Abstract

THE performance of civil aircraft having pure jet engines as opposed to turbine‐propeller engines will be considered since it is thought that for the latter the methods usually adopted for piston‐engined aircraft are on the whole applicable. It will be assumed that the performance of the jet engine (i.e. its thrust and fuel consumption at various r.p.m., forward speeds and altitudes) is given and that the aerodynamic properties of the aircraft in its various configurations are known.
