How a Radial Engine Works

Recommended Posts

I started my flying career in the 1970s on turbines. Approx 30 years later I got checked out on the canadair CL215 withR2800 supercharged  engines. They were great.....beautiful sound,especially startup and compared to turbines there was an almost instant power response to throttle movement. I only spent a few summers on round engines but what a fond memory. There was the odd reliability issue but that was part of the deal.  I enjoy spending time with the A2A B377 & Connie.
