International Aero Engines (IAE) has asked its partner companies to prepare for increased production of the V2500 engine from next year. IAE plans to increase the rate from 250 powerplants this year to 330 in 2005 to meet increased demand for V2500-powered Airbus A320 family aircraft. The IAE partners are the Japanese Aero Engines Corporation, MTU Aero Engines, Pratt & Whitney and Rolls-Royce.
