I read in the 21 Oct issue of Flight International that there are studies to test the feasability of re-engining the 737-200 with the P&W PW-6000. Anyone else see that blurb in the World Airliners Part 1"?

I am posting this on the tech/ops forum as well.

The B732 would have problems with the PW6000 as the engines could possibly scrape the ground, seeing how low the a/c is relative to a B767 or a B757.

The PW6000 is about the same size as the JT8D.

If they built a similar nacelle integral to the wing, as opposed to an extended pylon, it could certainly fit.

I see the MD-80 to be a more logical candidate for the PW6000 (6022?) for use with PAX or PF variants. I would even think P&W might take the JT8D-200's in trade for the 6000's.

Unfortunately, I don't think the PW6000 will have a roar of a JT8D. It would be nice to give these planes a few more years of useful life. Are there any interested buyers of this?

One reason for re-engining the 732 with the PW6000 is that the CFM engines on the 733 to 739 are not designed for short distance / high frequency flights. A prime example is AQ, which is why they got rid of their 733s and 734s for inter-island flights, and got more 732s (with low hours and cycles, and "young").

It will require some modifications to the engine mount/pylon, and the wing, and the landing gear.

In Hawaii, AQ's 732s are the loudest commercial airliners. The quietest are HA's 712s.

As far as the MD-80, it may also be feasible to replace the JT8Ds, eventhough they are the newest versions. Wondering about the 727 and the PW6000 (or the BR-710) ...

I think the BR710 would be weak. I think the 715 might be more appropriate.
