Abstract

IT is probably true to say that the opinion most widely held about aircraft accessory power systems is that they are a necessary evil about which nothing very much can be done. This attitude is induced in practice by the following facts i most aircraft will not operate satisfactorily without an accessory power system ii the accessory power system is normally only responsible for a very small proportion of the major failures of the aircraft and is, in any case, only an accessory and not fundamental to the design of the machine iii more maintenance hours are spent putting the accessory power system right than on almost anything else.
