Instrument flying has become so
generally accepted throughout the
aeronautical world that those who
use it no longer question its reli
ability. This depends upon the
knowledge of the operator, but
there is nothing in the operation
of the various control devices that
cannot be mastered in a relatively
short time. No term is quite so
misleading as “Blind Flying.” *
As instrument flying actually
functions, the pilot often has a
much more accurate knowledge of
his location when on instruments
than when he is in visual contact
with the ground. Consequently, the
results are just opposite of “blind.”
The difficult technical side of in
strument flying is taken care of on
a radio directive device which is
used to transmit an electrical sig
nal in certain areas and the work
of the pilot is only to pick up the
signal and recognize it. From his
ability to recognize the signal he
knows his exact position. Experi
ments have been made repeatedly
whereby planes are brought in and
landed with the pilot under cover,
and he never sees the ground until
the landing operation has taken
The rapid development of the
radio and electrical industry gener
ally have made this type of flying
safe and desirable. They have con
tributed materially to the advance
ment of aviation both in commer
cial and private flying. Many of
the developments have been ap
plied and developed during the
present period of hostilities.
