mtu aero engines presents pw1100g-jm powering the a320neo

At ILA Berlin 2018 Germany’s leading engine manufacturer will present one of the world’s most eco-efficient engines, the PurePower® PW1100G-JM geared turbofan engine powering the A320neo. From April 25 to 29, MTU will showcase technological highlights from all of its business sectors – commercial and military engine technologies and new maintenance procedures – at the key aviation industry trade show in the heart of Europe. MTU’s exhibits are on display at its booth No. 301 in Hall 2, as well as at MTU’s chalet (No. 18/19) next to the runway. The company’s motto for the 2018 air show is: “Answering tomorrow’s challenges.”

In addition to the geared turbofan engine, which is built jointly by MTU and U.S. partner Pratt & Whitney, three military engines will be on display at MTU’s 250-square-meter booth: the TP400-D6 for the A400M military transport aircraft, the EJ200 for the Eurofighter Typhoon and the MTR390 for the Tiger helicopter. MTU intends to play a key role also in the development of a new military engine for a future European fighter aircraft. The company presents its concept ideas for a “Next European Fighter Engine (NEFE)” in an interactive exhibit.

In the military sector, Germany’s leading engine manufacturer will also have a presence at the German Armed Force’s Military Support Center and showcase a cutaway model of the EJ200 engine. Soldiers and MTU staff will be demonstrating how their cooperation to jointly maintain the aircraft of the German military in serviceable condition works. In the exhibition tent of U.S. aircraft manufacturer Lockheed Martin a T408 can be seen. MTU has a workshare in this GE Aviation engine, which will power Sikorsky’s new CH-53K heavy transport helicopter. Production of the engine has been underway since the beginning of the year.
