Powering all of the US Air Force’s F-15 Eagles and the majority of the world fleet of F-16 Fighting Falcons, Pratt & Whitney’s family of F100 engines has been selected by 23 air forces around the world.
With more than 7,200 engines produced and over 24 million flight hours, the F100 fighter engine has a remarkable record of safety, maintenance cost and reliability. The F100 engine has benefited from the continued infusion of new technology since its introduction and continues to meet the demands of the fighter aircraft mission in a world of ever changing threats.
Pratt & Whitney’s JT8D and JT8D-200 series engines are one of the most popular modern commercial engines ever made. More than 14,750 of them have been built, amassing more than 673 million hours of reliable service since 1964.
The eight models that make up the JT8D family cover a thrust range from 14,000 to 17,000 pounds. The newer JT8D-200 engine offers 18,500 to 21,700 pounds of thrust, and exclusively powers the popular MD-80 aircraft. The JT8D-200 builds on the family’s excellent reliability and low maintenance costs while meeting noise and emission regulations. It entered service in 1980.
Today, a reconfigured JT8D-219 engine powers the US Air Force’s re-engined E-8C joint surveillance target and radar system aircraft (J Stars). The first reconfigured JT8D engine was delivered in March 2011.
The PW2000 powers all models of the twin-engine Boeing 757, and exclusively powers the F117 for the four-engine C-17 Globemaster III military transport. The PW2040 model also powers the US Air Force’s C-32A, the military version of the 757. The PW2000 engine entered revenue service in 1984 as the first commercial engine with FADEC (Full Authority Digital Electronic Control) technology. Pratt & Whitney introduced an improved version of the PW2000, the reduced model offers improved reliability and durability for long-on-wing times and reduced total maintenance cost, along with excellent environmental performance.
The Pratt & Whitney PW4000 is a family of high bypass turbofan aircraft engines with certified thrust ranging from 52,000-99,040 pounds. Built as the successor to the JT9D series engines, it has found much wider application than its predecessor. The PW4000 is divided into three distinct families based on fan diameter. The first family is the 94 inch diameter fan with certified thrust ranging from 52,000 to 62,000 pounds. It powers the Airbus A310-300, A300-600 aircraft, Boeing 747-200 / 300 and McDonnell Douglas MD-11 aircraft and is certified for 180-minute ETOPS if used in twinjets. The second family is the 100 inch diameter fan engine developed specifically for Airbus Industry’s A330 twinjet. It has certified thrust from 64,500 to 68,600 pounds. Model numbers are PW4074, PW4077, PW4077D, PW4084, PW4084D, PW4090 and PW4098. It entered service in June 1995 with United Airlines, and was the first jet engine with 180-minute ETOPS certification. It can power all the 777 versions except the 300ER & 200 LR.
International Aero Engines brings advantages in technical excellence and manufacturing expertise, with a reputation of producing the engine of choice for the Airbus A320 family. V2500 engines offer the most advanced technologies in the 22,000- to 33,000 pound thrust range with the lowest overall emissions and a time on-wing improvement while further enhancing the engine’s durability.
