The PW1000G Pure Power® New Engine Concept and Its Impact on MRO
Civil aircraft and aero engine designers are faced with today's aviation and environmental challenges, such as carbon dioxide emissions, air pollution, noise, and high, volatile fuel prices. Evolutionary improvements are not sufficient to meet future expectations for improvement. Game-changing new models are required for new aviation engine concepts, and as such, MTU Aero Engines and Pratt & Whitney jointly collaborated to create the PW1000G Pure Power® Geared Turbofan. This presentation will highlight the benefits, their impact on MRO services, and required technology developments to support future aircraft concepts.
