Range Vs. Payload

THE RANGE OF AN AIRPLANE is affected by its weight, speed, fuel load, engine R.P.M. and other factors. The effect of each item can best be studied by finding just how each affects the miles per lb. of fuel of the airplane. The miles per lb. of fuel, or specific range, is equal to the speed in miles per hour divided by the pounds of fuel used per hour.

Hughes Flight Had Long Planning; Start Sets Wing-loading Record

THIS IS NO “NEWS STORY” of Hughes’ flight from Floyd Bennett Field to Floyd Bennett Field. Anyone who doesn’t know the main facts about the way young Hughes and four companions last month flew round the world in half a week must be so far beyond the reach of the printed and the broadcast word that this magazine would never reach him anyway.
