WE are grateful to Mr Tenenbaum for giving us the opportunity of publishing the paper on aerodrome usability which he read last August before the Aeronautical Engineering Branch of the Australian Institute of Engineers. Although the subject is a little outside the general scope of the field we aim to cover, it is one which is of obvious interest and importance to every aeroplane designer. As we hinted last month, the facilities and amenities provided at the aerodromes which aeroplanes will have to use on the services on which they are intended to operate clearly form the basis of much of the fundamental features of the design, particularly in regard to performance and control at take‐off and on landing.
