Pratt & Whitney will deliver about 2,500 geared turbofan engines in the next three years, says Chris Calio, president of Pratt & Whitney commercial engines. The engine family will become the predominant engine in the OEM’s portfolio by 2030.
However, the V2500 will still play a big role because 6,000 of the engines, with an average of 8-8.5 years, are in service today. Half of the V2500 engines haven’t had a shop visit yet, so the OEM projects about 1,000 V2500 shop visits per year for the next 7-8 years, says Calio.
