CHARLOTTE, N.C., March 6, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --UTC Aerospace Systems has been
chosen by Pratt & Whitney as the exclusive nacelle provider for both engine
models for Embraer's new Second Generation E-Jet aircraft. The nacelle systems
will be provided by the Aerostructures business unit headquartered in Chula
Vista, Calif. The Embraer Second Generation E-Jets will be equipped with Pratt
& Whitney's PurePower® Geared Turbofan™ PW1700G and PW1900G engines.

Designed and manufactured to leverage the latest in composite technology, the
nacelle systems will directly contribute to the significant reductions in fuel
burn, emissions, noise and operating costs that Pratt & Whitney's PurePower
engines will provide compared to today's aircraft. The PurePower engine uses
an advanced gear system and an all-new advanced core that delivers
double-digit improvements in fuel efficiency and environmental emissions, as
well as a 50 percent reduction in noise.

"The nacelles for the Embraer Second Generation E-Jets feature a 360-degree
acoustically smooth inlet that we developed, which is a major contributor to
reductions in engine noise. It has become the global standard for inlet
cowls," said Aerostructures business unit President Marc Duvall. "These
nacelle systems strike the perfect balance of weight, performance and cost,
enabling a complete and fully integrated propulsion package that will deliver
optimal value to Embraer."

The Aerostructures business currently supplies the APU tailcone for the
EMBRAER 170 and the EMBRAER 175 the APU tailcone and GE CF34-10 nacelle system
for the EMBRAER 190 and the EMBRAER 195. Based on forecasts for aircraft
orders, UTC Aerospace Systems estimates that this latest selection by Pratt &
Whitney will generate approximately $12 billion in sales over the life of the
aircraft program. The new Second Generation E-Jets are expected to enter into
service in 2018. The Aerostructures business is also providing the nacelle
system for additional applications of PurePower engines, including the
PW1100G-JM, PW1200G and PW1500G engines.
