The new version of the Pratt & Whitney Geared Turbofan engine, the GTF Advantage, has been designed with the popular Airbus A321LR and XLR in mind. The engine maker has no plans to offer the updated version on the other aircraft models that are powered by the GTF, the A220, Embraer E2-family, or the Irkut MC-21, although it doesn’t rule out that some improvements might spill into these models. GTF Advantage made for the Airbus A321XLR.
P&W presented the Advantage during a live and virtual event at its East Hartford Customer Training Center on December 2.
