A discussion is presented on the aerodynamic and mechanical design philosophy for the AiResearch model TSE36-1 240 shp gas turbine propulsion engine, which is currently being developed for the small two-to-three-place single engine helicopter market.
The program objectives are to provide engines that have a low selling price and a low cost of ownership. The engine design is highly flexible and, thus, will be suitable for turboshaft and auxiliary power unit applications. This creates a large production base which, along with simplicity of design, will result in a low initial cost. Low cost of ownership will be possible due to a modular maintainability concept, high component reliability, and multifuel and oil operating capabilities.
Experimental flight, development, performance, growth, and official FAA engine tests completed to date are also discussed.
