THE development of aircraft penumatic equipment has progressed so satisfactorily in recent years that actuation of vital services by means of compressed air is becoming increasingly popular. In this brief review of developments to date an attempt will be made to show how the air which has been made available as a result of compressor improvements is utilized and by way of introduction it may be of interest to recall some of the bold experiments which were made in earlier years.
