CFM International, Pratt & Whitney and Rolls-Royce have homework due this week.
The trio of largest engine makers had a June 27 deadline to respond to Boeing’s formal request for proposals (RFP) to power the aircraft that will eventually become its 797, according to three people familiar with the plans.
The deadline came after multiple rounds of requests for information from each company, fleshing out what each is able to offer for Boeing’s New-Middle Market Airplane, also known as the NMA.
While Boeing hasn’t yet finalized if it will offer or launch the NMA – which it wants in service by 2025 – the company is advancing swiftly with its aircraft concept. At the highest level, the RFP is a want ad for a 45,000 pound thrust turbofan to power a pair of new small twin-aisle aircraft.
