	 aboard the Empresses
No both tubs or billiord tobies yet
, . . oboord Conodiqn Pacific's Super
DC-6B Empresses—but procticolly every
thing else for your comfort ond
convenience.
In the realm of air travel, between the world's
four, far-distant corners, your Canadian Pacific
Empress has no peer. Equipped with science's most
modern navigation aids, piloted by "million-miler"
crews, no other aircraft made spans CPA's
non-stop routes with such ease and smoothness. This sleek silver giant has proven its worth with
no less than 36 major airlines around the world.

-—-
Never before such restful travel! Note the color
scheme, custom-designed in warm, relaxing tones.
Stroll the deep carpeted aisle... see how your Empress
is perfectly fitted for joint first class and tourist
services . . . that sociability with fellow passengers
... see the galley, a whole kitchen full of modern
gadgets compressed to air travel size, to service
1 or 70 passengers conveniently. The bar is open
to both services from take-off to destination.
There's your special Loungeaire Chair,
unmatched in travel anywhere. Flying first class?
It reclines way down—down almost to bed level-
and almost bed size! Going tourist? Sink far, far
back, and relax completely in contour-moulded
foam rubber cushioning. Loungeaires are
exclusive with Canadian Pacific.
Comfort? You've never had it so easy. Every
90 seconds there's a change of air—sweet and
fresh, warmed to perfect temperature. At your seat
a personal air jet to fan you gently when you
wish. Feel like dozing? In an instant your stewardess
is beside you arranging blankets and pillows to
your perfect satisfaction. There's a washroom
a few steps away—three in all, conveniently located. SUPER DC 6B's
•-,-.: -:i
Better than home—away from home.
Canadian Pacific Super DC-6B's
offer the ultimate in travel comfort . . .
are in themselves the ultimate in
engineering perfection ...
Your Empress is among the world's largest airplanes—
and certainly the greatest. A third of a city block long,
three storeys high, just inches shorter between wingtips
than the Wright brothers' first flight on the dunes at
Kittyhawk. In all, 54 tons of precision-built, precisely
maintained aircraft that 10,000 horsepower lifts from
airports around two-thirds of the world as lightly as a
breeze-blown feather.
Soundproofing in walls and floors shield you from engine
noise. Special motor attachments minimize vibration.
Windows are view-perfect and big—16 x 18 inches in
size, and prevent formation of mist and frost.
In your Empress, the forecast's always "Fair and Warm."
Radiant heating keeps cabin temperature balmy at all
times. Cabin pressurization is so gentle and so sure, you'll
never notice the change in altitude from sea-level to
20,000 feet or so, where you'll ride smoothly, calmly,
over storms and turbulence, in sparkling sunshine and
blue skies.
Almost before you know it, you're at your destination—
rested and relaxed. It's been a journey as refreshing as
a ride in the country on a soft Spring day. Now you
know why travellers the world over choose Canadian
Pacific . . . time and time again.
