Great Course!
As a Private Pilot student I enjoyed learning how a turbine engine works, and I would recommend this course to all students involved in aviation programs. Watching jets take off and land is rewarding enough, but knowing how the engines create trust to maintain them up in the air safely is tremendous.

Good Quick Picture
A short and to the point discussion of how a jet engine works. For those of us who do not have a jet type rating, or just wondered as a commercial passenger how they operate, it gives a good clear explanation. The graphics are, as always, excellent and the presentation clear and well paced.
