It depends what you mean by smallest. There are some hobbiest turbojets that measure no larger than a soda can. As far as operational flying engines, the best examples I can find are williams and agilis.

Smallest I know of is a jet made by Williams weighing in at 85 lbs to be used in the very inexpensive biz-jets that are being designed now by Safire...

Well these are not real small but they are small,-

F107-WR-101 turbofan-which powerd a USAF AGM-86B Air Launched Cruise Missile-

F-121 fanjet-which powerd a AGM-136A Tacit Rainbow-

And no Sushka the APU is not the smallest jet engine,They make mini turbos that are the size of a film case now that is small-cheers!!!!!! Smile

Always keep your number of landings equal to your number of take-offs
