Engine Performance for the Business Jets 700209

The pilot flying one of today's business jets has a high precision tool at his command. Some of the same basic principles of flying piston-powered airplanes still apply; however, with the jet engine he is faced with revising some of his operating and handling techniques. These changes in techniques have been brought about by increased engine thrusts, increased speeds, longer range, and higher altitudes.
It is the purpose of this paper to explain some of these new characteristics associated with the high performing jet engine, such as, engine ratings, installation effects, operating limitations, thrust setting procedure, engine performance, engine check-out and testing, airplane range.
The interrelationship of these characteristics are discussed to show the importance of proper engine operation so the operator can gain maximum performance from the business jet.
