1934 Air Mail Contract Suspended

By 1934 the airline industry was rapidly developing thanks to the air mail contracts that it was being awarded. The contracts were often awarded on a non-competative basis and were quickly establishing monopolies in different areas. President Roosevelt ordered the suspension of all air mail contracts and ordered the army to begin flying the mail.
