"A Flight to Madras
Indian flying clubs seem to be getting keen on flights between India and England. The Maharajah of Vizianagaram has purchased an Avro " Commodore (215 h.p. Armstrong Siddeley "Lynx”), and, reports Shell Aviation News, the Madras Flying Club has contracted to fly the machine out from England. Mr. H. L'E. Tyndale-Biscoe, assistant pilot- instructor, will be the pilot on this flight, which is due to start from Manchester this month.
On October 21 Mr. H. Tyndale-Biscoe, an instructor of the Madras Flying Club, left Heston for Madras in an Avro "Commodore." He is delivering this aeroplane to the 'Rajah of Vizianagaram, who recently learned to fly at the Madras Club. The machine, which is equipped with a complete set of blind flying instruments, is arranged so that half of the back seat can be adapted as a bed if necessary. Mr. Tyndale- Biscoe is about to join the flying staff of Messrs. Tata, in India." - 'Flight'
