Aircraft Radios and Navigation

April 3 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Boeing Associate Technical Fellow John Somerville will discuss the transition from looking over the side to looking inside, 1927-1957. Join us to explore the earliest forms of navigation using terrestrial objects and landmarks, and use of the horizon to maintain level flight. The progression continues to light and beacon technology. John will present this history using radio panels of HFF aircraft, focusing on the role of human factors in systems design. Regular admission rates apply to the fourth presentation in HFF’s winter series on “The Grand Designs of the Golden Age of Aviation.”
