Transport Canada Certifies P&WC’s PT6C-67E Engine For Eurocopter EC175

Engine Transitions From Development To Production

Pratt & Whitney Canada (P&WC) has received Transport Canada type certification for the PT6C-67E turboshaft engine that will power Eurocopter’s EC175 helicopter. The Eurocopter EC175 is a new multirole helicopter and the PT6C-67E is the latest turboshaft engine in the PT6C-67 family for the medium class helicopter segment. “The PT6C-67E engine is the latest in our line of PT6 turboshaft engines,” said Richard Dussault, Vice-President, Marketing, P&WC. “Having cleared the type certification milestone we can now transition from development to production as we prepare for the first delivery of the EC175.”

The PT6C-67E builds on the experience of the PT6 family of turboprop and turboshaft engines, bringing unmatched reliability to a market where dispatch, availability and safety are paramount. The PT6C-67E incorporates P&WC’s latest technological innovations for enhanced power and fuel efficiency, for longer range, increased payload and enhanced pilot experience to the EC175.

“We are always focused on delivering the engine features and service technologies that bring the best value to our customers,” said Dussault. “The PT6C-67E continues to deliver the best capability and support for our customers. We’ve incorporated the latest Full Authority Digital Engine Control (FADEC) system that reduces pilot workload and provides the most advanced diagnostic capability in the market. This means our engine is easier to fly, provides fast and accurate control and is easier to maintain, so our operators can focus on their mission.”

“Our number one priority is to deliver the most dependable engines available and we stand behind our product and beside our customers with proactive, flexible customer service and aftermarket solutions to keep them flying and eliminate downtime,” said Dussault. “With our comprehensive support capability, we are available around the clock and around the world with flexible service solutions to support any mission our customers fly.”

P&WC powered the first flight of the EC175 prototype helicopter in December 2009 and has performed flawlessly throughout the flight test program on Eurocopter’s two flight test aircraft.( EC175 Image provided by Eurocopter)
