E J Foley: 12. Weight Control – Aircraft Design Problem. 1941.



Among the more recently developed and highly specialized fields of aeronautical engineering is that of aircraft weight control and reduction. If we go back 10 years, we will find that this activity, limited as it was, was then handled by anyone who happened to have a little time on his hands. And yet, today, we have the Society of Aeronautical Weight Engineers, a national organization of the specialists, doing intensive research and missionary work to accurately control aircraft weights with an eye to even the slightest reductions.
