This section covers the main systems found on small airplanes. These include the engine, propeller, and induction systems, as well as the ignition, fuel, lubrication, cooling, electrical, landing gear, autopilot, and environmental control systems. A comprehensive introduction to gas turbine engines is included at the end of this section.

The airplane engine and propeller, often referred to as a powerplant, work in combination to produce thrust. The powerplant propels the airplane and drives the various systems that support the operation of an airplane.
