Aircraft -- Propulsion units and components -- Methods of numbering and describing direction of rotation
This standard was last reviewed and confirmed in 2015. Therefore this version remains current.
Specifies the methods of numbering aircraft engines, engine cylinders and combustion chambers, on drawings, for example, and the methods of describing the direction of rotation of main shafts and rotors and or propellers.
