Scouring the information super
airways can sometimes be a tough, if educational, task for the
Aero-News staff... but it also allows us to check out some truly
neat and exciting sites, so it's not that bad a gig. On any given
day, we may check dozens (and often hundreds) of different sources
for story ideas, and facts confirmation. And, as is the nature of
our business, much of this is done on the Internet.
The ANN gang decided we probably shouldn't keep some of the neat
sites, info resources, and organizations we've discovered to
ourselves... so we decided to bring you Aero-Linx. These are the
sites that WE check out -- when we need added perspective, a new
spin on a day's topic... or just want to escape into
cyber-aero-space for awhile.
Look for some of our favorite sites, coming each day to ANN via
Aero-Linx. Suggestions for future Aero-Linx segments are always
welcome, as well.
Aero-Linx: Hobby Gas
The gas turbine was one of the greatest inventions of the last
century; it is a unique and fascinating power plant. It is simple
in its basic operation yet immensely complicated to design and
build. Gas turbines come in all shapes and sizes and range from
miniature model aircraft units to the awesome GE90. This website is
principally a celebration of small engines capable of producing up
to 250 BHP, these are often referred to as APUs (Auxiliary Power
Units). Many small stationary gas turbine engines have been built
over the last 50 years or so, these engines may be considered
collectable in a similar way to their reciprocating brothers.
