Aircraft Powerplants from Liquid Cooled to Jet Turbines

Wednesday, January 16, 2019

“When we look at the powerplants on airplanes in the  Historic Flight Foundation inventory, we see they are dominated by air cooled radial engines, further characterized by the Pratt & Whitney Wasp series and the Curtiss-Wright Cyclone series.  While we have discussed the liquid cooled powerplants, this time we will follow the evolution of the air cooled powerplant to jet turbines.  The basic engines actually evolved prior to 1927 and were then enhanced by better manufacturing, fuels, propellers and superchargers.  We will also meet, in some cases, the same imaginative brains that created the production jets before 1957.”
