42. Captain BALFOUR
asked the Under-Secretary of State for Air if it is proposed to consider forthwith, or in the future, the possession of a laid down minimum field of vision for the pilot as a condition to be complied with before a civil aircraft can be granted a British certificate of airworthiness?
§ Mr. MONTAGUE
The answer is in the negative. I may add that the importance of the provision of an adequate field of vision for civil aircraft is a question to which constructors in their own interests must pay very considerable attention, and for the present, at any rate, no specific stipulation relating to a minimum field of vision for the pilot is considered to be necessary in connection with the grant of a certificate of airworthiness.
