HERE'S BALDY TALKIN When Ozark Airlines begin service to Austin they want to provide the type of service that can be depended upon under practically all conditions. For that reason they are delaying starting service until the Civil Aeronautics Administration approves our IVOR for instrument let down. That means being able to "tune in'' our airport radio beacon and then be able to come down through overcast clouds to our airport. This is not permitted now, not because our TVOR is not functioning properly but the C.A.A. wants it checked under all possible conditions before they give their approval. The. State Department of Aeronautics is now proceeding with both ground and air tests to be sure our radio equipment is performing properly so the C.A.A. can make their tests prior to granting permission. Ozark said they would start service to Austin thirty days following the 1st of the month after receiving notice of approval of our facilities. It will take them that long to install all of their equipment and arrange schedules so that we can have convenient Chicago service as well as North-South service. C, R.
