So it is going to be kind of like a turboprop? The turbine will spin the fan? Where does the heat from the turbine exhaust?

The hot gas is inside the thin wall stainless pipes which are placed in the rear carbon nozzles and high speed cold fan air in the gap will prevent heat damage of carbon parts.

Finally, the Likai got all parts of the prototype Pegasus turbofan engine casing put together. Now waiting for core engin from KingTech to make it alive.

So the fan will be spun from the front part of the turbine ? Via a planetary reduction gear ? Where is the starter of the turbine be ?

The fan is driven by a secondary power turbine, not front part of the core turbine. Basically, the power plant is a two spool turbo-shaft engine similar to kingTech K-100 TP or JetCat SPT-15 but with different gearbox and powered by a K-210 core turbine, so the starter is located in the same place as usual.

That is fantastic. Be careful of static electricity.

I have no experience of such big carbon part. Is the static electricity problem coming from the friction between high speed air flow and carbon casing? Need to hear your suggestion.

Yes a guy in California (Ewald Schuster) tried to make a very similar design many years ago, maybe 15 years? He hand made the turbine, the free turbine gearbox etc.

It had a big carbon fiber fan and he never got the static charge under control, at least from what I remember.

Maybe a case for some electrical binding between components?

Finally, the first Pegasus turbofan engine for SM AV-8B was finished and fired up in this morning. The test bench was not finished yet, so the test run was in idle speed.

That is reduction gear box between power turbine and fan.
