The secret of the PW1000G engine is not the Fan Drive Gear System (FDGS). It’s the game-changing geared turbofan (GTF) architecture enabled by the FDGS, and supported by a family of engines at the highest level of technology readiness. We don’t have to compromise on noise, maintenance, and installation, to get a big improvement in fuel burn. We get much higher efficiency out of every module in the engine.
Pratt & Whitney PurePower® Engines
Dependable Engines to the rescue.
The numbering scheme for each PW1000G engine model follows the same historical Pratt & Whitney pattern; the first number represents the generation - in this case, 1 or 1,000. The second number denotes the customer: 1 for Airbus, 2 for Mitsubishi, 4 for Irkut, and 5 for Bombardier. The last two numbers indicate the thrust class: 24 for 24,000 pounds of thrust, and so forth. And finally, the "G" stands for a geared turbofan engine. Below, the full PW1000G engine product table is listed in order of thrust.
