The problem of excessive weight in an aircraft 10 powered by at least one turbine engine 12 as a result of the incorporation of both a starter for the turbine engine 12 and a source of emergency power is avoided by utilizing a turbine wheel 62 to alternatively start the engine 12 or drive an emergency power generator 102. The turbine wheel 62 may be driven either by compressed air from a ground source 34 or an engine bleed 32 or, in the alternative, by hot gases of combustion from a stored energy source 36 in an emergency situation.
An aircraft engine starting and power generating system for use with an airframe mounted accessory drive unit (AMAD) associated with a turbine engine comprising: a rotary turbine wheel; a clutch connected to said turbine wheel and having selectively operable first and second rotary outputs, one adapted to be connected as an input to an AMAD and the other connected as an input to a power generating apparatus; a nozzle structure for said turbine wheel and adapted to direct compressed air from a source such as a bleed air outlet of a turbine engine or a gro...
