MAINTENANCE

CORRECT SERVICING DETERMINES DE-ICER EFFICIENCY

Precisely detailed here are the step-by-step working methods for making all types of de-icer repairs which involve vulcanizing—with each job and "fix" tabulated, the curing times carefully calculated, and all do's and don'ts noted....Concluding installment of this two-part "how-to" feature.

ANALYZING THE ASPECTS OF FUTURE

Pacing the trend toward still faster speed—using present-day plane designs at already-attained flight levels—are the more-than-just-difficult hurdles of flow instability, surface heating, and horsepower required. Though pointing the way out, extreme high altitude operation will bring new and knotty problems — which this searching analysis aims to resolve ... First of a series on tomorow's aeronautics.
