Frank Whittle was an English Royal Air Force (RAF) Officer who is credited with single-handedly inventing the turbojet engine. A child prodigy, Whittle since early showed a knack for making it big. As a child, he was passionate about flying. His mathematical genius and technical proficiency helped him realize his ambition as he overcame his physical deficiency to serve as an aircraft apprentice. Soon, he became an accomplished pilot. It was while writing his thesis that Whittle first introduced to the world the fundamental concept of turbojet engine. Despite several constraints, Whittle succeeded in realizing his dream and the first prototype ran in 1937. Over the course of his career, financial assistance and encouragement by Air Ministry helped in further development of the jet engine which was later nationalized in 1944. Meanwhile, Whittle rose up in his RAF rank, eventually receiving a knighthood and retiring as an Air Commodore. For his remarkable contribution, he was bestowed with numerous prestigious honours
