A jet engine is a type of air-breathing internal combustion engine often used on aircraftthe principle of all jet engines is essentially the same they accelerate a mass (air and combustion products) in one direction and, from newton's third law of motion, the engine experiences thrust in the opposite direction. On this day in 1949, the world's first jet-propelled airliner, the british de havilland comet, makes its maiden test-flight in england the jet engine would ultimately revolutionize the airline industry, shrinking air travel time in half by. Creating an episode for the history engine gives them the opportunity to learn history by doing the work—researching, writing, and publishing—of a historian. When sir isaac newton formulated his third law of motion in the 17th century (stated simply: every action has an equal and opposite reaction) he made possible an invention that would ultimately result in the high-speed travel we now take for granted: the jet engine.

The very first aircraft used engine-driven propellers to drive them through the air and, of course, many planes still use propellers today however, if you want to achieve serious speed in the air then you’re going to need an awful lot of thrust, and for that you need a jet engine.
Jet engine: jet engine, any of a class of internal-combustion engines that propel aircraft by means of the rearward discharge of a jet of fluid, usually hot exhaust gases generated by burning fuel with air drawn in from the atmosphere.
