Environment is one of the most important concerns in the aerospace industry. Engine efficiency is directly linked to the amount of harmful emissions produced. Modelling of gas turbine engines needs to be improved in order to reduce these emissions. The purpose of this study is to model the engine using two outputs: the thrust, which is the force moving the aircraft forward, and the fuel flow used to produce the thrust. These outputs are modelled as function of three inputs: the Mach number, the altitude and the throttle lever angle. The data needed was acquired using the Research Aircraft Flight Simulator (RAFS) from the Laboratory of Applied Research in Active Controls, Avionics and Aeroservoelasticity (LARCASE). Key words: engine, turbofan, modelling, flight tests, identification, validation
