A Lesson in Production: The Unusual Methods of Rolls‐Royce at Derby

Article publication date: 1 December 1931



READERS of AIRCRAFT ENGINEERING have reason to be grateful to Messrs. Rolls‐Royce. Exactly two years ago, the firm showed its interest in this paper by allowing it to publish the only complete description of the Kestrel and Buzzard engines—then known as the “F” and the “H” respectively—which has appeared, this article remaining the best available source for information on the details of the design of these engines. Two months ago we were able to publish a full illustrated account of the evolution of the Schneider Trophy racing engine from its prototype the Buzzard. This month the premier motorcar firm in the world places us still further in its debt by enabling us to print an article on its aero‐engine production methods by Mr. Handasyde in the series from his pen that has aroused so much interest and discussion in the last few months.
