Recorder Logs Flight (Nov, 1937)

Recorder Logs Flight
Flight analyzers installed on passenger planes of a leading American air line will record the craft’s altitude during flight, the amount of time a “gyro” or automatic pilot is in use, and the number and time of radio reports to the ground. In case of a crash, the records may help shed light on the cause.
