Are IAE V2500 engines still manufactured?

Considering the KC-390 will be using two V2500 engines, I'd say some are still being produced.

Airbus still delivers new A321 aircraft with V2500 powerplants.

Thanks Karel, what with all the talk centering around P&W or the CFM engine with their problems, one doesn't notice or talk about the V2500 anymore.

Yes.

Currently Airbus is still producing airplanes using the V2500-A5 model. Also the Embraer KC-390 will use the V2500-E5 motor. Plenty of life left in the engine.


FWIW CFM is still producing the CFM56-5B and CFM56-7B along with its new LEAP. The P-8 is currently planned to be all NGs so it will be a while before CFM moves to just LEAP motors.

Yes. Military aircraft require esoteric spares in case of battle damage.

Odd that this topic should come up when I just saw a note cross my desk the other day about the status of the IAE V2500...I think the fact that all of the partner companies are still active means that while the production of the engine may conclude, it could in theory, be built from spare parts if you really wanted to. But since the Embraer KC-390 will feature the engine and there is still a healthy backlog of IAE powered A320 family aircraft, I think we will be seeing this engine for a while yet.

While the CFM may be king, I can say that I prefer the IAE V2500....not that my opinion matters. :-)

I reckon new V2500 will still be being built in over 10 years time. Maybe with mods, but still being built, and certainly spares available.

Hello and happy new year everyone :) !

From the outset I beg my English-speaking readers to apologize for any clumsy aeronautic formulations because I am French-speaker :? !! ... I join this discussion because it seems to me that, in addition to the IAE V2500, there are more widely questions about CFM56 and Leap situations.

Beyond the A320 family that remains for the moment and for some of its aircrafts equipped with this type of engine, it seems to me that the MD90 / 95 (renamed B717) are also ... Nevertheless I wonder if they are the same formats for the reactors mounted on the sides of the tail and those mounted in pods at the edges of wing attacks?

As for the CFM56 situation, it seems to me that today remain only the -5B and -7B variants on the 737 NG and the A320 ceo . I hypothesize that the production of the CFM 56 will definitely be stopped with the complete replacement of the 737NG and A320 ceo fleets through the world ... Could it be possible however for these aircrafts to be updated with Leap engines?

I still find quite limiting for customers of the 737 MAX family the unique choice of the Leap 1B engine, even if the PW1000G GTF still seems to know some sins of youth ... Why have imposed this unique engine?

Any specific reason behind the preference apart from lower noise?

Yes, it is still being produced, but...

The last V2500 was delivered from the RR Berlin-Dahlewitz line in December 2017, after having produced more than 2,200 engines there since 2006, when production was transferred from RR Derby.

This leaves PW East Hartford, CT as the only remaining assembly line, which I guess will gradually wind down to a low-rate production.

Note that MTU in Munich is a major V2500 site for producing components and MRO - does anyone know what the plans for that site are?
