This is a revised, and considerably enlarged edition of the glossary which was originally, issued in 1923. The technical committee entrusted with its preparation, under the chairmanship of the editor of AIRCRAFT ENGINEERING (who succeeded Colonel Mervyn O'Gorman in June, 1930) consisted of representatives of the Air Ministry (including the Meteorological Office), Aeronautical Research Committee, Patent Office, Royal Aeronautical Society, Royal Aero Club and Society of British Aircraft Constructors. It will thus be seen that every effort was made to ensure that the glossary would be fully authoritative. It has, in fact, been officially adopted by the Air Ministry for use in the Royal Air Force and will be distributed among the personnel concerned.
