  • Twin-engine aircraft are useful when you are required to take additional payload or weight because they are more powerful as compared to single-engine.
  • Maintenance cost of twin-engine combat aircraft is higher as compared to single-engine combat aircraft.
  • The biggest benefit of twin-engine aircraft is that when one engine fails, it can fly on the other one, but its performance, to the great extent is decreased and could be easily hit by other aircraft.
