V2500 Aircraft-engine

Thu Nov 29, 2001 11:34 pm

On which aircraft are these engines used?

Are there any programs used to operate or install these engines?

I can't help you with the technicalities of the engine but they are/can be installed on A320/19/21/18 i beleive aircraft and also on MD-90's

The IAE V2500 is a choise on the A319/320/321 aircrafts alongside various versions of CFM56-5.

But it has not been offered (yet) on the A318 on which you can choose between low powered CFM56-5 versions and PW6000.

In addition all MD-90 have V2500 engines.

I just checked their website and it looks like only Airbus aircraft operate with the engine.

For more info on the engine go to http://www.v2500.com/iae/products/products.htm.

Hi Steven, Buzz here. I've become familiar with the v2500 engines on UAL's Airbus's (Airbussii ?)
They're not bad, a few things are really packed in tight so changing bleed air valves to work on chroinc bleed air problems is a real pain in the ---- hands. Many hard lines / sense and muscle pressure get in the way also.

And many brackets etc seem to have had a sharp burr left on them, more than normal. So i end up "giving blood" if i'm not careful.

The V2500's are more fuel efficient than our 10 year old CFM56 engines on the 737 fleet. I bet i start a flame war on that one. But to be fair, those CFM's just keep running despite burner deterioration. The CFM is a durable engine. The V2500's seem to be OK so far.

They were the ONLY engine on the MD-90-30 aircraft.

They are on several Airbus narrowbodies, including all United examples. Lufthansa also has them, but only on their A321s, not the 320s. British has them on their A319s but not 320s. Kind of strange to me. Also, JetBlue's fleet is powered by the V2500.

The 2500 is not offered on the A318, it's too powerful. The PW6000 was the ONLY engine, until AirFrance whined a whole lot. Then Airbus agree to put on some scaled down CFM's on there, which makes no sense to me at all.

That's all I know.

Randy

P.S.- I have flown both United A320s and USAirways A320s, and I like the V2500 better than the CFM found on US's. The 2500 is quieter and more distinct.

British Airways does have new A320s that are powered by V2500s, the A320s that are powered by CFM56s were inherited by the purchase of British Caledonian.

BA has no A320s powered by V2500.

The first MD-90 which was rolled out carried these engines. V2500 is a European colaboration. Alike Airbus.

Huh, V2500 is a European collaboration??

Why don't you go to www.v2500.com check the fact, come back and tell us that you have made a big mistake.

From www.v2500.com

On March 11, 1983, five of the world’s leading aerospace manufacturers signed a 30-year collaboration agreement to produce an engine for the single-aisle aircraft market with the best proven technology that each could provide. The five were Pratt & Whitney of the United States, Rolls-Royce of Great Britain, the Japanese Aero Engines Corporation (JAEC) of Japan, MTU of Germany and FiatAvio of Italy (FiatAvio later withdrew as a shareholder of the program, but still remain as a supplier). In December of the same year the collaboration was incorporated in Zurich, Switzerland, as IAE International Aero Engines AG, a management company established to direct the entire program for the shareholders.

I meant International Collaboration.

Nice job, unlike many people in this forum, you are willing to correct your mistakes.  Wink/being sarcastic

FWIW, FIAT has dropped out of IAE a few years back.
