Using Ceramic Parts In Jet Aircraft Engines

The first stages of a gas turbine after the combuster require bleeding of cool air from the compressor to stand the hot gasses from the combuster melting the blades.  This causes engine efficiency losses.  Using ceramics will lower the amount of bleeding required and allow greater engine efficiencies.  Which save fuel and makes travel cheaper.  A win for everybody.
