The leader in fractional business aviation.

Designed for light to mid-size business jet platforms and the high expectations of the fractional ownership business jet market. Impressive maintenance intervals and easy on-wing maintenance in an airline-style business operation. The PW500 engine family combines high performance and low fuel consumption with excellent operating economics.

Eight PW500 Models Have Been Produced Ranging in Thrust from 2,900 to 4,500 Pounds.

The PW500 is a two-spool engine with a three-stage high pressure compressor driven by a single stage, cooled high pressure turbine and a two-stage low pressure turbine driving a robust, efficient fan. The PW535 and PW545 Series incorporate an added compressor boost stage driven by the fan. A high efficiency reverse-flow combustor provides low emissions and fuel consumption. An advanced exhaust mixer further contributes to the engine family's low fuel burn and noise. Furthermore, the latest Full-Authority Digital Engine Control (FADEC) in many of the PW500 models provides reduced pilot workload and advanced engine health monitoring/diagnostics, assuring a high standard in aircraft dispatch availability. The result is a durable, compact, lightweight design that powers the majority of fractional business jet operators.



The PW500 family is comprised of 3 engine series and 8 models, ranging from 2,900 to 4,500 pounds thrust.
