V2500

The International Aero Engines V2500 turbofan engine family consists of several models that cover the 22,000 to 33,000 pound thrust range as well as provding efficient and clean power for many customers worldwide. Its advanced technology makes it a favoured engine for many Airbus A320 family models. The V2500 delivers unequaled efficiency and reliability through its technologically advanced design.

The engine's wide-chord, shroudless fan blade design not only increases fuel efficiency , but also provides superior tolerance to foreign object damage (FOD), lowering maintenance costs significantly. Furthermore, the high-pressure compressor is a rugged 10-stage design with advanced airfoil aerodynamics, which results in higher component performance. A two-stage high-pressure turbine provides excellent efficiency and long component lift, while the Full Authority Digital Engine Control (FADEC) enhances engine operability and maintenance diagnostics.

The V2500's technological advantages provides operators with significant performance and economic benefits, including high fuel efficiency. In addition, the engine also provides ease of maintenance, including comprehensive engine monitoring, fully electronic aircraft-to-engine interface, and cockpit-based maintenance.
