“Walter Brown was the springboard of the Airmail Act of 1930. He felt that the responsibility to encourage commercial aviation was not being carried out competitive bidding, so he scrubbed it out. This new law also produced a change in the method of computing mail pay rates which now paid the airlines for space instead of weight. Airlines then began to purchase larger aircraft, which consequently gave rise to passenger traffic. So now began the drive for passenger travel, more so than airmail travel.”
