Recently, commercial airlines have been seeking more efficient aircraft technology. The International Civil Aviation Organization [ICAO] and the public have put pressure on them to reduce harmful emissions. To meet airline needs, aero-engine manufacturers are developing a revolutionary power planetary gearbox that will be implemented into the main shaft of commercial aircraft turbo engines. This gearbox will increase engine power while still conforming to new pollution standards. Almost all…
