Why Are Aircraft Engines Mounted Under the Wing?

While years of research and innovation went into making the first aircraft, early designs, and still current designs, are far from perfect. The aviation industry continues to evolve, making constantly better designs. One major shift in aircraft design was the change in the location of the engine. Aircraft once had engines attached to the nose, above the wings, blended into the wings, and the rear fuselage. Today, most aircraft engines are stored under the wings for better overall performance. Many factors contributed to this shift in design, so this blog will explore the reasoning behind the engine’s new location for your better understanding. Read more >>

How a Turbojet Engine Works?

The introduction of the turbojet engine brought about a revolution in the operating capabilities of many aircraft. Producing more power, faster speed, and higher fuel efficiency, turbojet engines became the staple for commercial and military aircraft. The turbojet is equally complex as it is impressive, but anybody with an interest in aviation should take the time to understand the fundamentals of these machines. In this blog, we will discuss the operating principle behind turbojets while also highlighting the various forms that may be found in standard aircraft. Read more >>

What Are The Components of Aircraft Engines?

Whether you are flying a simplistic trainer aircraft or a robust military fighter jet, most modern aircraft rely on the combustion of fuel and air to create the power necessary for flight. Fuel combustion takes place in the engine of the aircraft, making it an essential element for aviation. While there are a diverse set of engines that exist for varying types of planes, most share a standard set of components that work together to make fuel combustion possible. In this blog, we will provide a brief overview of the most common engine components that are found in the aircraft engine. Read more >>

Reciprocating Engines and the Importance of Spark Plugs

Reciprocating aircraft engines are almost always fitted with independent, dual ignition systems, allowing for increased safety in terms of redundancy in the case of a system failure. With dual magneto configurations, the engine can even continue to run in the instance of the electrical system failing. As a result, new technology often continues this sense of redundancy, always ensuring that there is some form of backup to keep the engine running during a standard flight operation. In this blog, we will discuss the operations of a piston engine and the importance of spark plugs, allowing you to better understand how such systems function and are maintained. Read more >>

Rolls-Royce Tests Gearbox with Up to 100,000 Horsepower

Rolls-Royce conducted the first test for its Power GearBox (PGB) at its facility in Germany. The beginning of PBG testing has marked an important step for Rolls-Royce’s UltraFan engine as it has been two whole years since the design for the UltraFan was first released. The PGB is an essential part of the fan’s infrastructure and efficiencies. It will enable the engine to provide power that reaches 100,000HP during aircraft take-off, landing, and during flight.
