This paper presents an approach to selecting the various ratings for Gas Turbine engines in the fixed wing airplane application. The approach followed is first to estimate the minimum airplane power demands to pass its certification requirements under worst operating conditions. These power demands are then checked against those available from the engine within its certification requirements. Meaningful trade off studies, involving both the airplane and engine designers, can thus be conducted fairly early on in the airplane/engine design cycle to arrive at engine rating’s which will best suit both the vehicle and its power plant within their respective certification constraints.
