Aviation Capital Group selects P&W PurePower engines for Airbus A320neo aircraft
Aviation Capital Group has selected Pratt & Whitney PurePower PW1100G-JM engines to power 12 firm A320neo aircraft. Deliveries are scheduled to start in 2018. Each of the twelve ACG Airbus A320neo family aircraft will be powered by two PurePower engines. Pratt & Whitney has announced orders for more than 3,500 engines that include announced and unannounced firm orders, plus options. The PurePower family of engines uses an advanced gear system allowing the engine’s fan to operate at a different speed than the low-pressure compressor and turbine. The combination of the gear system and an all-new advanced core deliver the improvements in fuel efficiency, environmental emissions and noise.
