See How Tech Makes This Airplane Engine Quieter and Greener

Monday, August 21, 2017

Airport neighborhoods are about to get a lot quieter. That's because a new engine reduces noise by 50 percent, impacting about 500,000 fewer airport neighbors with noise from takeoff to landing.

Watch a video to see how Pratt & Whitney and its parent company United Technologies invested more than 20 years and $10 billion in technology development to create the PurePower® Geared Turbofan™ (GTF) engine, which delivers a 16 percent improvement in fuel efficiency, reduces NOx emissions by 50 percent to the regulatory limit as well as the 75 percent reduction in noise footprint.

To learn more about the Geared Turbofan engine and how Pratt & Whitney and United Technologies smart and innovative design created a new jet engine that takes sustainable aviation to new heights visit http://naturalleader.com/ or www.purepowerengines.com.

Air traffic continues to rise, the Geared Turbofan engine will help airlines sustainably manage this growth with technologies that are changing the world and helping Pratt & Whitney "Go Beyond."
