircraft came into use. Tremendous improvements in safeiy from fire have been develop- ed since tne beginning of Use war, and all these improvements be incorporated in the peace-time air- craft. Even greater improvements will be effected in the turbine air- craft in the matter of safety from fire, as the fuel of these planes is cot so combustible. In the field of radio other wcn- derfui improvements have been made, the T.C.A. official said. Ultra-high frequencies are employ- ed which work above and beyond all static. Radar equipment will also be put to use as soon as fur- ther developments bring about a reduction of weishi which will enable the machines to be earned aboard the commercial craft. Other improvements which will shortiv be incorporated, in the air- Uce aircraft include aa absolute altimeter which gives the actual altiiude of the plane above the ground, and compasses which are not affected by instruments in thf plane. Everything possible is be- ing done to improve the comfort, of both tbe passengers and the pilot.

Pre-War Desicps _____________ Planes in use on airlines durinz moved by George Rice, K C. the next three or four years will be I largely based on pre-war designs, although they will embody ad- vances made during the war years, Mr. Dvment said. The radical new designs devel- oped during the war will not reach the stage of airline operation for from eight to ten years, he said, pointing out that it would take that length of time for all the "bugs" to be ironed out and for the planes to reach the degree of reliability demanded by the airlines. Many fine advances will be in- corporated in the interior of the aircraft, however, he saic. Cabins will be pressurized, so that the air pressure" inside them will remain -he same as that at ground level, resardless of the altitude to which the plane flies. This will obviate the necessity of feeding oxygen, and will do much to eliminate heating problems, as any leaks that may develop will be towards the outside, and not cold air leaks com- ing in- In addition, better heating equip- a. wav of living but to many remains only" an ideal.
