V2500 PRODUCT APPLICATIONS EXPANDED TO 35,000 LB. DERIVATIVE

 V2500 PRODUCT APPLICATIONS EXPANDED TO 35,000 LB. DERIVATIVE
 GLASTONBURY, Conn., Feb. 27 /PRNewswire/ -- The shareholders of IAE International Aero Engines AG have proposed major expansion in the range of market applications offered for V2500 turbofan.
 IAE has responsibility for managing marketing and supporting the V2500 turbofan project on behalf of its shareholders -- Pratt & Whitney, Rolls Royce, JAEC, MTU and FlatAvio.
 Previous marketing activities had been directed at applications in the range of approximately 18,000 lb. to 30,000 lb. take-off thrust. This significant announcement proposes expanding those applications up to 35,000 lb. thrust.
 Speaking from its Glastonbury, Conn., headquarters, IAE's president, Roland Dilda said, "The V2500 is now well-established as the premier product in the 22-30,000 lb. thrust bracket. It provides the most reliable, quietest, cleanest and most efficient power for the world's 90-180 seat aircraft.
 "The currently offered V2500-A5/D5 has a maximum rated thrust of 30,000 lb. Growth within this design is available which will satisfy all the near term aircraft weight increases which we can envisage.
 "However, in the medium to long term, IAE predicts a requirement for a power plant with a thrust up to 35,000 lb. In order to compete effectively within that thrust class, it was necessary to review the collaboration agreement and to clarify IAE's marketing responsibility to cover this opportunity."
 IAE's preliminary studies are centered around a V2500 derivative engine, provisionally designated the V2535, with an increased diameter fan and a revised low pressure compressor and turbine configuration.
 The new engine will maintain the V2500's record of high efficiency and low noise and emissions, and because of its highly derivative design it will have excellent reliability. The engine will be suitable for all twin-engined aircraft in the 180-200,000 lb. maximum take-off weight class.
