Aircraft engines are gas turbines and have been around for a long time, but how do they work? Find out here!

I'll use my experience and guide you from the very basics - temperature, pressure, etc - all the way to the details - looking inside an aircraft engine, and how to start one up!

Who this course is for:
  • Anyone and everyone who's even been curious to know more about aircraft engines and gas turbines!
