2008 04 27 Airbus to test Geared TurbofaAirbus and Pratt & Whitney to test Geared Turbofan Concept

Geared Turbofan: Tests an der A340<br /> Airbus and Pratt & Whitney will partner on flight testing the Geared Turbofan engine using an Airbus-owned A340 flying test bed. The flight testing will provide first-hand experience with the performance of the Geared Turbofan engine, which targets double-digit improvements in fuel burn, environmental emissions, engine noise and operating costs.

The Airbus testing will begin in the fourth quarter of this year and will follow Pratt & Whitney's own ground and flight test program. "We are delighted at the opportunity to partner with Airbus on flight testing the Geared Turbofan engine," said Todd Kallman, president of Pratt & Whitney Commercial Engines. "Testing the Geared Turbofan engine throughout its entire operating envelope using the Airbus A340 flight test aircraft, combined with the tremendous experience of the Airbus flight test team, will provide us with valuable installation and operating data to further evaluate the performance of this new engine architecture."
