Mk I A Turn and slip (Instruments page 15 Turn and slip 1 )

A1 condition Mk I A Turn and Slip seen under fitted to the standard RAF wartime Blind Flying panel. This panel was produced with a curved top and a rectangular. Both types were used in both Fighters and Bombers and it was standard throughout the huge range of RAF Wartime aircraft. The various instruments were changed to suit the aircraft's performance it was fitted to but the turn and slip was standard throughout.

Seen above the BFP from a Spitfire note the 480 MPH ASI.

WWI Turn & slip indicator (Instruments page 15 Turn and slip 6 )

Here we have a superb piece. A turn and slip indicator  from a WWI RFC aircraft. So far I have managed to establish that it was used in at least the SE5-A and the Sopwith Camel as you can see from the cockpit pictures shown. How ever I suspect it was probably used on other aircraft types. This piece is over 90 years old and has some corrosion on the back as seen in the picture. This will be treated to prevent any further damage and can be repaired if required. The rest of the instrument is in good condition.

US Turn and Slip (Instruments page 15 Turn and slip 10 )

Wartime American Turn and Slip fitted to many types of US Warbird's. 

The P 47 Thunderbolt was a 7 ton monster which despite its huge size and weight proved a match for German fighters. This was the first aircraft capable of providing escort to the USAF B17s all the way to deep German targets and home again drastically reducing their losses.

Link Trainer Gyro (Instruments page 15 Turn and slip 11 )

Wartime Sperry Gyro used only on Link trainers.

The need for pilots with instrument training in World War II resulted in Link delivering 6271 . The Link trainers were also use by 35 countries. Although trainee Pilots  flew various trainer aircraft, virtually all took blind-flying instruction in the Link.

Movement of the trainer is accomplished by vacuum operated bellows, controlled by valves connected to the control wheel (or stick) and rudder pedals. An instructor sat at the desk and transmitted radio messages which the student in the Link heard through his earphones. Inside the "cockpit", the student relied on his instruments to "fly" the Link through various manoeuvres while his navigational "course" was traced on a map on the desk by the three-wheeled "crab". Slip stream simulators gave the controls the feeling of air passing over control surfaces, and a rough air generator added additional realism during the "flight".

The Link Trainer holds a significant place in aviation history.

It was the first true flight simulator, and provided safe training to hundreds of thousands of student pilots during the 1930s and 40s.
