The Airbus A380 sets a benchmark for low fuel burn and low noise. The world’s largest commercial aircraft owes its high efficiency and amazing noise level to no small degree to its GP7000 engines, in which MTU Aero Engines has a stake of 22.5%. Three months ago, the 250th engine was handed over to Airbus in Toulouse for final assembly, and now Germany’s leading engine manufacturer has completed and delivered the 300th low-pressure turbine and the 300th turbine center frame. “The GP7000 has impressively demonstrated its high reliability in more than 1.5 million flight hours,” explains Michael Schreyögg, Member of the Board of Management, Programs, MTU Aero Engines. “In terms of fuel consumption and emissions, the engine consistently performs at levels much better than the specifications,” he adds.
