Several Factors In his statement to the stock holders and employees of Pied mont Aviation, Inc., President T. H. Davis attributed the increase in revenue to several outstand ing developments. Foremost of these was the start in June of airline service over the new routes awarded the company by the Civil Aeronautics Board, via the Piedmont Area Case. The full operation of Pied mont’s new fleet of Martin 404 aircraft also contributed sub stantially to the airline division’s traffic growth. Added to the F-27 Pacemakers already in service, the modern equipment afforded greater speed, capacity, and pass enger comfort than the DC-3’s formerly in use. General ATiation Earnings from Piedmont’s General Aviation Divisions were also reported in the interim statement.
