RNAS Pilots Note and Radio Beacon Flight Board

this example would appear to have been made up in the workshops rather than being an issue item but it exudes charm. The item is made from varnished marine ply and on the from is a sheet of clear Perspex held in place by bulldog clips to allow a note pad or page from a chart to be inserted. The reverse carries a circular diagram to the top with what we believe to be radio beacon codes. Below this is a list of 13 Royal Naval Air Stations with details of their listening channels, identity and ‘safe sector’ Further information is shown concerning heights as well as a Naval C.G.A Whiskey’ legend (Ground Control Approach) And a final reference to ‘Fixer Service –Victor’ but the meaning of this is lost on me. We suspect no huge age but a nice example of more recent RNAS flight equipment. Measures 11” x 5.5” (28 cm x 14 cm)
