S EQUIPPED

WITH EVERY MODERN AID TO NAVIGATION
SPERRY AUTOMATIC PILOT

This instrument "takes over" the manual flying operation of the Skyliner, maintaining a perfect course and altitude, allowing more time for the crew to devote to navigation.

• RADIO COMPASS

This instrument enables the captain to tune to any commercial broadcasting stations, and by their relative bearings enables him to "plot" his accurate position on course,

• RADIO BEAM RECEIVER

This instrument, by means of audible sound through headphones, and by a visual indicator on the instrument panel, enables the captain to follow the path of the radio beam accurately from Airport to Airport.

RADIO TELEPHONE

This two-way telephone system permits the crew to maintain constant communication between the Skyliner and the various ground radio stations, for the purpose of receiving up-to-the-minute weather information along the route and to report the Skyliner's position at regular intervals.

1 FUEL RANGE

Every Skyliner must carry sufficient fuel to proceed to its scheduled port—in accordance with the Flight Plan prepared —plus sufficient to make specified alternate airports, and, in addition, an extra quantity equal to 45 minutes cruising. This ensures that, should unfavourable weather conditions develop at the port of destination, any one of the specified alternate ports can be made without any shortage of fuel. In practice it means your Skyliner, if necessary, can complete the round trip without refuelling.

• RADIO MARKER BEACON RECEIVER

This instrument indicates accurately the exact time the Skyliner passes over the various Marker Beacons along the radio beam giving the captain an accurate position on his course.

• SINGLE ENGINE OPERATION

In the event of one Engine failing in Flight, your Skyliner can proceed on the other engine at reduced speed to the next port, or return, whichever the Captain decides.
