Scholars: Frank Whittle was only 21 when he first
mentioned his idea of turbo-jet flight to his employers
at the Air Ministry. They did not show any interest and
a patent he had taken out lapsed, as he did not have the
funds to renew it. However, in 1934 the RAF sent him to
Peterhouse (Cambridge University) as a mature student where
his new ideas were encouraged. When he left Cambridge, having
obtained a first in Mechanical Sciences, he set up a company
called Power Jets to develop his jet engine. The first test
flight took place on 15 May 1941, and lasted seventeen minutes,
having achieved a top speed of 370 mph.
