What Engine Would Be On Your 777

Thu Dec 13, 2001 3:40 am

Which type of engine would you choose to power your 777?
Once you have tasted flight, you will walk the earth with your eyes turned skyward; for there you long to return

There's something classy about having Rolls Royce on your airplane. They sound great also, look good, and are reliable. Is there really any other way to power an airplane? For me, its no contest.

Well, RR powers my favorite two planes (Tristar and 717), so I'll go with the Trent.

On a 777-200ER I would prefer the RR Trent 895, and on the basic 777-300 I would take the P&W 4098.

I would want mine as a glider. This way I would not have to maintain any engines, and spend a cent on fuel.

Here is a picture of my 757 glider:

It's all about the Pratts

from www.pratt-whitney.com-
The 112-inch-fan PW4000 is an ultra-high-thrust model covering the 74,000 to 98,000-pound-thrust class to meet the current requirements for the Boeing 777 twinjet.

The PW4000 has been selected to power more Boeing 777 aircraft than either of its competitors. It was the launch engine for the 777, entering service in 1995.

The PW4084, with 84,000 pounds of thrust, was the first engine to enter service already approved for 180-minute ETOPS. A higher-thrust model, the PW4090, with 90,000 pounds of thrust, powers an increased-gross-weight version of the 777. And the 98,000-pound-thrust PW4098 - the most powerful commercial engine in the world - powers the 777-300, a stretched version that is the longest commercial aircraft.

The 112-inch PW4000 also is our largest commercial engine, its diameter nearly as wide as the fuselage of a Boeing 737. Using hollow titanium, shroudless fan blades, the PW4000 provides high efficiency and low noise along with superb resistance to foreign object damage.

Besides being the market-experience leader, the model has more experience than competing engines -- more than three years of ETOPS service with excellent reliability.

Program Milestones

October 1990 - Program launch
May 1993 - 100,000 pounds thrust achieved (industry first)
November 1993 - First flight
April 1994 - FAA engine certification
May 1995 - 180-minute ETOPS approval
June 1995 - Entry into service
March 1997 - PW4090 service entry
August 1999 - PW4098 service entry
