MTU develops and manufactures the V2500 engine in cooperation with Pratt & Whitney and Japanese Aero Engines Corporation. For the launch in 1983, a joint company - International Aero Engines AG (IAE) - was established.
The IAE V2500 is a two-shaft turbofan targeted at short-to-medium-haul transports and is used on the Airbus A319, A320 and A321 as well as on the Boeing/McDonnell Douglas MD-90. It obtained FAA flight certification in 1988. MTU has an 16% stake in the IAE V2500 and is responsible for the entire low-pressure turbine. At the moment 360 of these engines are produced every year. The engine is a source of growing repair revenues for the company.
