1. CFM56-7 Series
CFM56-7 Series, with a thrust-to-weight ratio of 3.7:1, debuted in 1995. It has better fuel efficiency and reduced maintenance costs.
2. GE TF39
GE TF39, with a thrust-to-weight ratio of 5.4:1, was the first ever high-bypass turbofan jet engine produced. It also was the first turbofan that introduced 1 ½ stage fan blades with an 8:1 bypass ratio.
3. Progress D-18T
Progress D-18T, thrust-to-weight ratio of 5.7:1, is a high bypass turbofan aircraft engine originally specially designed to power heavy transport aircraft.
4. General Electric CF-6
General Electric CF-6, thrust-to-weight ratio of 5.08:1, is one of GE's most powerful series of high bypass turbofan engines. It has a max thrust of 274 kN.
5. Rolls Royce Trent 700
Rolls Royce Trent 700, thrust-to-weight ratio of 51.35 N/kg, is typically used on the Airbus A330. It is a more powerful and heavier engine with a max thrust of 316 kN.
6. General Electric GEnx
General Electric GEnx, thrust-to-weight ratio of 5.15:1, is a high-performance bypass turbofan jet engine with radical composite fan technology.
7. Rolls Royce Trent 1000
Rolls Royce Trent 1000, thrust-to-weight ratio of 6.1:1, has a max thrust of 265.3-360.4 kN.
8. Engine Alliance GP7000
Engine Alliance GP7000, thrust-to-weight ratio of 5.197:1, powers the world's largest passenger airliner, the Airbus A380.
9. Rolls Royce Trent 900
Rolls Royce Trent 900, thrust-to-weight ratio of 5.46:1, has a max thrust of 374 kN and is the first of the Trent series with an advanced engine health monitoring system.
10. Rolls Royce Trent XWB
Rolls Royce Trent XWB, thrust-to-weight ratio of 5.25:1, is used on the Airbus A350 XWB with a max thrust of 430 kN.
11. Pratt and Whitney PW4000
Pratt and Whitney PW4000, thrust-to-weight ratio of 6-7:1, is one of the most powerful of Pratt & Whitney's engines.
12. General Electric GE90
General Electric GE90, thrust-to-weight ratio of 5.59:1, is based on NASA's own high energy efficient experimental profane. It has a world record-breaking thrust between 330-513 kN.
