it is the most commonly used and preffered choice of Hydroplanes.
The 7 series are rated at 2400-2600 SHP.
The 11s are rated from 3300 to approx 3750Shp.

They i beleave have 7 stages of axial compressor blades compared to the t53 at 5.
There dry weight is 570 on the 7 series and 670 on the 11,s.

In its 11 series configuration combined with the chinook CH47
it could carry alot of Coronas.

Would you like to cross over to the Dark side Jeff?
Here is a great description of these engines:
http://www.chinook-helicopter.com/st...as/engine.html

With our 714 engines, we have a max gross weight of 50,000 lbs. Our engines burn on an average 2000 lb/ hr during cruise flight. You know, when you see a chinook flying by and you see a trail of smoke coming out the back, don't think that it's on fire. They're just barbecueing!!

About the drive shaft...the engines have a nosebox transmission which rotates the driveshaft 90 degrees to the center of the aircraft which meet in the middle to a combining transmission. This transmission then distributes the power down a long drive shaft which links the forward and aft rotors and keeps them in sync. This is why we inspect our drive shaft so closely!

Do you have the ability to stop your output shaft?

Gerry
Gerry,

We have no ability to stop our output shaft as there is a clutch engagement that occurs during run-up. This clutch allows us to continue flying should there be an engine failure. The clutch disengages and we fly single engine. It's not that bad, unless we're carrying a load. We practice single engine failures a lot...
