TESTING AIRCRAFT. Australian Methods Defended. Commenting yesterday on an article in "The Age" on Friday last dealing with the manufacture of aircraft In Aus tralia, the Controller-General Controller-General Controller-General ot Civil Aviation (Captain E. C. Johnston) said there was no justification for any im pression that the standard of alrworthl- alrworthl- s required ot civil aircraft which had been constructed in Australia in the past was any lower than that demanded of similar aircraft In England. The airworthiness requirements for dvll aircraft, said Captain Johnston, were we same in Australia as in England, England, and the technical officers of the Civil Aviation Board conducted a verv complete check ot the design ot any new type aircrait to ensure tnat it compiled In all resoects with these reoulraments. The construction of the machine was! supervised throughout, and the completed completed type aircraft was subjected to utKiib wgu on exactly me same lines as at Martlesham Heath. Those perform ance characteristics which were pre-i pre-i pre-i scnocu in tne airwonruness requirements were meaeureo. The most modem methods and apparatus were used, and there was no foundation whatever for the statement that tho methods used were cruae, ana prornmy unreliable. Captain Johnston added that a considerable considerable amount of annaratus was avail. able at Martlesham Heath for making special tests or researches, and it was true that there was at present little equipment available in Australia for won or mis nature. However, the department department was In a nosltion to conduct accurately we tests necessary to establish establish the airworthiness of new types of aircraft, and had on occasions performed with success special tests, necessitating the evolution of methods and equipment! iiu. piBviuusiy triea overseas,. , been 10-years-old Jan-sen the pair a Keuy nan-tUcap, C.
