Risvolto di copertina:
Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. The Aeronautical Syndicate Ltd. Valkyrie monoplanes were a series of canard pusher configuration aircraft designed by Horatio Barber for the Aeronautical Syndicate Ltd in 1910. Examples were widely flown during 1911 and were used for instructional purposes at the ASL flying school, which was the first occupant of Hendon Aerodrome in London. The first aircraft in the series, known simply as the ASL monoplane no.2 was built for Barber by Howard T. Wright and was successfully flown over a short distance by B. Woodward at Larkhill on Salisbury Plain early in 1910. It was powered by a 60 hp (45 kW) Green D.4 engine mounted above the trailing edge of the wing, driving an 8 ft 2 in (2.49 m) diameter two-bladed pusher propeller. The pilot sat immediately in front of the wing's leading edge: in front of him a square-section fuselage of uncovered wire-braced wooden construction carried the twelve foot span foreplane, a small rudder and a pair of nosewheels.
