To be able to make your mark on the present and shape the future, you have to be ahead of your time. MTU Aero Engines has been doing precisely that for 75 years. Its predecessor, BMW Flugmotorenbau GmbH, was founded in Munich in 1934. After changes in name and ownership, the company has meanwhile evolved into Germany’s leading engine manufacturer and the world’s biggest independent commercial MRO provider – a successful, globally operating, publicly owned enterprise and an established player in the realm of engines. The name MTU stands for 100 years of aviation expertise, because with its advanced technologies it will be shaping the future of aviation well into the 21st century.
MTU and its predecessors have always played an influential role in flying. The BMW VI, RB199, PW2000 and GP7000 are outstanding examples of MTU’s engineering competence. Thanks to decades of expertise and research, the company has constantly developed propulsion technologies of the future in collaboration with its partners from industry, research and science. No sooner has one engine been launched than MTU’s engineers are already developing the engine of tomorrow. This still applies today. The Clean Air Engine (Claire) technology program will take full effect sometime around the year 2034 – thanks to 75 years of MTU history and 100 years of aviation expertise.
