Burgess Trainer


Burgess Trainer

Under the American system of training aviators, the pupil goes into the air directly on completing his course of ground instruction, that is, in the details of the mechanism, theory, and assembly of the aeroplane, instead of as in the French system, being obliged to get his preliminary “flying in a penguin, or practically wingless machine. The latter is only capable at the most of exaggerated hops off the ground, whereas the American training plane is a standard machine designed for instruction.

[ad#ad-1]The Burgess training plane is of the tractor type and differs from most of the machines designed for the same service in that the cockpit is arranged so that the pupil and instructor sit side by side instead of tandem.
