Engines to come

Engines to come

Tomorrow’s engines need innovative ideas that are born today. The growing mobility needs of billions of people, limited raw materials and acerbating ecological problems leave little doubt that new engine solutions must go beyond existing concepts.

The framework for future aircraft engines has been clearly outlined: With its ACARE 2020 project, the European aerospace industry has set specific goals for itself, and with its longer-term Claire (Clean Air Engine) technology agenda, MTU provides a tool to implement them.

The MTU pilot concepts outline the engines of tomorrow. The gas turbine remains an essential element of propulsion and provides ample development potential to sustain tomorrow’s engines.
