    “Aero Engines
    Types of Engines–

    2) The Vee engine – an engine having its cylinders arranged in two rows or banks forming in the end view the letter V...
    3) The Broad arrow or W engine – cylinders arranged in 3 rows forming in the end view the letter W or \|/...
    4) The Inverted engine – an engine having its cylinders below the crank-shaft and vertical...
    5) The X engine – an engine having 4 rows of cylinders whose axis meet the crank-shaft center in a manner resembling the letter X...
    6) The Flat engine – an engine having cylinders arranged in two rows on opposite sides of the crank-shaft...
    7) The Radial engine – that is an engine having stationary cylinders arranged around a common crank-shaft...
    8) The Rotary engine – an engine having revolving cylinders arranged radially around a common fixed crank-shaft...
    9) Band type – an engine having its cylinders arranged equidistant from & parallel to the main-shaft.” (Notes by Eric from Internal Combustion Engines Theory in 1927)

    Flying skills learnt in the ‘A’ Course included – Flying turns such as gentle - with engine off, straight, sharp and climbing, gentle turns with the engine off, gliding turns, figure of 8 turns, spins, stalling and regaining engine, landings and take-offs, approaches, forced landings, side slipping, circuits, aerobatics, cloud flying, general practice and practice of each specific flying skill. Also formation flying including cross-country such as a trianglular course around Point Cooke and return journeys to Diggers Rest, Geelong, Melbourne, Ballarat and Richmond in New South Wales. Plus skills such as instrument formation flying and formation gunnery, gunnery – camera target and Vickers gun ground target and Popham panel, dual flying and solo flying, reconnaissance and weather flying.

    Some interesting flights in the period soon after Eric became an 'A' Pilot (graduating in December, 1927) and when he was doing his 'A1' Instructors Course in 1928 -
    A flight on 18th March, 1928 from Point Cooke to Flemington in DH9A A1-16 with Pilot Officer Evans, being part of an escort formation to (Bert) Hinkler. A1-16 left Point Cooke at 1430 hours and the flight was 1.35 in length of time.
    A flight on 13th June, 1928 from Point Cooke to Seymour in DH9A A1-27 with Pilot Officer Stevens as the passenger, as part of a formation for (Charles) Kingsford Smith. A1-27 left Point Cooke at 1315 hours and the flight took 3.10 in length of time.

    Flying skills being learnt and practiced by Eric in 1928 and early 1929 -
    Dual control, back seat flying and landing, night flying, bombing - 'Wimpens' sight bombing, formation bombing, high bombing at 4000' and 6000', testing the Lewis Machine gun, parachute dummy dropping, inspecting landing grounds, observing bomb hits, cross wind landing, photography as an observer - including overlap, high banking, rolls and half rolls, 'Aldis' signalling lamp, semaphore, morse code, testing of Engines and Machines - Eric was both a Mechanic and an Air Mechanic before he undertook his 'A' Flying Course. Plus a special parachute folding course was undertaken by Eric in 1928.

    On 18th June, 1930 Eric was the second pilot on Southampton Flying Boat A11-2 that flew from Point Cooke to Queenscliff/Geelong (and return) to 'Welcome Amy Johnson' to Geelong. Other RAAF Personnel on the flight were F/O Campbell, Sgt Kirk, Cpl Kelly, LAC McCormack, LAC Holst, AC1 Richmond and AC1 Doherty.

    In February 1935 Cdt 'Barney' Creswell commenced as a student pilot of Eric's. Barney Cresswell was one of the 44 RAAF student pilots fully trained to fly by Eric. Also Barney was one of number of courageous RAAF Pilots never forgotten by Eric.

    As well in March 1936 Cdt Hitchcock began as a student pilot.

