Can Blender simulate thrust?

Hi, I’m new to this forum, but I’ve been using the modeling side of Blender for the past few years. I’ve been working in the BGE recently but have not got too far with Python yet. I want to know how an object could be propelled through the air like an aircraft (with a jet engine or some such), simulating thrust vectoring. Can this be achieved? And if so, how?

Thank you.

Thanks a lot!
