AUXILIARY POWER AND AIR CONDITIONING FOR THE SELF-CONTAINED AIRPLANE 550181

An auxiliary gas turbine would provide the transport airplane with an energy source to make it self-contained while away from the ramp and without the main engines running. Because of the ground support equipment necessary to service the modern transport airplane while it is on the ramp, there appears to be good reason to take steps to alleviate this ground clutter. The authors believe that the use of an auxiliary gas turbine aboard the airplane would be a step in the right direction to achieve this objective.
