Issued: August 2, 2016
Filed: November 6, 2015

Inventor: Willliam Bekoe Boateng

An aircraft engine guard, for protecting an aircraft engine against ingestion of large objects, includes a generally cone-shaped body, a base section of the rear end of the guard body and a dome section at the distal forward end of the guard body, at least three, vertical, peripherally extending walls located between the base and the dome section, with successive ones of the peripheral walls having different peripheral dimensions, peripherally cylindrical, with the dimension increasing from the base toward the dome section. A plurality of air intake openings are defined in and between the peripheral walls with at least one dimensional size which is small enough to prevent having birds from being able to pass through the guard into the aircraft engine.
