Abstract : Measurements of the single engined performance of the Devon C. Mk. 1 in I.S.A. conditions have been made at a number of weights up to 8,500 lb., with some repeats in I.S.A. +10 C conditions, and the results compared with the requirements of B.C.A.R.'s for Group A and Group C aircraft. The requirements for Group C aircraft were met completely only at 7,500 lb. in I.S.A. conditions, but provided that the undercarriage is retracted and the propeller of the failed engine is feathered the single engined performance in still air is not catastrophic even at maximum weight. Some deterioration must be expected in turbulence or in turns, particularly if speed is not held to the required values.
