As a result of the Washington Treaty the Courageous class ships were converted from battlecruisers. They were intended to be used together a squadron.
The HMS Glorious had a longer flight deck than the HMS Courageous. There was a short flying off deck on the hull. There was a ramp to help with takeoffs.
The funnel and island were located on the starboard side of the flight deck.
Two catapults were installed that could launch up to 10,000 lbs.
The upper hangar was 550' long and had two 46' x 48' elevators.
