TITLE: Level Flight Indicator
INVENTOR: Paul Kollsman
YEAR: 1936
PRINT#: K6581

Kollsman was among the innovators responsible for solving key mechanical challenges in the early days of aviation. Altimeters existed that could accurately determine an airplane's height within a few hundred feet, and this was fine for good light and perfect weather, but it made flying at night or among clouds or fog virtually impossible. Kollsman knew an altimeter that responded to changes in barometric pressure could change all that, and his invention measured air pressure and determined altitude with accuracy within just a couple of feet.
