WRITING an introduction to an article by Mr S. B. Gates on Trailing‐Edge Flaps, which appeared in these columns in 1937, the Editor felt constrained to admit his bewilderment over the number and variety of types of high‐lift aid which then existed. Without intending any disrespect, I imagine that the progress of years must have added to his embarrassment. It has certainly added to the number of devices in use and under test.
