Climb and descend

Page 6 instruments

RAF Wartime climb and descend indicators are generic instruments, the aircraft shown in our adds did use the parts shown but they may of coarse been used in a different type of aircraft . If you are not sure what part you require then please contact us and I will do my best to advise you on the most suitable purchase. The climb and descend was produced in various different designs and were used in the Blind flying panel. The BFP contains instruments which show the flying characteristics, speed and orientation of the aircraft to the Pilot and allow as its name suggests the aircraft to fly blind using the instruments only. These instruments were used in practically every wartime RAF aircraft Bombers and fighters and the basic design remained the same regardless of the aircrafts role or performance.

Canadian Climb Rate indicator (Instruments pg 6 Climb and descend 6)

This is a climb and descend made by the Canadian Aircraft Instruments Company LTD . On the back it has 346 scratched on to the case I thought this might be an aircraft serial number as it was common practice when removing parts for the air crew to mark parts in this way. I searched for a Canadian aircraft with this reg and it came back with a Grumman Goblin, despite being a Bi Plane it was fairly advanced having retractable undercarriage. It does appear to use the same style of instrument although I could only find one actual picture of the cockpit there was another used for an online game which did show the same instrument but of coarse that may be not historically accurate.

I may be completely wrong and it may not be the serial but this is what I found and as the instrument is not dated its never going to be conclusive and the instrument is priced based on its value as hardware history not with standing. The instrument is Canadian it is the same style as used by the Goblin and the serial 346 is from a Canadian Aircraft. The aircraft suffered a crash hitting a tree so was written off and all salvable parts would of certainly been removed.

Shown above a Grumman Goblin not 346 the cockpit is from another unidentified Goblin these aircraft did appear have various instrument layouts its certainly not a standard BFP the climb and descend appears to be lower right just above the lever.

The Grumman FF "Fifi" (company designation G-5) was an American biplane fighter flown by the United States Navy during the 1930s. It was the first carrier aircraft with retractable landing gear. It was produced under licence in Canada and known as the Goblin in Canadian service and Delfin ("Dolphin") in Spanish service.

The Canadian Car & Foundry Company acquired a manufacturing licence for the Grumman G-23, and improved FF-1, of which it completed a total of 52, some of which were assembled from US-built components. Although initially rejected as a fighter by the RCAF as outdated and too slow, with the advent of war, the last 15 of the CC&F production batch were taken on strength as the Goblin I. The aircraft type served with the RCAF from 17 September 1940 until 21 April 1942. "A" Flight of No. 118 RCAF Squadron was equipped with Goblins at Rockcliffe in Ottawa, and subsequently became No. 118 (Fighter) Squadron, later stationed at Dartmouth, Nova Scotia where the Goblins for a time constituted the sole fighter force on the east coast.

 Canadian Climb and descend indicator  (Instruments pg 6 Climb and descend 2)

This is a Canadian made climb and descend indicator  the instrument is dated 1944 .his is a climb and descend made by the Canadian Aircraft Instruments Company LTD.

Fitted to many types of Canadian built Wartime aircraft including the MK X Lancaster.

There were to be some differences between the British Lancasters and the Canadian built versions (known as Mk X's). The engines were to be of the same design, but manufactured by Packard in the United States and all instruments and radio equipment were to be of Canadian or American manufacture. However, it was deemed essential that all major sub-assemblies of the Canadian Lancasters be interchangeable with the British versions so that in the event of damage, spare parts would not have to be sent across the Atlantic.

Here is an extremely rare Clinometer used to measure the climb and descent of early Bi plane Hawker aircraft. It is in excellent condition still contains fluid and works . It is mounted in a  bracket allowing it to be displayed and tilted to demonstrate its function, this may have been used as a training piece hence the fact it survived. Its the only example I have ever seen.
