Essential features required then for the form of transportation entailed safety, speed, economy, and comfort.
Statistics show that the most prominent types of accidents in the history of flight were forced landings. This is a problem that had to be addressed. Multiengine aircrafts would address the problem. Multiengine airplane has the capability of flying with more than one engine; it is the direct answer of engine failure. However, single engine is not capable of flying when the engine is dead. The more number of engines reduces the risks of aircraft crash (Tuner, 2003).
Mr. Douglas showed a film to the institute of aeronautical sciences which showed the historical background of the first successful multiengine flights. The Fokker and ford tri-planes were the first to fly. In 1926, the post office changed the operations of the mail planes to private carrier. These resulted in private concerns, and this gave the required subsidy to allow several investors to embank on the business by carrying passengers. Ford and Fokker made the first contribution to passenger’s equipment of the lines.
The stock was given credit in air transport sector due to a rapid increase in air travel by that time. Since the money secured from the industry made considerable expansion of the facilities it led to the progressive development of the history. There was a rapid growth in that period in the ground organization of large aircrafts, and navigational facilities supplied. It was akin to the golden age of aeronautics. Early attempts such as the successful and original launch of the Lockheed pointed a possible way for the development of other flights. Beyond this, the most certain and acknowledged accomplishment have been witnessed in agencies’ concerns and contributions towards aviation, construction, and co-operative movements.
