MAJOR GENERAL SIR SEFTON BRANCKER, in his inaugural address as Chairman of the Royal Aeronautical Society, chose to give, “The Lessons of Six Years’ Experience in Air Transport.” To those who have been seeking the reasons for the slow development of air transport both here and abroad, there will be disappointment in finding an enumeration of requirements still to be provided before air transport can become satisfactory.

By a process of electrically heating the gas with which Zeppelins are inflated and by gradually cooling it as the load becomes lighter, owing to the use of fuel, two Berlin University chemists, Dr. Kurt Peters and Peter Schlumgohm, believe they have gone a long way toward solving the problems of flying and landing airships without valving gas, which is dangerous with hydrogen and expensive with helium.

The aeronautic instruments section of the Bureau of Standards has continued, during the past year, its program of cooperative research and development work on aircraft instruments with the National Advisory Committee for Aeronautics, the Navy, the Army, and other Government departments and private concerns. In addition, a much larger amount of routine testing of instruments has been done during the past year than ever before. The most important aspect of the instrument development has been the design and construction of a number of special test instruments for studying the performance of heavier-than-air craft.
