How to loft cut the area between two sketches to the area between another two sketches

Question by Robert Beres

I am trying to model a basic engine profile. There is an overall inlet at the front, a hole through the center for the core air and an area hole outside of the core for the bypass air with structure in between the core and bypass holes as well as around the bypass hole. I am struggling to loft cut the area between sketches for the bypass hole. Can anyone recommend a best practice for this? Thanks!

I found the easiest way to do this was to use the revolve cut feature rather than the loft cut. Here is video to show you what I did and some screen shots.

I apologize for my question being unclear. I was able to accomplish what I wanted by creating an assembly, but I am asking how to do this while keeping everything in one part.

save the assembly as part, it'll create multi body part, at least SW 2014 does that.
