Geared Turbofan™

Geared Turbofan™

Through its workshare in the Pratt & Whitney Geared Turbofan™ (GTF) Engine Family, MTU is helping determine the course of aviation in today’s world.  The GTF represents a major leap forward in jet engine technology: based on a new engine architecture, the GTF reduces fuel consumption and CO2 emissions by 16 percent each and decreases the noise footprint by 75 percent.

The GTF engine features a reduction gearbox between the fan and the low-pressure shaft on which the low-pressure compressor and low-pressure turbine that drives the fan are seated. It lets all components achieve their optimum speeds.
