Favorite design and analysis tools: I have my own code for compressor and turbine stage design and use a NASA program for blade generation. In most cases I hand draw complete gas turbine engine layouts from which detailed drawing are accomplished by hand. Drawings needed for machine or cast

For managing CAD data Jon's company uses: None

Hobbies and activities: Piston aircraft engines from WWI & WWII time frame

Inspired by: Provide a product for the bettermint of mankind and future generations. Turbomachinery I believe will replace the reciprocating engines in the fuuture as long as it will compete in price - with that in place all the attributes of a turbine will win over for use.
