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.

 Climb and descend/clinometer from 1930s Hawker aircraft (Instruments pg 5 Climb and descend 1)

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.
