The first turbine-powered, shaft-driven helicopter was the Kaman K-225, a development of Charles Kaman's K-125 synchropter, which used a Boeing T50 turboshaft engine to power it on 11 December 1951.[32]. Aircraft Technical Data & Specifications. We’re taking a closer look at the origin of turboprop aircraft. The first turboprop engine was patented in 1929 by György Jendrassik, a Hungarian physicist and engineer. Additionally, due to the much lighter fuel weight of LH2, payload can increase significantly, thus allowing LH2 price per BTU to be as high as 3 times the price of jet kerosene fuel. turbine engine driving an aircraft propeller, Airscrews For Turbines,Fairhurst, Flight magazine, 10 November 1949, p.609. The USA would incorporate contra-rotating turboprop engines, such as the ill-fated twin-turbine Allison T40 — essentially a twinned up pair of Allison T38 turboprop engines driving contra-rotating propellers – into a series of experimental aircraft during the 1950s, with aircraft powered with the T40, like the Convair R3Y Tradewind flying boat never entering U.S. Navy service. Start a New Search. 1989 AIR TRACTOR AT-402. Owing to the additional expansion in the turbine system, the residual energy in the exhaust jet is low. Another benefit of this type of propeller is that it can also be used to generate negative thrust while decelerating on the runway. [4][5][6] Consequently, the exhaust jet typically produces around or less than 10% of the total thrust. [29] It was also the first four-engined turboprop. Some of the power generated by the turbine is used to drive the compressor. In addition to the usual catering services, individual requirements can also be taken into consideration. In 1945, a modified British Gloster Meteor fighter was fitted with two Rolls-Royce RB.50 “Trent” turboprop engines driving 5-bladed propellers. In 2017, the most widespread turboprop airliners in service were the ATR 42/72 (950 aircraft), Bombardier Q400 (506), De Havilland Canada Dash 8-100/200/300 (374), Beechcraft 1900 (328), de Havilland Canada DHC-6 Twin Otter (270), Saab 340 (225).
