V2500 reaches new operational milestone
The V2500 engine program reached a new operational milestone when two first-run V2527-A5 engines powering TAM’s A320ceo aircraft remained on wing without a shop visit for nearly 20,000 cycles and 30,000 flight hours. The engines – V12339 and V12341, rated at 27,000 pounds of thrust, are estimated to have each flown in excess of 9.5 million miles since installation. TAM Linhas Aereas took delivery of the engines in July 2006 and operated them for 7.5 years with no removals. The engines contain original OEM parts.
