Happy Monday !
Starting the week with the weekly fun fact, this time regarding the creation of airspace.
It all started back in the 1920s when the most prominent pilots in the United States were actually mailmen. These guys would fly by-planes from coast-to-coast along the original transcontinental airway.
In 1927, having realized the business potential of passenger air travel, the Department of Commerce took control of the airway from the U.S. Postal Service, and the nation's first air traffic control tower opened three years later in Cleveland. Before that, pilots relied on hand signals or flags—even giant arrows—on the ground for signals. Aside from that single superhighway connecting the coasts, though, all of America's airspace remained uncontrolled.
That started to change in the early 30s, when instrument flying became the thing to do. After Jimmy Doolittle's first blind flight in 1929 proved that technology could guide pilots through the skies, the government took a keen interest in regulating air traffic. With backing from the Department of Commerce, which was overseeing aviation at the time, four of the country's top airlines—American, United, Eastern and TWA—opened the first full-blown air traffic control facility to watch over the sky above Newark, New Jersey in 1935. Similar facilities opened in Chicago and Cleveland soon thereafter.
