Abstract

A LICENCE has lately been obtained to manufacture in England the “Faudi” compressed‐air landing legs. Of German origin, this type of undercarriage strut has already been widely used in that country, where it is fitted on the Luft Hansa Junkers used on the Croydon service and the Heinkel H.E.70. It is also well known in France and is being manufactured in Japan. In England it is being made by Turner's Motor Manufacturing Co., Ltd., of Wulfruna Works, Lever Street, Wolverhampton, who are the concessionnaires. This firm is already in production and a number of test sets are being supplied to various aircraft firms.
