"Answering tomorrow’s challenges" is more than just a trade fair motto for MTU Aero Engines. These words reflect the company’s commitment to finding solutions to tackle the challenges the aviation industry will be facing down the road. At this year’s International Paris Air Show (17 to 23 June), Germany’s engine manufacturer will present truly pioneering ideas and concepts. The company’s objectives are to make military propulsion systems even more powerful and to improve the fuel consumption and environmental compatibility of commercial engines. MTU not only wants to enhance the next generation of commercial engines, but has set its sights also on the time after 2050.
At its 300-square-meter booth No C254 in Hall 2A, MTU will showcase technological highlights from its three business segments – commercial engines, military engines and maintenance. On display are the EJ200 engine powering the Eurofighter TYPHOON and GE Aviation’s T408 engine for the Sikorsky CH53-K heavy-lift helicopter. Joining forces with its partner Safran Aircraft Engines, MTU will take on a leading role in the development of a new engine for a future European fighter aircraft. In an interactive exhibit, Germany’s leading engine manufacturer demonstrates just how important a Next European Fighter Engine (NEFE) will be for achieving the performance levels and capabilities expected of the next generation of fighter aircraft.
