An aircraft engine is the component of the propulsion system for an aircraft that generates mechanical power.
The Airspeed AS.6 Envoy was a British light, twin-engined transport aircraft designed and built by Airspeed Ltd. in the 1930s at Portsmouth Aerodrome, Hampshire.
The Alvis Leonides was a British air-cooled nine-cylinder radial aero engine first developed by Alvis Car and Engineering Company in 1936.
The bore or cylinder bore is a part of a piston engine.
The static compression ratio of an internal combustion engine or external combustion engine is a value that represents the ratio of the volume of its combustion chamber from its largest capacity to its smallest capacity.
Engine displacement is the swept volume of all the pistons inside the cylinders of a reciprocating engine in a single movement from top dead centre (TDC) to bottom dead centre (BDC).
Gasoline (American English), or petrol (British English), is a transparent, petroleum-derived liquid that is used primarily as a fuel in spark-ignited internal combustion engines.
The Hawker Tomtit is a British training biplane from the late 1920s.
This is an alphabetical list of aircraft engines by manufacturer.
The Lycoming R-680 is a nine-cylinder air-cooled radial engine, the first aero engine produced by Lycoming.
An octane rating, or octane number, is a standard measure of the performance of an engine or aviation fuel.
An overhead valve engine (OHV engine), or "pushrod engine", is a reciprocating piston engine whose poppet valves are sited in the cylinder head.
The radial engine is a reciprocating type internal combustion engine configuration in which the cylinders "radiate" outward from a central crankcase like the spokes of a wheel.
A supercharger is an air compressor that increases the pressure or density of air supplied to an internal combustion engine.
A trainer is a class of aircraft designed specifically to facilitate flight training of pilots and aircrews.
Wolseley Motors Limited was a British motor vehicle manufacturer founded in early 1901 by the Vickers armaments combine in conjunction with Herbert Austin.
