THE Paris Aero Show is unique in that it is a regular exhibition, held every two years, thus permitting continuous comparisons of tendencies in design its history being closely identified with technical progress. The 1932 exhibition is organised, as usual, by the Chambre Syndicate des Industries...
WHATEVER may be thought of the practical utility of attempting to fly from one point on the earth's surface to another with the minimum number of stops, the minimum amount of sleep, and in the minimum time, such performances as that of Mrs. J. A. Mollison can arouse nothing but admiration as...
THE following notes, principally for the use of ground engineers, refer to the supercharging of the fourstroke cycle petrol engine twostroke cycle engines and compression ignition engines are not here dealt with.
IT has been well known that for some ten years paststarting actually in 1921extensive researches have been carried out under the auspices of the Aeronautical Research Committee into the design of compressionignition engines for aircraft. Experiments have been in progress at the Royal Aircraft...
FROM time to time alternative methods of generating thrust have been proposed, but for a variety of reasons early promise has failed to mature and the airscrew remains without an important challenger as the best available means of impelling an aircraft through the air.
THE following extended summary of a Report and Memorandum recently issued by the Aeronautical Research Committee is printed here instead of in the ordinary pages devoted to Research Reports and Memoranda, where it would of necessity have to be very considerably abbreviated, owing to the interest...
Under this heading are published regularly abstracts of all Reports and Memoranda of the Aeronautical Research Committee, Reports and Technical Notes of the U.S. National Advisory Committee for Aeronautics, and publications of other similar research bodies as issued

THE term fabrication is perhaps the best description of present methods of aircraft manufacture. Production, in the American sense of continuous output of standardised details and assemblies, is, fortunately for our versatile designers, a production ideal of the future. On the other hand, the...
IN the last few years a considerable amount of research work has been carried out on the manufacturing possibilities of special steels for aircraft construction suitable for welding. At the present time welding enters not only into the detail component parts of aircraft but is becoming much more...
