Perfect Efficiency Mark For August.

When Capt. P.D.Iverson taxied the southbound Barkley Grow airliner to a stop at the Regina airport ramp and switched off the engines shortly before 8:10 pm Tuesday his actions signaled the completion of a record by the Saskatchewan division of  Canadian Pacific Airlines. With this trip the pilots and planes of the prairie airline and office staffs made a new efficiency record.

Two Beechcraft and one Barkley-Grow type airliners, the former carrying six passengers and the latter eight, fly the route. Two-way radio communication is maintained in the air, planes are equipped with radio compasses. One flight originates daily in the morning from Regina and terminates at North Battleford with stops at Moose Jaw, Saskatoon and Price Albert, with a return flight in the evening. Another flight originates at Saskatoon, calls at Moose Jaw and ends at Regina, with a return flight the same day.

For the month of August, they had flown 31,636 miles, or roughly, the equivalent of one and a quarter times around the world at the equator. Not one scheduled mile had been lost. Six hundred and ninety-one passengers had been carried.

Since the formation five years ago personnel has grown from 23 to 38, included are three captains, three first officers. Air distance between Regina and North Battleford is 366 miles. It is flown in two hours and 50 minutes.
