Icarus International supports a variety of the airline industry’s most widely used engine types. Our expertise and growing service capacity for the GE CF6-80C2 and CF6-50 series, Pratt & Whitney’s JT9D-7 and PW4000 series, the International Aero Engines V2500, CFM International's Engines CFM56-3, CFM56-5 and CFM56-7 is structured around our vision to become the preferred component supplier for the operators of these engines.


The V2500 engine is the result of a collaborative venture of four of the world’s leading aerospace companies designed to match superb operational performance with minimized environmental impact. 

Working together as International Aero Engines, Pratt & Whitney, Rolls Royce, Japanese Aero Engines, and MTU each were responsible to develop part of the engine, which first entered service in 1989. 

Since then more than 80 customers in 35 countries operate over 2,000 V2500 engines while 2,600 engines are on the production backlog with about 1,200 of those expected to enter service within the next five years. 

Not only has it proved to be the quietest engine in service, but it also has the most efficient fuel burn rate in its class, generating up to 33,000 pounds of thrust to power the Airbus 319 and 320/321 family, and the Boeing MD-90.
