At a time when so many outstanding aviation performances are being set up, culminating in the remarkable flight of Capt. Charles A. Lindbergh across the Atlantic Ocean, it is peculiarly easy to think out milestones in aeronautical development which are indicated by such achievements.

THAT THE widespread interest in aviation which is so characteristic of the present time in the United States, is by no means solely confined to this country, is very apparent from a perusal of the Foreign Aeronautical Review chapter of the 1927 Aircraft Year Book, published by the Aeronautical Chamber of Commerce.

THE THREE-PURPOSE plane presents one of the most difficult phases of the Navy's aircraft program. The weight of bombs, torpedo, guns, crew, fuel and other equipment, in conjunction with the weight of gear required for arresting, catapulting, and inter-changeable land and water landing, requires an airplane of the larger class to fulfill the three-purpose mission.

Some indication of European activity in the lighting of airports for night flying is given by a recent report of the B.B.T. Corporation of America covering installations of B. B. T. equipment in Europe. It appears that more progress has been made toward the establishment of night air routes than is generally realized in the United States, perhaps because the night equipped airways which now cover Europe are not extensively used commercially as are the air mail routes here.

An example of such divergence has recently been brought to light in the tests being conducted to determine the cause of the unsatisfactory characteristics in recovery from spinning of one of the newer types of observation airplanes.

RICHARD M. MOCK
GEARS FOR driving propellers at less than engine speed have frequently been employed with a view to securing greater propeller efficiency, and hence better airplane performance. Both theoretical considerations and comparative flight tests indicate that geared down propellers may improve propulsive efficiency.

THE GREATEST question in dispute at the present time is in regard to the best method of illuminating the landing area of an airdrome. Various types of equipment have been designed to accomplish this and each in turn has its merits. If illumination of a large area is all that is considered the answer would be one thing.

DURING 1925 the all-metal fuselage came into very general use both in military and in commercial planes. This type of construction made the installation of dusting hoppers and agitation drive mechanisms easier to install in aircraft not specifically designed for dusting work, as it is little or no trouble to weld additional tubes or braces, whereas in the old type of wood fuselage it proved quite a problem to make such changes and maintain the original strength of the fuselage members in the bay where the hopper was located.
