With more than 13,000 large commercial engines installed today, Pratt & Whitney provides dependable power to hundreds of airlines and operators every day.
Revolutionary Performance Advancements
Our innovations in powerplant design continue to set the pace for progress in aviation. Our technologies have made aviation ever-more sustainable, changed the boundaries of time and shortened the distance between people and places. We launched the wide-body age with the JT9D and the narrow-body age with the JT8D, lowered fuel consumption with the PW2000 and V2500, and introduced the world to ultra-efficient aviation with the geared fan. Along the way we have logged more than a billion hours of flight, and we have transported millions of parcels and passengers around the world.
Pratt & Whitney GTF™ Engine
The GTF engine is the only modern geared propulsion system in commercial service today, and the foundation for increasing the effectiveness of more sustainable technologies. With more than 23 million recorded flight hours and a roadmap of innovations ahead, the reliable path to sustainable growth is here.
The PW4000 112-inch engine, an ultra-high-thrust model covering the 74,000 to 90,000 pound-thrust class, is the reliability, experience and Extended-range Twin-engine Operations (ETOPS) leader for the 777 aircraft, providing the best customer value.
