Occasionally, however, transformative breakthroughs in technology have
occurred, the most outstanding of which was the inception of the aircraft gas
turbine, which heralded the jet age. In view of the signal importance of that
innovation, it is convenient for the purposes of this chapter to divide the following
discussion into two portions, with the first referring to the era when piston (
reciprocating) engines held sway and the second concentrating on the impact of
jet engines. Reciprocating ...

During the ensuing decades, Langley Research Center's research and
development activities advanced the science of aeronautics from simple
propelleddriven aircraft into the jet age. Their accomplishments are too
mumerous to mention here, but it is no exaggeration to state that Langley was the
nexus from which fundamental technological breakthroughs in propulsion,
aerodynamics, materials, aircraft and wing designs propelled our Nation to
become the world's preeminent ...

Countless books exist on famous aviators, historic aircraft, air transportation, and
the impact of air power on modern warfare; few books, however, touch upon how
baseline theoretical work on aerodynamic theory made modern flying machines
possible. A professor of aerospace engineering, John Anderson brings this
complex story to life. The dream of flight is indeed an ancient dream - one that is
manifest in myth, in art, and in the earliest records of civilization. John Anderson
begins ...

Jet engineers join General Electric in mixing imagination with experience to
increase propulsion performance Even success generates its own kind of
challenges, and at the Flight Propulsion Division of General Electric, improving
already outstanding engine performance is one of them. As the box to the right

THE DAWNING OF THE JET AGE; OCTOBER 1958 by Joseph Cassen Even
before the first jet airplane takes to the skies on its first scheduled flight, the very
term Jet Age is in danger of becoming a platitude. ... The big and welcome
challenge in the Jet Age will be to generate a sufficient volume of new
passengers to pay for the larger and faster planes which will be in operation. ...
The tremendous technological breakthroughs of the past one hundred years are
particularly dramatic.
