Pratt & Whitney launched an enhanced website showcasing the GTF engine family. The site details the Geared Turbofan’s advanced, fuel efficient and environmentally friendly single-aisle engine characteristics. Pratt & Whitney says the site also adds new digital features, including an engine spotter’s guide, multimedia gallery and interactive route map highlighting the engine’s benefits. See the new website at https://pwgtf.com/.
The company says more than 750 GTF-powered aircraft have been delivered to 48 airlines around the world. With more than six million engine flight hours of experience, Pratt & Whitney estimates that its GTF engines have “collectively saved customers nearly 350 million gallons of fuel, while avoiding over 3 million metric tonnes of carbon emissions.” The GTF maintenance, repair and overhaul (MRO) network is available on three continents, Pratt & Whitney says.
Since entering into service in early 2016, P&W says the GTF engine family is delivering on the promised ability to reduce fuel burn by up to 20 percent, and to dramatically reduce regulated emissions and noise footprint.
