e're shrinking the sky at Honeywell Aero . Honeywell shrinks fuel load re F.,^ quirements. This completely transistorized Honeywell fuel gage is so accurate it can meas ure any fuel load to within 2%. With it planes no longer have to carry surplus fuel as "insurance" against gage inaccuracy. It is 75% lighter and 85% smaller than previous vac uum tube type gages. It is now specified for over 100 types of military and commercial aircraft. MAN'S CONQUEST of the sky is measured not only in speed, distance and altitude of flight, but also in the controls that make such flight possible. From the famous C-l Auto pilot of World War II, Honeywell flight controls have progressed to such advanced systems as the MB-3 Flight Control System of the supersonic F-100, and the space reference system for Project Vanguard. Other Honeywell "sky shrinkers"? Over one quarter million of the world's most accurate gyroscopes, and more flight control and fuel measuring systems than any other company has produced.
