I think that it can be consider as the third engine.

It's the least important engine. The Third Engine is only used in an afterburner flight or in a high speed flight or a VTOL flight, right?

The Air Force and aviation industry never have a TurboKat in their hands. So I guess that the guys would have to make their own special rules for the TurboKat.

>In other words, is the right numbered before the left, or what?

OK. I think that the Right engine is Number One, the Left engine is Number Two, and the Middle engine is Number Three. If we're talking about the TurboKat that is. And also this is only my opinion.

Of course maybe they use "L,M,R" instead of "1,2,3".

BTW, is there a "FAA" or something like that in the Kat world?
