How a jet engine work overview
Goes over a LOT of information quickly. Covers the main portions of the intake,compression and exhaust cycle of as jet engine.Information comes at you almost non-stop and a second run through would likely help lock more of the info in for you. Covers the basic info and questions likely to be presented to you in a basic FAA jet engine exam. Since it goes fast, the time to go over all the info is relatively short but I would recommend going over it at least a second time to help lock it into memory even though it seems to be clear after the initial run through.

Efficiently Delivered Info
The speaker talks very quickly through some key points, yet returns to larger points at regular intervals. This helps the brain to commit the information to long term memory despite the quick delivery. Now that I have this overview, however, I would like more in depth reading about turbine engines. Perhaps I will encounter this at the right time though.

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.
