Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Luigi Stipa (1900-1992) was an Italian aeronautical, hydraulic, and civil engineer and aircraft designer who invented the "intubed propeller" for aircraft, a concept that some aviation historians view as the predecessor of the turbofan engine. Stipa was born in Ascoli Piceno, Italy in 1900. He left school to serve in the Italian Army's Bersaglieri Corps during World War I. After the war, he earned academic degrees in aeronautical engineering, hydraulic engineering and civil engineering. He went to work for the Italian Air Ministry, where he rose to the position of general inspector of the Engineering Division of the Regia Aeronautica (Italian Royal Air Force).
