WIDE‐BODIED intercontinental airliners, modern airbus concepts and the advanced technology of the turbofan engines with high bypass ratios have created new and increasingly exacting demands on support equipment and services. None more so than in the engine test field. Less than five years ago the largest test bench then being produced by John Curran Ltd. was, with its 50,000 lb. thrust capacity, more than adequate for testing engines existing at that time. Today, engines near this capacity are in regular service and engines with higher capacities are in development.
