    Hi,

    Is Variable IGV used only on fighters engines? or can we find them on civil planes?

    Thanks

    VIGV's are found on all modern transport category aircraft. All hi bypass turbo fans use variable guide vanes.

      VIGV's would be variable inlet guide vanes. Those found in front of the fan (JT8D / JT3D), or in front of the first compressor stage.

      Yes, some civilian engines are so equipped.
