Notes on Speed Indicators for Airplanes

There are two dangers which an aviator must guard against by the use of a speed indicator. Too low a speed may lead to stalling; that is, the speed is so low that the weight of the airplane is not sustained, and on the other hand too high a speed may cause excessive stress and possible breakage.

"The Rocky Mountain Scout”

In the development of types of military airplanes we, in America are confronted with certain new problems arising from conditions peculiar to this country. For instance, it appears that, in the event of an invasion from East or West, a great part of the operations would be conducted in mountainous and heavily wooded country,β€”the Alleghanies, the Sierras, or the Rockies.

Requirements of Airplane Floats

Among the pioneer airplane builders the advantages to be gained by starting from the surface of the water were appreciated, and numerous efforts are recorded along these lines, though no success was really attained until Curtiss flight at San Diego in February, 1911.

The Heat Treatment of Steel

The heat treatment of steel is of great importance in airplane construction. Airplane fittings and engine parts should be made as light as possible without impairing their strength. The steel from which they are made should therefore have the greatest possible strength and sufficient resilience to resist the shocks to which fittings of engine parts are subjected.
