Services for PW1100G/PW1500G engines
With its PW1000G engine family, Pratt & Whitney developed a Geared Turbofan™ technology which delivers reductions in fuel-burn, environmental emissions, engine noise and operating costs. The PW1100G engine was chosen by Airbus as the launch engine of the A320neo family aircraft, while the PW1500G exclusively powers Bombardier C Series aircraft.
