Auster Autocrat from 1952

For the Roman god of the south wind, see Notus.


Auster Aircraft Limited began as Taylorcraft Aeroplanes (England) Limited in 1938 making light observation aircraft designed by the Taylorcraft Aircraft Corporation of America at the Britannia Works, Thurmaston near Leicester, England. 1,604 high wing Auster monoplanes were built during the Second World War WWII for the armed forces of the UK.


The name change occurred on 7th March 1946 when production shifted to Rearsby aerodrome, also in Leicestershire. All designs were evolved from the early Taylorcraft with a sprung skid or tailwheel beneath the fin, except for a low wing aircraft called the Agricola designed for crop-spraying purposes; unfortunately only two of these were completed. When Beagle Aircraft Company bought the company in June 1961 the successful high wing design was developed still further as the Terrier and - with a nosewheel - the Airedale.


The air observation duties, insurgency and casualty evacuation roles performed by Austers and similar light aircraft were generally taken over by light helicopters from the mid 1960s.

Chris Pace's thesis (10631 words)
Auster's detectives are all very straightforward, both in their manners and their speech; when we are first introduced to them, they all believe that "each word [tallies] the thing described" and that "words are transparent...great windows that stand between [them] and the world" (The New York Trilogy 174).
Auster chooses to use the detective genre in the trilogy at least in part because the rigid conventions of this form underline the set "roles" that the reader, the author, and the characters are supposed to play in the creation of the book.
Auster, I believe, points out this hazard by making his characters aware that, like some readers, they are trapped in the locked room of a conventionally structured novel whose structures lead only back to the text itself, and not to the world that exists outside of the novel.