    On 4th and 5th October, 1937 Eric was the pilot of Avro Anson A4-4 which made three Naval Reconnaissance Flights in Western Bass Strait. These operations were ordered by the Air Board.
    The aircrews were –
    • 4/10/37 – 0740 – Sgt Clark, AC Marr and AC Crutchett
    • 4/10/37 – 1330 – Sgt Clark, AC Marr and AC Willmore
    • 5/10/37 – 0810 – Sgt Clark, AC Ranford and AC Marr

    Aeroplanes flown by Eric around Point Cooke in the year 1938, illustrating a flying skills diversity in one year - A1-2, A1-4, A1-17, A1-18, A1-37, A1-55, A1-58, A1-59, A1-60 (Hawker Demon) A4-26, A4-35, A4-36, A4-37, A4-43 (Avro Anson 652) A5-4, A5-14, A5-35, A5-37 (Westland Wapiti 2) A6-1, A6-12, A6-13, A6-14, A6-15, A6-16, A6-17 (Avro Cadet 643) A7-27, A7-54, A7-64 (De Havilland DH60 Moth) A12-2, A12-3 (Bristol Bulldog 11A) and A15-1 (Miles Magister).

    Eric's Flying Log Books number from 1 to 6 - with entries in No 6 ending on 31st January, 1948 when Eric returned to Amberley, Queensland as a passenger with W/C Hampshire in Lincoln A73-18, after attending an AOC (Southern Command) Conference at Schofields, New South Wales.

    Eric's last recorded flight as a RAAF Pilot was when he flew an Anson (number not supplied) on 21st August, 1946 with W/c Fleming as a passenger. The flight was for a tour of inspection - from Amberley to Strathpine, Kingaroy, Lowood, Archerfield and return to Amberley.

    As a further point of interest is a flight that Eric took as a passenger on a TAA DC3 on 2nd June, 1947 from Essendon (Melbourne) to Eagle Farm (Brisbane). The time taken for this flight was 6 hours for what was usually a '5 hour flight' (Eric's words), with Eric already having flown from Eagle Farm to Essendon on 29th May, 1947 on a 6 hour flight. A return journey on a TAA DC4 from Essendon to Eagle Farm on 12th July, 1947 took 5 hours. Similarly flights from Eagle Farm to Mascot (Sydney) or vice versa and from Essendon to Mascot or vice versa took a scheduled 2 hours and 50 minutes.

    Postscript: Harry Hawker was a catalyst for Eric to take up flying and for his love of aeroplanes and all things technical. He related a story that as a child he saved up his pocket money to go for a 'flip' in Elsternwick Park with Harry Hawker. Kevin O'Reilly - Writer of aeroplane histories has recently confirmed that Harry Hawker indeed flew at Elsternwick Park in 1914 - at this time Eric was only 11 and living in Elsternwick and likely attending Caulfield State School (which he did go to). Eric was so taken with these flying experiences that he used to hang out of the doors of the old trams on his way to and from school in 'make believe' flight. An image just found at www.kingstonavition.org (3/10/2014) shows Harry Hawker and his father George at Elsternwick Park. Moreover, Harry's plane there was a Sopwith, probably an SS.

    A further hero of the times for Eric was Harry Houdini - he marvelled at his escapism from seemingly impossible situations and also admired his enthusiasm for flight and flying. He talked about Houdini's dive into the Yarra (1910) when he (Houdini) was chained up and escape seemed impossible. Eric spoke as though he was present at the event; at this age he was only seven years old and I feel that experiences and impressions for him as a child were life defining events. (At this time his family was likely living at Middle Park where Eric attended his first school).Here were the seeds of Eric's love of Acrobatics and Aerobatics.

    ADF Serials state - "A2-4 Forced Landing on 20/10/27 at Anakie, Vic - Crew Corporal G E Douglas"

    Postscript in November, 2017. SE5A with the serial no A2-2 was a single seater but it was converted to a double seater - one seat behind the other - and was re-numbered as A2-36. Then it became known as the 'Flying Pig'. (RAAF Museum Archives and the Australian War Memorial). It was apparently then the only one of its type.
