The article analyzes the trends forming the technical appearance of the power plant of combat aircraft the new generation. The main directions of development of the aviation elements of the power plant. It is shown that the motor is a variable working process with a wide regulation components and integrated with the airframe has significant advantages over the traditional scheme of a bypass engine. Complete integration of the power plant to the airframe makes it necessary to develop an integrated automatic control system, which will manage the dynamic characteristics of the aircraft taking into account the mutual relations existing subsystems, airframe and powerplant. Identify the main properties of the fighters of the new generation.
