My father introduce me to the world of model
air planes and pulse Jets in about 1948. I standing about ten
feet away when this guy fired up his pulse jet that was mounted
to a short winged speed plane that was attached to two 30 feet
control lines. I could not believe the incredible ear defying
sound that came out of that small engine. What even impressed
me even more was the speed of the plane as it flew around the
the guy operating the controls. Over the years I have been infatuated
with all kind of Rocket and Jet engines. A lot of times when
my friends come over to my house. They say Ky, Lets fire up
something. There has been a number of times I will say go get
some hot dogs and we will have a wiener roast. I will roast
the hot dogs in about ten seconds. Then I stick it in the hot
thrust of a Jet engine. Over the next few months I will post
a lot of information and pictures of my Pulse and Pressure Jets
that I have collected through the years.

Pulse Jet powered Go Kart.
Note: The Thrust augmenter on the back of the
jet. this increases the thrust performance by a good margin.
