"Pratt & Whitney engines helped to win World War II by powering much of the U.S. fighter fleet as well as many British planes. They also powered 98 percent of all transport planes used by the military during that war. Since then, they've powered such record-breaking aircraft as the Boeing B-50, the first airplane to fly nonstop around the globe, and the Air Force F-100 Super Sabre becoming the first aircraft to break the speed of sound in horizontal flight. In July 1976, Pratt & Whitney J58 engines powered an SR-71 spy plane to a world altitude record of 84,069 feet (25,624 kilometers) and a second Blackbird to a world speed record of 2,193 miles per hour (3,529 kilometers per hour). These dependable engines are also responsible for powering the first generation of commercial jet transports bringing the world to our front doors - the Boeing 707 and Douglas DC-8. Pratt & Whitney's JT8D, powering the Boeing 727 and 737, as well as the Douglas DC-9, has totaled more than half a billion hours of service with more than 350 operators since its commercial service began. In fact, they've been used in most of the world's civil, commercial and military aircraft. Over the years, Pratt & Whitney has patented hundreds of innovations, from heat-resistant coatings to aerodynamic blades - technologies that make air travel more cost effective, comfortable and dependable. Today Pratt and Whitney engines provide power for everything from land based power stations, business jets and helicopters to large commercial aircraft, fifth generation fighters, and manned & unmanned space vehicles."The story of Pratt & Whitney" offers broad insight into the history of aviation itself and the people who built the industry."--Résumé de l'éditeur.

FROM THE PREFACE: This book celebrates the wonderful projects on which we worked at Pratt & Whitney during the almost magical quarter century bounded by World War II and the competition to develop the Space Shuttle engine. Some of the work has never been described until this book because of stringent security classifications that are now lifted. This book is about the almost unbelievable engines and the dedicated group of people who made the engines real. Most of these unique projects were not the daily 'bread and butter' for Pratt & Whitney and thus were free from much of the survival pressure that typically surrounds that work. Instead, they were driven by the challenge of attempting things that had never been done. Two lasting discoveries that came from the work of the group were the RL10 hydrogen rocket engine, which has been used to launch most large satellites over the past half-century, and the development of the technology for the high-pressure staged combustion rocket engine used in the Space Shuttle.CONTENTS INCLUDE: Ramjets - The Early Days at the Research Laboratory; T57 - The Largest Turboprop; Liquid Hydrogen and the 304 Engine - Suntan; RL10 - My Only Moneymaker; High-Pressure Rockets - A Decade and One-Half Billion Dollars; Boost Glide and the XLR129-Mach 20 at 200,000 Feet; XLD-1 Gas Dynamic Laser; The Space Shuttle Engine; A Cry for Help.

Examines the 1984 "war" that pitted Pratt and Whitney against GE in head-to-head competition for multi billion dollar defense contracts to provide high performance engines for front line fighter aircraft. The circumstances surrounding the lengthy battle led to the Air Force decision to split future engine sales between the two. Attempts to cut through emotional opinions of the "combatants," to report reality, and to identify lessons learned. Helps the reader to understand the government-to-contractor personality issues; to understand management styles, business expectations and communication skills of key participants.

Excerpt: The Pratt & Whitney R-985 Wasp Junior is a series of nine-cylinder air-cooled radial aircraft engines built by the Pratt & Whitney Aircraft Company from the 1930s to the 1950s. These engines have a displacement of 985 cu in (16.14 L); initial versions produced 300 hp (224 kW), while the most widely used versions produce 450 hp (336 kW). Wasp Juniors have powered numerous smaller civil and military aircraft, including small transports, utility aircraft, trainers, agricultural aircraft, and helicopters. Over 39,000 of these engines were built, and many are still in service today. Pratt & Whitney developed the R-985 Wasp Junior as a smaller version of the R-1340 Wasp to compete in the market for medium-sized aircraft engines. Like its larger brother, the Wasp Junior was an air-cooled nine-cylinder radial, with its power boosted by a gear-driven single-speed centrifugal supercharger. Its cylinders were smaller, however, with a bore and stroke of in (132 mm), giving a...
