Engine differences

Recommended Posts

Hi there,I have a short little question for you guys out there: what are the differences between the GE, PW and RR engines? TOPCAT gives only data for the GE variant. Maybe the differences are too subtle to replicate in desktop flight simulation, but still...Jan Peter van Kempen

The P&W's modeled by PMDG are the late model units, as opposed to the Launch model P&W's the fuel burn on the early P&W's were a lot worse than the GE's. However, the PMDG is modeled after McDonnell's PIP package. As a result the P&W's fuel burn is only slightly greater than the GE as a result of the greater thrust rating.
