Since the first development of jet engines during World War 2, the turbofan version has been part of this remarkable history. Today, turbofan jets can be seen in the skies daily in commercial, airliner and military aircraft.
While mostly associated with commercial aircraft, the basic turbofan design is used in virtually all types of jet planes today. While the progress of technology has added many changes, the basic design of the turbofan jet engine is still the same as it was when it first took to the skies.
Turbofan jet engines were initially constructed as a response to the earlier turbojet engine which was very inefficient in terms of fuel consumption. The turbofan created more fuel efficiency which is the hallmark of the engine type. The Germans were the first to use a turbofan jet engine in the Daimler-Benz DB 670 which first flew in 1943. The British quickly followed suit with the Metrovick F.2 which was produced the same year.
Turbofan jet engines were developed over the years with their introduction to civilian jets such as airliners being ramped up in the 1960s. Today, turbofan jets are very common with many different models used in all types of aircraft. Two of the most popular are the CFM International CFM56 and the Rolls-Royce Trent 1000.
CFM International CFM56
One of the most common turbofan jet engines in the world, the CFM56 was first used in 1974 and is still being manufactured for use on a number of planes with over 20,000 being built so far. Perhaps the most popular plane using this particular engine has been the Boeing 737, although it also powers the Airbus A340 200 and 300 series as well.
