World-class technology

New engine solutions must go beyond existing concepts. Commercial aircraft and  engines must become even cleaner, quieter and more fuel-efficient. Emissions-free flight is the overall goal.


Paving the way for emissions-free flight

Dr. Stefan Weber, SVP Technology & Engineering Advanced Programs, talks about the future engine technologies that MTU Aero Engines is pursuing. He details the evolutionary refinement of the geared turbofan™, its combination with revolutionary propulsion concepts, and an all-electric “flying fuel cell.” Sustainable fuels—such as power-to-liquid, sun-to-liquid and hydrogen alternatives—have a key role to play. The video was filmed for ILA Goes Digital, the website of the world’s first digital trade fair for aerospace.
