The jet engine was patented in 1930 by a young British Royal Air Force pilot, Frank Whittle (later Sir Frank). He had great difficulty convincing anyone that it would be useful. Things were different in Germany. When Hans von Ohain thought up a similar engine, it was immediately taken up by a major place company. The first jet plane, a Heinkel HE-178, flew from a German airfield in 1939, two years before the first British jet flight.
