Engines On Same Family Aircraft

Mon May 17, 2004 6:00 am

This is about engines on the A320 and B737NG families. Do all variants have the same engine in terms of power which is derated on the smaller models? Example same engine on A320 and A319 which is derated on the A319? Does "derated" only involve paperwork and some onboard computer software or are there actual physical mechanical differences too?

There are no mechanical differences. This thread should help...

This will get you to the beginnings of the 737
