First CAB Office in Western Australia - Maylands, 1936

For a long time the Civil Aviation Board did not have a permanent presence in Western Australia. This was its first office in the west, opened in 1936 at Perth's Maylands aerodrome. It was staffed by Miss Moira Lynch, the first permanent CAB officer in WA. She preceded the first OIC by a few weeks.

The sign on the wall reads 'CIVIL AVIATION DEPT. /[unreadable]/<- OFFICE'.

Prior to the opening of a local Perth office, the CAB relied on occasional visits, the mail and deputising local industry personnel to carry out its regulatory functions.
