M-023 Aviation Gas Turbine Engines

Gas Turbine Systems Fundamentals

The Aviation Gas Turbine Engines online 2 PDH course is a part of the Mechanical Engineering category of courses.

In a reciprocating engine, the functions of intake, compression, combustion, and exhaust all take place in the same combustion chamber. Consequently, each must have exclusive occupancy of the chamber during its respective part of the combustion cycle. A significant feature of the gas turbine engine is that separate sections are devoted to each function, and all functions are performed simultaneously without interruption.

This course provides guidance on fundamentals of gas turbine engines in the aviation industry. It discusses components, operation and maintenance of the gas turbine engine.

This course is based on Federal Aviation Authority “Aviation Maintenance Technician Handbook”.

This course is intended for mechanical engineers, and other design and construction professionals wanting to learn about aviation gas turbine engines.

Learning Objectives

At the end of this PDH online continuing education course, you will be able to:

  • Explain the fundamental workings of a gas turbine engine
  • Describe all major components of a gas turbine engine
  • Specify general maintenance of gas turbine engine components
