Engine Numbering Systems

Recommended Posts

In the fixed wing side multi engine aircraft are numbered from left to right from the view of the pilot. what about a 212? or other multi engine helicopter? does left to right stand or is it the master and the slave?

Hmmm?? How about a S-58T, where the engines are facing aft??

 

 

shouldn't be a problem there, last I saw, the 58t was single engine (as was the 58)

Technically you are correct, as Pratt considers the twin pac one engine. It consists of two powerplants and one combining gearbox making up one engine.

So by that theory the 212 is also a single engine (and I don't mean the Eagle 212S)
