Air Flights for Visitors

time ago bringing with him a passenger-carrying aeroplane
of his own special design and has established himself at the
flying field near the dairy for the purpose of afifording air flights
for Pinehurst visitors. Mr. Cole is a thoroughly experienced and
capable pilot and those desiring to indulge in this thrilling pastime
will find Mr. Cole a most careful pilot. He proposes to give short
pleasure flights from the field and also cross-country trips.
Among the first of his passengers to take cross-country trips was
C. H. Lay, of Oil City, Pa., who is making an extended visit to
Pinehurst. Mr. Lay took the trip to Charlotte, a distance of 104
miles. They left the flying field at 10 o'clock in the morning and
arrived in Charlotte at 11 :22 82 minutes for the 104 miles, or 72
miles an hour. The return trip was made in the face of a very
strong wind and required two hours to negotiate the distance. The
