1942 Simplified Flight Calculator which allows aircraft pilotage using dead reckoning in course plotting. Calculates drift angle and correction, course, heading, magnetic or compass reading, wind speed and direction, duration, air speed correction for altitude, and temperature, and correction for variation and deviation.
This given in a time and era when airplanes were made out of fabric and radial engines raced the sky. While night eyes gazed in black lit cockpits, upon organized maps snug against a glowing plotter.
