      Understanding the different types of aircraft piston engines can help you know what maintenance or repairs are necessary on your aircraft. Straight or In-Line Piston Engines As the name indicates, straight or in-line aircraft piston engines have cylinders in a line, much like automobile engines, which is why they were popular in early aircraft. The story of their development is ably told in Herschel Smith’s A History of Aircraft Piston Engines: From the Manly Balzer to the Continental Tiara. Abundantly illustrated and engagingly narrated, it provides a detailed historical survey of aircraft piston engines from the turn of the 20th century to the book’s publication in /5(19).

    The Pratt & Whitney R was the most remarkable piston aircraft engine ever built. This compact cylinder, twin-row radial powered a huge number of World War II fighters, bombers and cargo planes, then went on to propel fleets of s airliners.

All piston engines used in aircraft from the turn of the century through the 60's or soFollowers: An aircraft engine is a component of the propulsion system for an aircraft that generates mechanical power. Aircraft engines are almost always either lightweight piston engines or gas turbines, except for small multicopter UAVs which are almost always electric aircraft.

Piston airplanes have one or more piston-powered engines connected to the propeller(s), which provide thrust to move the aircraft on the ground and through the air. Piston-powered aircraft most commonly use octane low-leaded fuel and fly at altitudes be feet.

Pages in category "Aircraft piston engines" The following 16 pages are in this category, out of 16 total. This list may not reflect recent changes (). Typical aircraft engines attempt to compress this fuel/air mixture by a factor of between and ; this is called the compression ratio. Compression ratio is actually measured by determining the volume of the entire cylinder with the piston at the bottom of the stroke BDC (bottom dead center) to the volume with the piston at the top of the.
