History of aircraft engines，This list is incomplete
1633: Lagari Hasan Çelebi took off with what was described to be a cone shaped rocket and then glided with wings into a successful landing
1848: John Stringfellow made a steam engine capable of powering a model, albeit with negligible payload
1903: The Wright brothers commissioned Charlie Taylor to build an inline aeroengine (12 horsepower) for the Wright Flyer
1906:Traian Vuia flew his first airplane "Vuia I" at Montesson on 18th of March, achieving the first ever "only by on-board means" flight, without any "outside assistance", be it an incline, rails, a catapult, etc.
1908: René Lorin patents a design for the ramjet engine
1909: Roger Ravaud' Gnôme rotary engine in Henry Farman's aircraft won the Grand Prix for the greatest non-stop distance flown - 180 kilometres (110 mi) - and created a world record for endurance flight
1910: Henri Coanda displays the first jet powered aircraft at the second International Aeronautic Salon in Paris; he also tries to pilot the jet aircraft however he crashlands.
1911: Adams-Farwell's rotary engines powered fixed-wing aircraft in the US
1916: Auguste Rateau suggests using exhaust-powered compressors to improve high-altitude performance, the first example of the turbocharger.
1930: in Frank Whittle submitted his first patent
1938: The German Heinkel HeS 3 turbojet propels the Heinkel He 118 into the air
1939-1942: The world's first turboprop-the Jendrassik Cs-1 is designed by the Hungarian mechanical engineer György Jendrassik
1944: Messerschmitt Me 163 Komet, the worlds first rocket propelled aircraft deployed
1947: Bell X-1 rocket propelled aircraft exceeds the sound barrier
1948: the first turboshaft engine, the 100 shp 782. In 1950 this work was used to develop the larger 280 shp (210 kW) Artouste
1949: The Leduc 010 the world's first ramjet powered aircraft flies
1950(late): Rolls-Royce Conway the worlds first production turbofan enters service
1960s: TF39 high bypass turbofan enters service delivering greater thrust and much better efficiency
1960s: X-15 rocket plane flys at more than 50 miles (80 km) altitude at more than 3,000 mph (4,800 km/h).
2002: HyShot scramjet flew in dive
2004: Hyper-X first scramjet to maintain altitude
