FEW advances in aircraft design have aroused such intense controversy as that which at present surrounds the philosophy of jet lift vertical takeoff and landing techniques. On the one hand, there are the disciples of the composite power plant system, and on the other, those who adhere to the...
THE increased mobility of modern warfare, combined with the rapid advance in the destructive power of the weapons available, requires that military aircraft should become increasingly independent of conventional bases with their Maginot Line vulnerability. Therefore, the ability to operate from...
THE ability of an aircraft to takeoff and land vertically can be achieved by a number of design techniques. Those currently favoured vary from the use of a large rotor as in the helicopter through propellerdriven tilting wings and large ducted fans to small jet lift engines. Three major design...
Examples of jetlift aircraft powered by the diverse systems of the single liftthrust turbofan and the multiengined specialized lifting and propulsion engines are now flying. With the experience gained from these pioneering aircraft, it is appropriate to review the thermodynamic characteristics...
A method of analysis for determining the transient forced flexural vibrations of accelerating missiles and space vehicles is presented. The equations of motion are in matric form and may be readily adapted to electronic digital computers. The matric formulation for the problem is written to...
THERE are few places where standards play such an essential role as in the aircraft industry, for an aircraft such as the Vickers VC10 longrange airliner is made up of many thousands of large and small components, and since the development of a new aircraft already takes many years, it can be...
AS the performance of operational fighter and bomber aircraft steadily rises, so too does the pilot's reliance on the artificial atmosphere provided by oxygen and pressurization systems for highaltitude flight. Since explosive decompression at altitudes of the order of 50,000 ft. and above can...
MORE than 200 delegates and observers from sixteen countries attended the International Federation of Airline Pilots' Associations I.F.A.L.P.A. Symposium on all weather landing, at the Hilton Hotel in Amsterdam from October 17 to 19, 1962. The Symposium, which was opened by Prince Bernhardt of...
Mr Eoin C. Mekie, C.B.E., has been appointed to the Board of the Decca Navigator Co. Ltd.
AveryHardoll automatic bottom loading equipment has been in widespread use for loading road tankers and aircraft refuellers during recent years. Now a new AveryHardoll system, known as jet automatic bottom loading, has been introduced to give even greater simplicity and lower costs.
