Engine type on Used Aircraft List
« on: March 19, 2013, 12:19:11 AM »
Am I missing something?  Is it as plain as the nose on my face?

When looking at the statistics of a used aircraft, I cannot see any information about what type of engines are on the plane - like you can do when ordering new aircraft.  

For some aircraft offered with only one engine type, this is not a problem.

Granted, when I am desperate for any aircraft, I am not worried about specifics.  I also understand that currently multiple engine subtypes do not carry a penalty.  However, it is my understanding that having engines from too many manufacturers (is it 3+) does begin to carry a penalty.  

So, as my airline matures, profits hopefully increase, and choices become more possible, I like to reduce the number of airframes and engines to an acceptable number.  

Knowing what type of engines are on a potential lease can be helpful.

Am I missing the information that is right before my eyes?

If you are looking for a specific model of aircraft and a specific engine, I recommend typing in the name of the engine into the search bar at the top. Like I type jt8d-17 and select 737-200Adv.
