This paper describes the work of the Radio Technical Commission for Aeronautics (RTCA) as of March, 1949, the time of its presentation before the 1949 IRE Convention. The author's response to the word "influence" in the title given him is simply that the influence of an organization is proportional to the service it renders. As the RTCA exists solely to render service, it does have potential influence. The paper explains something about the service which the organization provides.
