This class begins with turbine engine theory including thrust calculations, induction/exhaust/cooling systems, and the parts of the jet engine itself. Due to the specialized nature of turbine engine construction and tooling. The student disassembles and reassembles a non-running engine to learn about general turbine engine construction. Next, the student performs an Airworthiness Directive and engine conformity inspection, followed by engine removal from a turbine powered aircraft. After cleaning and inspection of the engine and engine compartment, they reinstall the engine and perform an engine run-up to check all critical functions. Any issues with the engine are diagnosed and repaired.
