Background: For two years on King Michael of Rumania has been a test pilot on the staff of an American Manufacturing a wide range of aeronautical instruments from radio composses to automatic pilots.
King Michael has an important job to do. From his own office he works in close and direct contact with the Management on aeronautical matters.
His reputation as a pilot stands high. A test pilot's job keeps him just as busy on the ground as in the air, and King Michael is not behind his fellow pilots and colleagues in giving strict attention to maintenance in the hangers and pre-checking before take-off.
Once in the air Geneva and the Alps, especially Fort Blanc, are familiar everyday sights for the King test-pilot, and after just another routine flight becomes in to a perfect landing back at his base. Then back in his runabout like any other man after a good day's work.
