Flight 24 December 1910 Final paragraph of his letter about 'Gyroscopic Effect: -"In conclusion may I suggest that the time has surely come when large passenger carrying machines, mechanically controlled, should be built. Personally I would, if I had the means to do so, build a large machine of the multi-plane type - with Mr. Roe's triplane as the prototype-fitted with two high-powered rotary engines mounted in a vertical plane as I have suggested in the front of the machine, and in a similar manner to the two gyrostats on Mr. Brennan's monorail (if he would let me so far infringe his patents). The propellers would be placed as in the Wright biplane, and I should want to convince myself that the great length of tail prevalent in modern machines was necessary." Flight 16 September 1911 "The Avro school were out with their new biplane. Mr. Wheatley was having his first rolling practice, making excellent progress, …"Flight 2 December 1911"C. W. C. WHEATLEV, M.A., and [Sqn. Ldr.] S. V. Sippe, both of the Avro school, are collaborating in the production of an instrument which, once its successful operation is proved, should revolutionise cross-country flying, in that the difficulty of maintaining a true course to a given point will be reduced to a minimum. The instrument has the appearance of a simple box, under the glass lid of which passes a map on rollers. Directly above the map are two spider lines, intersecting each other at right angles, which move in relation to the direction and distance travelled by the vehicle on which the instrument is placed. In starting away from a certain spot, the lines are adjusted so that they intersect over the point representing that spot on the map, and no matter what direction is taken or what speed is maintained, these spider lines will always move and indicate the course which has been taken."Flight 30 November 1912"Some few months back I mentioned in these paragraphs that Messrs. Wheatley and Sidney V[incent]. Sippe were conducting experiments on a device intended to be fitted to a motor car, by which, no matter in what direction the car was driven, its location at any moment would be indicated on a roller map contained in the apparatus. They further intended applying the same invention to steamships and to aeroplanes, examples of locomotion in which the velocity of the vehicle relative to earth cannot be determined in such a ready way as it can be from the road wheels of a car. …
Mr. Wheatley has, by the way, control of the Science Department of Epsom College, and I can assure my readers that he is no mean exponent of his profession. Some little while back, while chatting over things in general, he mentioned that he was about to commence on a series of experiments to determine the possibility of recording sound vibrations, through the medium of light, on a cinematograph film, and further, of reproducing them. For such a system, were it practicable, there would be a far-reaching future, for by its use it would be possible, in conjunction with a cinematograph, to reproduce an exact portrayal of an event, perfectly synchronised in the impressions it would convey to the eye and ear. A clever idea, forsooth." From 6 September1912, Second Lieutenant Christopher W. C. Wheatley was promoted Lieutenant in Epsom College Contingent, Junior Division, Officers Training Corps .
At Epsom College, an "Aeronautical Section, under Mr. Wheatley...took over and fitted out a shed in the grounds, dividing their time between making and flying models, lectures on flight, visits to local airfields or races and making, repairing and flying their own full-sized glider. This was launched along a runway in front of Wilson House, being powered by a descending weight. Flights at first were tethered, and the degree to wish free flights were undertaken is uncertain."
7 February 1939 Colour Photography patent issued to Christopher William Crouch Wheatley and Christopher Cameron Hope Wheatley, Kent, England.
