THIS month, in our series of articles on popular light aeroplane engines, we print a specially written description of the Czechoslovakian Walter N.Z. 60 engine. We wish to make it perfectly clear that this article and the illustrations to it were sent to us in response to a specific request from us to the Walter firm. In the issues we have so far published have appeared articles, such as those on Italian light aeroplanes, French cabin commercial machines, and the American experiments on the cowling of aircooled engines, dealing with various phases of aeronautical activities in countries other than England. It should by now be apparent, but if not we wish to call attention to it, that this has been a deliberate policy on our part. We have been informed that, in one particular instance at any rate, we have been criticised and the question asked why we advertise foreign aeroplanes. Since this is a view that may be held by other of our British readers it seems desirable for us to deal with it.
