The most widely used aero engine?

Sat Apr 04, 2020 12:26 pm

What's the aero engine (jet, turboprop, piston) that's being used on the most types of aircraft?

I'll imagine the CFM56 or JT3 will be the most widely used jet, and PT6 for turboprop.

How about the engine of the best-selling aircraft, Cessna 172? Piston engine Lycoming O-360 is also used in many other aircraft.
