Turbofans are one of the most common types of engines found in modern aircraft models, generally being found on commercial airliners, various military planes, business jets, and more. Turbofans combine many of the best features of propeller and turbine engines, and their popularity comes as a result of their high thrust generation and optimal fuel efficiency. If you have taken the time to examine the turbofan engines of a commercial airliner at an airport or on another type of aircraft, you may have noticed that most have a white spiral that is painted on the center of the spiral. While this design is surely aesthetically pleasing, it actually serves a few important purposes, those of which we will discuss in this blog.While there is no legal requirement or industry standard for painting spirals on the aircraft engine spinner, it is still something that one will find on a majority of aircraft with turbofans. The designs of the spirals may also vary from company to company, as some may feature more unique designs or utilize shapes and patterns such as apostrophes, balls, commas, or even hurricane patterns. Regardless of design or implementation, these spirals serve two main purposes: alerting crew members of the status of the engine and keeping birds away from the engine assembly.
