Not sure how you can sit in front of the engine without losing your hearing… 🤔

But to answer your question it would be the PT6A for a turboprop, and the RB211 for a jet.

What a weird question. My favorite engine type is the one that makes the more money for the airlines.

I am sure all of them make at least decent money. After all, engines are used on every aircraft!
