Publisher: West Africa Study Circle, 2010.

The Civil Aviation Summaries, published weekly by the Air Ministry, report the opening and closing of air services, route changes, aircraft employed by various companies, quantities of loads carried and details of accidents to aircraft. During the World War II period some 2000 pages of weekly summaries were published; to reprint these in their entirety was not practical and therefore many areas are omitted - most notably the internal services of Australia, Canada, USA and South America. Although most inter-continental air services have been included, those between USA and South America have not. A useful addition to the literature of Second World War air mail services.
