At first aviation development was motivated by the large prizes put up by publicity-seeking newspapers; but the outbreak of World War I in 1914 provided far greater motivation for aviation research and development see air forces.
The cessation of hostilities made available a large number of aircraft that could be bought cheaply, and the result was a great deal of aviation activity; barnstorming and stunt-flying kept aviation before the eyes of the public for a time, but the real stimulus was the initiation of airmail service in the mid-1920s.

The aviation collaborative scheme model of Clark and Schaefer (1987), identifies the aviation constraints that are present in that environment and the production systems of Anderson (1983), which were originally used to support "theoretical accounts of human performance" (Klahr et al.
