We have long believed that the time would come when Aeronautics would need a monthly journal of its own, similar to those already possessed by other industries, specifically catering for the men engaged on the design and construction of aircraft and those occupied in research work. That is to...
A VERY interesting development in French aeroplane construction, signs of which were apparent at the Berlin show, is the appearance from the workshops of firms, hitherto specialising on widely different lines, of commercial machines with a common characteristic the American formula of a 4 or...
THE successful operation of civil aircraftin this country, at any ratedepends to a very large extent on the efficiency of the ground engineer. Anything that tends to raise the standard of ground engineering, whether it be by way of improving the knowledge of existing, or of providing a source of...
IT is scarcely possible, in anything short of a volume, to review completely the various phases of Aeronautical research during the year that has just closed the most that can be done in a short space is to mention the main directions in which that research has increased our knowledge, and to...
THE year which has seen the twentyfifth anniversary of the first flight in a mechanically propelled aeroplane, and the tenth birthday of the Royal Air Force, has been marked by notable technical achievements. It leaves us with good reasons to expect even better of 1929. While our hopes for a...
THE problem of cowling radial aircooled engines has puzzled aircraft designers since the adoption of the static radial engine. The cowling has an important effect on both the cooling of the engine and the drag of the airplane, and no reliable data on either have been available.
THE Gipsy engine is manufactured by the de Havilland Aircraft Co., Ltd., Stag Lane Aerodrome, Edgware, Middlesex, and is the result of many years' experience of the designers in the demands of civil aviation for an engine giving a high standard of efficiency and reliability, combined with...
THE stresses existing in the structure of a tail plane, in varying conditions of flight, are possibly more a matter of doubt than obtains for any other part of an aeroplane structure. The assumptions made at present are frankly conventional, but are accepted because in the past they have usually...
THE Cierva autogyro is a windmill of low pitch whose plane is inclined at a small angle to the relative wind this windmill takes the place of the wing system of an ordinary aeroplane. The windmill rotates on a ball bearing, and each blade is hinged on a ball bearing, whose axis lies in the plane...
ALTHOUGH many years ago two or three light aeroplanes were designed and constructed in Italy, these examples were not followed, and till the year 1928 there were no light 'planes in this country.
