THE FEDERAL TURNAROUND ON AID TO AIRPORTS 1926-38
This short study--the second in a contemplated series of FAA historical monographs dealing with the evolution of the Federal role in civil aviation--examines the course of events that convinced congress, some 12 years after the Air Commerce Act's enactment, that civil airports fulfilled a broader function than merely serving their own communities and constituted, therefore, an area of Federal interest. The rationale for this turnaround underlies the long-standing program of Federal assistance to airports--assistance now taken for granted. Today, the Airport and Airway Development Act authorizes Federal spending for civil airport development and planning of up to $280 million annually.
