Whereas the engines in propeller-powered aircraft generally achieve their maximum efficiency at much lower speeds and altitudes, jet engines and aircraft achieve maximum efficiency (see specific impulse) at speeds close to or even well above the speed of sound. Jet aircraft generally cruise at faster than about M 0.8 (609mph, 981km/h or 273m/s) at altitudes around 10,000–15,000 metres (33,000–49,000ft) or more.

Griffith, who published a paper in July 1926 on compressors and turbines, also deserves credit.
