Aircraft Instruments, 2da Edition - E. H. J. Pallett

Written By Alexis Llontop on viernes, 30 de enero de 2015 | 17:45

The aeroplane on which I took my Aero Club ticket had as its instrumentation an engine rev. counter and an oil pressure gauge, an altimeter which recorded up to 16,000 ft (and mighty slow it -was) and an airspeed indicator on which the scale showed up to about 75 m.p.h. (the top speed of a Maurice Farman Longhom was plus/minus 60 m.p.h. and its best climbing speed about 28 m.p.h.). This airspeed indicator consisted of a small cup on the end of a rod at the end of which was a bell crank lever which actuated a pointer. As it was mounted on the outer strut, to see one's speed at all from the front tandem seat meant turning one's head more than 90" to the left!

A lot of water has flowed under the world's bridges since early 1915, and with the advent of the cabin type of aircraft and the turbine engine the aeroplane has become a very complicated vessel indeed, the main purposes of which are either to carry enormous loads of highly flammable fuel at great speed and height with as big a payload as possible, or simply to destroy an enemy before he destroys you. Naturally its instrumentation has become proportionally difficult to install and maintain.

This book by Mr Pallett has been written with the aim of helping those whose job is to keep aircraft in the air to understand their instruments and, of course, the fundamental principles underlying their design and application to flight.

Every time I am invited to an aircraft pilot's cabin, I thank my stars I no longer fly except as a passenger and my sympathy goes out to the licensed aircraft engineers who are responsible for ensuring that everything works according to plan. Theirs is a very difficult job, and if Mr Pallett's book will help them, as indeed I feel sure it must, then he will have done a good job and will be the recipient of very many blessings.
