Monday Morning Question

Illustration for article titled Monday Morning Question

Is there a difference between an engine and a power plant? Or is “power plant” simply another word for engine? And, is power plant two words or one?


In my aviation writings, I have generally used powerplant as a synonym for engine simply to have variety in language. Now I’m wondering if there are semantics that set the two terms apart with specific meanings.
