Pratt & Whitney Canada Corp. Key Developments

TRJet Selects Pratt & Whitney Canada's PW100 Family of Turboprop Engines

Pratt & Whitney Canada announced that its PW100 family of turboprop engines, designed for the regional airline industry, has been selected by TRJet to power its new TRP328™ aircraft. TRJet asked Pratt & Whitney Canada to develop a new version of its PW127 engine to provide heightened performance over the PW119 engine that powered the original 328 aircraft which entered into service in 1993. In October, 2015, P&WC announced its intention to resume production of its PW306B turbofan engine to power the TRJet turbofan aircraft. The new version of the PW127 turboprop engine will be developed and manufactured at P&WC's facility in Longueuil, Quebec, while the PW306B engine will be produced at the company's Mississauga, Ontario, facility.

Pratt &Whitney Canada Completes Phase 2 Testing of its Next Generation Regional Turboprop

Pratt &Whitney Canada has successfully completed Phase 2 testing of its Next Generation Regional Turboprop (NGRT) engine and is poised for rapid integration development. This phase has allowed P&WC to expand the design envelope ensuring the company has a fully optimized NGRT engine core all while enabling the application of this technology to existing and newer product lines. P&WC's NGRT is in proactive response to airframe OEMs foreseeing a 90-seat turboprop within the next few years. The company has developed a high pressure ratio compressor that will contribute to the powerplant's ability to deliver 20% better specific fuel consumption (SFC) and power ranging from 4,500 shp to 8,000 shp. "Today, the vast majority of 30- to 70-passenger regional turboprop aircraft operating around the world are powered by the PW100 engine. P&WC will continue developing the NGRT concept throughout the coming months to further enhance the technology and progress the performance envelope. Advancements made through the development and testing of the NGRT are being applied to other existing and future engine programs across P&WC's product range, allowing the company to continue to offer its customers the solutions they need and trust.
