Abstract

IN the 1940 Wilbur Wright memorial lecture on the future of British Civil Aviation Dr. Roxbec Cox has stated that the study of passenger convenience leads to consideration of over weather flying and that the study of improvements in safety leads to consideration of flutter prevention. He has stated also that all aviation authorities recognize the danger of flutter and warns that the chief danger to be guarded against in the future is a sense of security. It has, therefore, been thought worth while to examine the effect on wing flutter speed of flying at great heights. The effects have already been briefly considered by Williams, Pugsley and Duncan in this country and by Kassner and Fingado in Germany.
