  Bristol Pegasus radial engine | Aircraft Blueprint | Aviation History | Airplane Plans
The Pegasus was a 9 cylinder one-row radial aircraft engine designed as the follow-on to the Bristol Aeroplane Company's very successful Bristol Jupiter, following lessons learned in the Mercury effort.
The Pegasus was the same size, displacement and general steel/aluminium construction as the Jupiter, but other improvements allowed the RPM to be increased from 1950 to 2600 for take-off power.
The most famous use of the Pegasus is on the Fairey Swordfish, and it was also used on the Bristol Bombay.

The Pegasus vectored-thrust turbofan is a two-shaft design featuring three LP and eight HP compressor stages driven by two LP and two HP turbine stages respectively.
The Pegasus 11 powered the first generation Harriers, the RAF's Hawker Siddeley Harrier, the USMC AV-8A and the Royal Navy's Sea Harrier.
This latest Pegasus has also enabled a highly effective radar equipped version of the AV-8 Harrier II to be introduced.

 Bristol Aero Collection
Bristol started building aero engines on the Filton site around 1920, but the line can be traced back to the Brazil-Staker motorcar manufacturer, who built Rolls-Royce engines under licence during World War I. The company was taken over by Cosmos Engineering, who built the Mercury and the Jupiter radial engines.
The Bristol Hercules has 14 cylinders in two rows, and is a sleeve-valved radial air-cooled engine.
A scaled-down version of the engine, the Bristol Siddeley Gyron Junior, was used on the Bristol 188 stainless steel research aircraft, which was designed to investigate the effect of supersonic speeds on airframe structure.

A metallic futuristic test plane, the model T188, was also constructed in their factory next to Filton aerodrome to the north of Bristol city centre.
The Jupiter competed with the Armstrong Siddeley Jaguar[?] through the 1920s, but Bristol put more effort into their design, and by 1929, the Jupiter was clearly superior.
In the 1930s they developed a new line of radials based on the sleeve valve principle, which would develop into some of the most powerful piston engines in the world, and could continue to be sold into the 1950s.

 pegasus
In Greek Mythology, Pegasus was a winged horse that was the child of Poseidon and the Gorgon Medusa, despite both of them being human in shape.
Descriptions vary as to its birth, some say that it sprung from Medusa's neck as Perseus beheaded her, which fits in with his parentage; others say that he was born of the earth as Medusa's blood spilled onto it, in which case Poseidon would not be his father.
Pegasus was eventually turned into a constellation (see above), but a single feather fell to the earth near the city of Tarsus (hence its name).

 Bristol Pegasus - Wikipedia
Il Bristol Pegasus era un motore stellare per aerei progettato quale successore del fortunato motore Jupiter prodotto dalla stessa ditta.
In seguito ci fu un ulteriore incremento e i primi Pegasus III di produzione fornivano 690 hp (515 kW) per arrivare poi ai 1.010 hp (750 kW) degli ultimi modelli in versione XXII dotati di un turbocompressore migliorato.
Come per il predecessore Jupiter anche del Pegasus venne ceduta la licenza di costruzione che fu acquisita dalla industria polacca PZL che montò questi motori su i suoi velivoli PZL P.23 e PZL P.37.

 Pegasus 3 Engine BS 916
The Pegasus 3 is the earliest surviving example of the prototype engine for vertical/short takeoff and landing (V/STOL) jets, namely the Royal Air Force's Harriers and US Marine Corps' AV-8Bs.
All Pegasus engines are distinguished by four rotatable exhaust nozzles that can direct the exhaust downward to lift the aircraft, rearward to propel it during wing-borne flight, and to any angle in between to enable transitions between the two flight regimes.
Bristol Aero-Engines Ltd. (now part of Rolls-Royce in Bristol) designed the engine while Hawker Aircraft (now part of British Aerospace) was concurrently designing the V/STOL aircraft in the late 1950s.

El Pegasus era del mismo taman-o, la dislocación y la construcción general de steel/aluminium que el Júpiter, pero otras mejorías permitieron que la RPM fuera aumentada a partir de 1950 a 2600 para la energía de despegue.
Esto mejoró funcionamiento considerablemente del hp del Júpiter 580 (430 kilovatios), al primer Pegasus Ii con hp 635 (474 kilovatios), a hp 690 (515 kilovatios) en el primer modelo III de la producción, y eventual a los 1010 hp del tarde-modelo Xxii (750 kilovatios) con los sobrealimentadores mejorados (despegue máximo en todos los casos).

 PZL P.37 - Polish Aviation History Page
The first prototype, powered by two Bristol Pegasus XII air-cooled radials flew on 13 December 1936, and while the performance conformed to the expectations, a number of other problems were revealed.
Because of its good performance, excellent handling characteristics (especially maneuverability), huge bomb load and exceptionally clean lines, a considerable foreign interest in both the P.37C, as well as the future P.37D variant developed, but priority was given to the fulfillment of the domestic order, which meanwhile had been expanded to cover 124 airplanes in total.
The first P.37B aircraft with Pegasus XX engines were ready in August 1938, and production reached the pace of 14 aircraft a month by the end of 1938.
