Flying Engineers. The Flying Engineers were created by Clifton B. Kruse (Don Kelz) and appeared in five stories in Astounding Stories from 1935 to 1936, beginning with “Menace From Saturn” (Astounding Stories, July 1935).

The Flying Engineers are the crew of Special Engineering Transport W62. In the far future, when humanity is regularly crossing the solar system, the crew of W62 encounter a variety of hostile aliens and dangers on the planets of the solar system and in space. Wiljon Kar is W62's commanding officer, Proch is the ship’s engineer, and Lt. Mardico is the older first mate.
