Has the GTF engine powered your flight?
We're here to help you find out
Engines manufactured by Pratt & Whitney have been soaring the skies for nearly a century. With so many flying, it can be hard to tell just what engine is powering your aircraft.
Our spotters' guide provides key visual cues of how to tell if a GTF engine is powering your flight.
Take a look at (or through) our fan blades
With such a large fan diameter, they can be hard to miss. Our fan blades bring you the highest bypass ratio in commercial aviation and are built from high strength aluminum alloy, some of the most durable and lightweight in operation today.
Taking green to new heights
Housed inside the Collins Aerospace nacelle, our engine rub strips provide a key green color identifier while also playing an essential role in reducing friction and excess noise during flight.
Front and center, helping lead the way
On all GTF engines, you'll see a distinct raindrop spinner painted on the nose cone. This symbol helps the grounds crew know when the motors are spinning and in operation.
The whole package, inside and out
Housed within a Collins Aerospace nacelle, the geared engine architecture delivers higher efficiency at a lower temperature. With a core-mounted accessory gearbox, the GTF engine achieves a slimmer, completely round nacelle for lighter weight, maximum efficiency, and improved airflow.
