Engineers and scientists at Pratt & Whitney Aircraft
developed the piston engines that wrote aviation history j
for three decades. Then came the jet age, and again it /
was the P & W A team that came up with the mighty /

world today. Behind such accomplishments, of course, V c
stand many development tools., tools like the house that
jet engines built: the Andrew Willgoos Laboratory.
Located on the eastern bank of the Connecticut River
in East Hartford, this windowless, thick concrete-walled (
laboratory has been growing almost continuously since V
its initial completion in 1950 As more powerful, far
more advanced turbojet engines are conceived, the means f
for testing them in development stages must itself under- /
go carefully calculated alteration. Hence, authorship of /
todays specifications for Willgoos Laboratory properly
belongs to the experimental engines it is testing today. \
Similarly, tomorrows proportions, capacities and equip- \

Behind the ponderous walls of this multi-million-dollar
structure lies the wherewithal to simulate many of the f
rigorous flight conditions to be encountered by military J
and commercial aircraft The range of these conditions l
must vary from ambient pressures and temperatures in V
