2021 Short Course: Introduction to Jet Engines
Practical Aeronautics provide unrivaled big-picture, systems-level continuing education short courses in aeronautics, aircraft systems/operations and gas turbine engines to improve foundational understanding, increase confidence, boost motivation, and enhance communication.
This 20hr virtual course is all about Gas Turbine Engines (GTEs) and how they are used in various air-breathing propulsion systems. After taking this course, you will have a new-found understanding of the extraordinarily challenging “jet” engine operating environment. From a very practical perspective, you will be introduced to the fundamentals of the engine core (compressor, combustor, and turbine) and the various GTE propulsion systems.
This course is designed for anyone working in the aviation field who wants to gain a practical appreciation for and foundational understanding of aircraft gas turbine engines — program managers, engineers, scientists, aircraft/engine maintenance, operational, and administrative support personnel.
