Pratt and Whitney’s Newly Profound GTF Engine Begins Service

Pratt and Whitney geared turbofan engine (GTF) has been placed on a A230neo aircraft to be used for a low-cost air service for Mexican airline, VivaAerobus. The first flight was successfully accomplished from Monterrey to Guadalajara, Mexico accumulating a total of 9hrs and 32min in flight time. Officials at VivaAerobus believe that this will be the best option for their customers to successfully fly at a great price all while minimizing the burning of fuel. “The Pure Power Engine's lower fuel burn, 18% better on the ferry flight.”

The Initial day that the plane was set forth for duty it conducted a total of eight flights and served more over 1,160 passengers.

Pratt and Whitney continues to progress in many airlines worldwide. To date there are eight airlines that have adopted the 26 GTF- powered aircraft globally. The entire engine family that Pratt and Whitney have created have been implemented to create over 30,000 recorded revenue hours and have generated an approximate 13,000 flights.

Their focus is to reduce burning of fuel to be able to produce a cost-efficient flight worldwide and to help enlarge smaller airlines. As said by the senior vice-president of P&W commercial engine sales marketing and customer support, “The Pure Power Engine is transforming aviation through its reduced fuel burn, which will help VivaAerobus control its operating expenses."

Pratt and Whitney have continued to expand their back log and generate more orders. For the Pure power engine alone it has created 8,400 engine orders which include options that have been placed for 80 customers that are in 30 different countries.

Along with many of their accomplishments Pratt and Whitney proceeds to be a world leader in designing, manufacturing, serving aircraft engines and the making of auxiliary power units.
