International Aero Engines is a group of four aero-engine
manufacturers, formed in 1983 to produce the engine. The
companies and their responsibilities are:
Pratt & Whitney - Combustor and high pressure turbine
Rolls-Royce - high pressure compressor
Japanese Aero Engines Corporation - Fan and low pressure
MTU Aero Engines - Low pressure turbine
FAA flight certification for the V2500 was granted in 1988.
The V2500 incorporates technologies developed by the partner
company engines such as the Rolls-Royce RB211's hollow
wide-chord fan blades and the Pratt & Whitney PW4000's "floatwall"
combustor. Technology for the 10 stage high pressure
compressor was derived from the Rolls-Royce RC34B research
compressor programme, started in the 1960s.
The partners in the Japanese Aero Engines Corporation
originally collaborated with Rolls-Royce in the late 1970s
to develop the 20,000 lbf (89 kN) thrust RJ500 for
commercial aviation's most successful platform, the Boeing
737-300, but the RJ500 programme was cancelled in the early
80's, after two engines had been rig tested.
In 1982, attention was focused on developing an engine in
the 25,000 lbf (111 kN) thrust class for the 150 seater
market. The engine was initially called the RJ500-35, but
when Pratt & Whitney, MTU and FIAT joined the consortium
some time afterwards the engine was renamed the V2500. V
denotes the five original partners, whilst 2500 symbolizes
the original thrust level of 25,000 lbf (111 kN). FIAT later
withdrew from the consortium.
The V2500 is a more advanced engine than the RJ500. The fan
is slightly larger in diameter. An additional zero-stage and
3 booster stages behind the fan raise the overall pressure
ratio. Because of the higher bypass ratio, there are two
extra LP turbine stages, making five in all.
More than 1,300 V2500 powered aircraft (July 2006 - IAE
figures) have been delivered, accumulating more than 40
million flight hours. IAE's 135 customers include regional
and large international carriers. In 2003 IAE's market share
for the A320 soared to 83%, IAE has won a 56% market share
since 1998 on this family. For comparison, the CFM56-5
series engines power approximately 1,600 A320 family
aircraft (Oct 2006) currently in revenue service with 130
operators, and have accumulated 50 million flight hours and
30 million cycles. The Airbus designator for any aircraft
equipped with IAE engines is "3"; eg. A319-132 or A321-231.
