HC Deb 14 April 1937 vol 322 cc997-8
44. Sir William Davison

asked the Under-Secretary of State for Air whether the Air Ministry has made any investigations in the latest methods of blind flying and homing now installed at the airports of Dubendorf, Zurich, and Tempelhof, Berlin, with a view to their adoption on Imperial Airways routes; and what has been the result of such investigations?

Sir P. Sassoon

I am advised that the apparatus installed at the airports named is similar to that with which Croydon, Heston and Gatwick are now equipped. The question of the installation of this equipment at other airports on the Imperial routes is under consideration, but except at Newfoundland it does not necessarily appear that its employment will be required in the meteorological conditions obtaining outside Europe.
