Power plant and Transmission

Chapter

Abstract

A WIG is a flying machine that takes off and lands on water, in a similar manner to a flying boat. The craft structure has to follow much of the experience and concepts developed in aviation in order to achieve successful flight performance. Power plants also need to comply with aviation criteria of acceptability – reliability, lightest possible weight and highest practical fuel economy.
