Pre-2007 talk[edit]

'Bold text'Bold textwhy do we have 'Aircraft Engine Manufacturers' and 'Aircraft engine manufacturers' - two apparently different lists!

Could you provide links to all the ones that you've found? Estel 12:56, Nov 26, 2004 (UTC)

Which? Lists, or manufacturers :-)

The first is self evident -
the second is something of a chore - because of the way firms have merged and split some are not wholly obvious. How many different version of RR have there been (RR, RR plc, RR (1971)) and similarly Bristol-Siddeley and its precursors are also traceable back under various names.

That said, there is little point in keeping two lists, with subtly different spellings!

Power Jets (the original Whittle 'startup')? Linuxlad 15:30, 6 Dec 2004 (UTC) User:Gunter Yes, that's right!

User:Gunter Are we including (car) engines that were used in planes? Or just Engines specifically made for planes? If the later, do one off modifications of car engines by the manufacturer count?

Gunter, you've added a lot of names, but be careful about wikilinking them without chacking where that wikilink will go. Many go to articles which are about something different. I've listed this page on Wikipedia:Cleanup for this reason. In answer to your question, I'd say the list should only include companies who mass-produced aircraft engines.dramatic 18:23, 6 Dec 2004 (UTC)

Can we have fuel burn per hour for all the listed engines?

I agree, we should only list manufacturers of aircraft engines produced as such. Askari Mark | Talk 17:38, 20 September 2006 (UTC)

Need to fix the mixture of dashes long and short (to short) 'en' and 'em'?! Don't ask me! Nimbus (Cumulus nimbus floats by) 23:21, 28 July 2010 (UTC)
