IAE announces SelectTwo programme

International Aero Engines (IAE) has announced the launch of its next generation V2500 engine – the V2500 SelectTwo.

An upgrade option for the V2500 SelectOne, SelectTwo is projected to provide 0.58% fuel burn savings compared to the V2500 SelectOne engine for a 500 nautical mile A320 mission. SelectTwo is comprised of a software upgrade for the electronic engine control (EEC) as well as a new data entry plug (DEP).

“SelectTwo is the latest example of how IAE effectively strives for new methodologies that enhance value to our customers,” remarked Ian Aitken, IAE president & CEO. “We are fully committed to providing substantial support and continued investment in the V2500.”

For a 10 aircraft Airbus A320 fleet flying 2,300 flights per year, this upgrade, according to IAE, equates to savings of $4.3 million over 10 years at current fuel prices, and 14,800 tons of CO2. Additionally, V2500 SelectTwo remains compliant with the most stringent CAEP/6 NOx standards.

SelectTwo is available immediately as a sales order option for V2500-A5 SelectOne engines. Entry into service is planned for 2013 after a validation testing and certification programme. IAE is working with Airbus on a flight test that is to be completed this year.
