The improvement has *tn gradual, however, and the_ tunt flights since that of Una- have somehow failed '.o il- •imlnotc thai progress with quite same brilliance. :!llols Prove Worth The robot pilot, for Instance, had t een well developed before Wiley 'osl's recenl round- ihe-world 'ighl. Post's feat called attention i it only momentarily. Ycl gyro-equipped planes are be- ornlns fairly common on the refiu- ,ir airlines, and the various pieces jf gyroscopic equipment have con- dbuted a great deal to the really 'emarhable safety record which :fie American air llr.cs ate making c« days. The automatic pilot as used by i'ost and as installed on several big •I.

Spcrry—Inventive Genius More than 2000 ships now carry the little dashboard gyros thol are the "artificial horizon" and Ihe "direct'jnal gyro." But only a few have added t'rc attachment which enables these little instruments to control the plane themselves instead of simply telling the pilot how to do so. Flying owes a great debt for nil this to the late Elmer Ambrose Spjrry. who died three years ago after a lifetime devoted lo invention with such Intensity that he held literally hundreds of patents. Sperry. inventor of many other kinds of machinery, got interested in gyros from playing wilh the same kind of gyro top lliat every-1 one has playtd with. Today the I delicate robot pilots which guide planes through the air, and the massive gyro wheels that hold ships steady against their will in rough water, nre alike monuments to his genius. his 18lh buggy was r.nlf worn out.
