Geared Around a New Era of Flight

Why has the Pratt & Whitney Geared Turbofan™ (GTF) engine been selected to power the vast majority of next-generation, medium-range jets? Because only this can deliver game-changing improvements in fuel burn—years ahead of the competition—with noise and maintainability advantages unmatched by conventional engines. It’s also the only engine on the market with mature flight-proven technology.

Airbus has announced that it will offer Pratt & Whitney’s award-winning geared turbofan™ engine as an ultra-fuel-efficient new engine option (neo) for its A320neo family of aircraft. A320neo aircraft offer significant fuel, emissions, noise and operating cost benefits compared to the standard A320 family.

Pratt & Whitney’s advanced engine architecture – proven in unprecedented rig, ground and flight testing – delivers double-digit improvements in fuel efficiency, environmental emissions, as well as a 75% reduction in noise.

The Bombardier CSeries is the only family of aircraft optimized for the 100-to 145-seat market; it is not a stretched, shrunk, or reconfigured version of another aircraft.

Powered exclusively by the GTF engine, the CSeries will slash noise footprints by 75% while burning 20% less fuel than the competition. It delivers widebody comfort in a single aisle aircraft, and a 15% operating cost advantage.
