Pratt & Whitney PurePower® Geared Turbofan™: Innovation Driving Economic Growth

PW WPB Eng Center PW1100G JM Prod

The Pratt & Whitney PurePower ®  Geared Turbofan   engine brings the best of aviation research and development to the world: reductions in carbon dioxide emissions fuel consumption and noise, and the capability to meet the demands of the world's rapidly growing air travel. 

But, as Forbes reports, the engine also provides significant benefits to Americans on the ground — namely, thousands of new hires over the past 18 months at plants in several states. In fact, the success of high-performance turbofan engines is estimated to fuel as many as 25,000 new Pratt & Whitney jobs over the next eight years. 

The Geared Turbofan took two decades and $10 billion — and its benefits have already begun to take off. You can learn more about the engine and more details on its economic impact at Forbes.
