The following nice jump for jet propulsion may be to power-sustained, effective flight throughout the surroundings. "Hypersonic Airbreathing Propulsion provides the 1st complete, unified creation to all parts of the scramjet engine that would make this feat attainable. The textual content emphasizes primary ideas, guiding techniques, analytical derivations, and numerical examples having transparent, helpful, insightful effects.

Tobin, who was CO of Aero Flight at RAE Farnborough where he was involved in the new programme of transonic testing. At the same time I was to learn something of the innovatory reputation acquired by Miles Aircraft Ltd,1 located at Woodley, near Reading. I had first met a Miles product when I carried out my elementary flying training in 1939 for the Fleet Air Arm on the Miles Magister, which I found a delight for such a task. This story now jumps to 21 December 1941, when I was a pilot flying Grumman Wildcat fighters aboard the escort carrier HMS Audacity, which was sunk by a German U-boat in the Bay of Biscay.
Once F. G. Miles had been slotted into this unique MAP project he wasted no time in springing into action. A fearsome challenge in the field of high-speed aerodynamics now faced the Miles team, and particularly for Dennis Bancroft, its Chief Aerodynamicist. To find the latest information on the subject a visit was made to Ronald Smelt of the Aerodynamics Department of the RAE. Dennis Bancroft now recounts the saga of the pursuit of transonic/supersonic enlightenment in Chapter 3. 11, a drawing of the projected transport.
1. A. Griffith was Head of the Engine Section of the RAE Farnborough. He was also a member of the Supersonic Committee. 5 In at the deep end The four pilots of the Aerodynamics Flight. From left to right: Sqn Ldr Tony Martindale, Sqn Ldr Jimmy Nelson, the author and Sqn Ldr Doug Weightman. When the momentous wartime year of 1944 dawned I was a test pilot at the Aircraft and Armament Experimental Establishment (A&AEE), Boscombe Down. But not for long as fate stepped in and I was hurried on my way to RAE Farnborough to replace a pilot killed in the course of his test work.
