THE problem of designing an aircraft so that the pilot is able easily to regain and maintain control following the sudden failure of an engine has been for some years a serious one. It is thought that an elementary description of the aerodynamics of the problem and of the flight tests which are made to assess a particular aircraft may be of interest. The equally important problem of ensuring adequate performance after an engine failure is not discussed here.
