WITH the cessation of hostilities in 1918 there occurred a lull in the production and development of aero‐engines in all the leading countries, owing to there being small demand for engines for commercial use and to the enormous stocks of surplus material. Thus the commencement of post‐War aviation was effected with advanced series ?f the later War‐period designed engines. Gradually, however, development was continued, and perhaps the one outstanding accomplishment during the period in question as regards the aero‐engine is the perfecting to the present standard of the air‐cooled radial type engine.
