With Mitsubishi, Bombardier, Airbus and Irkut already having chosen the GTF, this would be the 5th manufacturer to choose the PW PurePower engine, and the second, along with the A320neo, to use it as a re-engining program. The GTF will replace the CF-34-10 from General Electric currently used on the E-Jets.  This is another major win for Pratt & Whitney and its new technology engine that promises a 15% reduction in and a 15db, reduction in noise compared to today’s engines.
