Engine

The aircraft progress is tied to advances in propulsion technology.

 

Pre-Cooler

One main advantage of pre-cooling is for a given overall pressure ratio, there is a significant reduction in compressor delivery temperature (T3), which delays reaching the T3 limit to a higher Mach number.

Engine Narcelles

Nacelles or pods are streamlined enclosures used on multi-engine aircraft primarily to house the engines. They are located below, or at the leading edge of the wing or on the tail of the aircraft.

Acoustic Absorber

 Usually set in the inlet nacelles to reduce fan noise, perforated honeycomb sandwich panels are excited by grazing-incidence high sound pressure level (SPL) acoustic waves and air flows.

Bleed Air System

 A bleed air system uses a network of ducts, valves and regulators to conduct medium to high pressure air to various locations within the aircraft. 

Auxiliary Power Unit (APU)

Allows an aircraft to operate autonomously without reliance on ground support equipment such as a ground power unit, an external air-conditioning unit or a high pressure air start cart.

Aerodynamic Strake

A strake is an aerodynamic surface generally mounted on the fuselage of an aircraft to improve the flight characteristics either by controlling the airflow or by simple stabilising effect.

Engine Monitoring Unit

Using these monitoring systems, a pilot can determine what maintenance may be required for an airplane engine which could be experiencing malfunctions, or simply help to determine if airplane engine is in sound condition.

Engine Cowling and Access Doors

the removable cover of an aircraft engine, removed to provide access to the interior of the airframe or engine for inspection, servicing, and repairs of components therein.

Engine Pylon

Connects the frame of an aircraft to an item or object that is being carried. Is necessary to clear the carriage item of control surfaces as well as prevent undesired disturbance of the flow of air toward the wing.

APU Inlet/exhaust

The Auxiliary Power Unit air inlet guide vanes that regulate airflow to the load compressor, expelled after combustion
