The V2500 is a two-shaft high-bypass turbofan engine which powers the Airbus A320 family (A320, A321, A319 and the Airbus Corporate Jet), and the McDonnell Douglas MD-90 family.
International Aero Engines is a group of four aero-engine manufacturers, formed in 1983 to produce the engine.
V2500 variants in service are -A1 (A320), -A5 (A319/A320/A321/ACJ) and -D5 (MD-90) offering thrust levels of between 22,000 lbf and 33,000 lbf (100 to 150 kN) and are Stage 4 noise compliant.
International Aero Engines V2500 Biography on DanceAge (567 words)
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 and Whitney PW4000's "floatwall" combustor.
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.
The engine was intially called the RJ500-35, but when Pratt and Whitney, MTU and FIAT joined the consortium some time afterwards the engine was renamed the V2500.
