The head of the Engines Department of the Naval Flight Preparatory School at Colgate is admirably equipped to do this introduction to an understanding of modern aircraft engines. There is sufficient historical background data to show the development and trends; but the book is primarily a clear, concise study of basic and fundamental factors of cooling systems, cylinders, types of fuel (three factors in differentiating motors); on the types of warplanes, and their engines, their purpose and performance; basic principles, the different parts of the motor, function and operation; and the instrument board and its importance.
