The General Electric J85 was a small single-shaft turbojet engine, capable of generating up to 4000 lbf (18 kN) of dry thrust. It had an axial-flow compressor with 8 stages. It was originally designed for the USAF's McDonnell ADM-20 Quail decoy missile, but was also used in the Canadair CT-114 Tutor jet trainer. The engine was also used on civilian bizjets such as the Lear Jet 23 and the Hamburger Flugzeugbau HFB320 under the designation General Electric CJ610. A version of it is used in the Scaled Composites White Knight aircraft, the carrier for the Scaled Composites SpaceShipOne spacecraft. Jet engine diagram Turbojets are the simplest and oldest kind of general purpose jet engine. ... The pound-force is a non-SI unit of force or weight (properly abbreviated lbf or lbf). The pound-force is equal to a mass of one pound multiplied by the standard acceleration due to gravity on Earth (which is defined as exactly 9. ... The axial flow compressor is an improvement on the centrifugal compressor previously used in turbine engines,though small and micro turbines use centrifugal compressors with relative advantages (in terms of pressure ratios achieveable per stage of compression). ...
