PROGRESS in most branches of engineering has been dependent upon model tests, and in no branch has the testing of models been of greater importance than in that of aeronautics. The earliest flights were made on models; and after the first successful flight of the full‐sized aeroplane, the development of aircraft to their present state of efficiency has been bound up, at every step, with the information obtained from model tests.
