' When an aeroplane is tested '
Major Oliver Stewart , M.C.
This is the first of a series of four talks on the practical work that goes to the making and perfecting of an aeroplane. Major Oliver Stewart , a pilot of long experience who was engaged for some time on experimental and test flying for the government and who is a writer on aeronautical subjects, will deal with the tests through which a new aeroplane goes before it is accepted for general use. He will discuss the remarkable inventions which have helped to improve aircraft performance and safety ; aerobatics and their uses in discovering the handling qualities of different machines in the air, and some of the strange aeroplanes that have been produced with special objects in view.
Calculations of aircraft performance tend to become more and more trustworthy, but it is only when it reaches the hands of the test pilot that the true qualities of a new machine become known, and it is with this side of 'plane testing that Major Oliver Stewart will deal this afternoon.
