The engine blades are made of composite materials so that it can work in much higher temperature. It is used in one of the biggest aircraft, Boeing 777 and has a world record thrust rating between 330 to 513 KN (high thrust variants). It powered three 777 variants-200LR, -300ER and -200F.
The Trent 900 is a series of turbofan engines and one of the family members of Trent engines. It was first used in 2004 and has four variants which are used in different airliners. It is equipped with 116 inch wide low pressure compressor fan and the total weight is over 6200 kg. It has one of the most powerful engines with the maximum thrust value of 374 KN. It is the first engine in his family which fitted with the advanced engine health monitoring system.
The Engine Alliance GP7000 is a turbofan jet engine which currently powers the world’s largest passenger airliner, the Airbus A380. It was first launched in April 2004 and the result of a collaboration between General Electric and Pratt & Whitney, two of the three biggest aircraft engine manufacturers in the world. It should have been called Super Engine Alliance, imo.
The CFM56-7 is the latest edition of CFM56 series engines, manufactured by CFM International, which debuted in 1995. With a maximum takeoff thrust (newer model) of 27,300 ibf, it’s the perfect engine to power the next generation Boeing 737 with better fuel efficiency and reduced maintenance costs. Other major applications of this engine are in Boeing KC-135 Stratotanker and Airbus A320 family.
The Rolls Royce Trent XWB is a family of turbofan jet engines which is used for the Airbus A350 XWB. It was first successfully tested in 2010 and developed as a competitor to the Boeing 787 Dreamliner. It has five variants and the largest fan diameter is 118 inches. The advanced version has the maximum thrust of 430 KN. Rolls Royce uses these engines in the Qatar Airways and Airbus A350-1000.
The General Electric CF-6 is one of the most powerful series of high bypass turbofan engines produced by General Electric aviation. Currently, it is being used in many commercial airliners, including Airbus (A300, A310, A330), Boeing (747, 767) and McDonnell Douglas. The engine is equipped with two high pressure and four low-pressure turbines with the maximum thrust value of 274 KN. Moreover, it’s 4.65 meters in length and weighs more than 4100 kg.
