Description

This invention relates to means for steering or directing the flight of aircraft such as rockets, rocket planes, airplanes or dirigibles. It is the general object of my invention to provide gyroscopic steering apparatus for such aircraft, which may be entirely enclosed within the craft and which embodies no wings, vanes or other devices projecting outward into the surrounding air or slip stream or into a rocket blast. A further object of the invention is to provide improved steering means for aircraft which will be operative regardless of the density of the air through which the craft is moving.
