You'll Learn About How Jet Engines Work—For Free!

If you have ever wondered what makes a jet engine work, let us unlock the mystery for you. This free course will teach you what's involved from jet engine design to engine startup—including the components and systems found in jet engines. This course also covers turbine engines (which are jet engine derivatives). You will learn or brush up on important subjects including:

  • Jet Engine Design
  • Jet Engine Intake and Compression
  • Jet Engine Combustion and Exhaust
  • Starting Jet Engines
John explains Intake, Compression, Combustion and Exhaust

John explains Jet Engines

 

Note: This free mini-course is taken from the King Schools course - Jet Transition. Martha and John King say it best with their description of the full course - "This course covers all the things we wish we had been told in advance when we started flying jets. We would have learned much faster, and avoided making a lot of embarrassing mistakes under very stressful circumstances." —John & Martha King

Explains the magic
Always wondered how the pressure, heat and volume were addressed in engine design, especially the transition from cold to hot sections. The course does a great job of simplifying the key elements without getting excessively lost in terminology.

Great Course
very informative in a small amount of time. The Kings do a great job of providing a lot of material in a small amount of time. The course was also organized in a logic order in which the material presented builds and reinforces what was presented before.

Jet engine basics
Interesting learning about the turbine engine and the way it pressurizes with the different size buckets, also found it interesting that it can depressurize when the engine is under stress allowing it not to work as hard. Also start up procedure with th neumatic starter for less weight, makes sense. Good narrating and explanation, look forward to the next chapters.

Great Turbine Engine Summary
I took this free course to help me better understand jet engines. While the material is presented quickly, it is thorough and provided enough visual and auditory references to help it be memorable as well. I'm not studying for an FAA exam, but John makes sure to note questions that are likely to come up and helps explain the best answers.

Kings have a unique way of helping you memorize sometimes maybe dull theory. In a addition, if you are new to turbines, this course will give you the big picture faster than any other course.

Great Course!
As someone who loves aviation and a GA pilot, I have always understood broadly how a jet engine works. This was a great, FREE course that gave me just the right level of detail to understand in far greater depth how the turbine works works. Really looking forward to some transition training in the future.

How Jet Engines Work Video
I'm a private pilot (SEL) and found this video very good with clear explanations of turbine engine theory. I've wondered about jet engines operation and know enough to talk the talk in basic hangar exchanges. One day would love to walk the walk, but for now getting my instrument and multi engine ratings are fun enough. Keep up the great work King Schools! Blue Skies :)

Huh!
Despite the title of "How Jet Engines Work!" this is not a training video. If you don't already know how a jet engine works this video will only add to the confusion!
