Certified! P&WC's PW617F Light Jet Turbofan

Latest In Series Will Power Embraer's Phenom 100

Pratt & Whitney Canada has received Transport Canada and FAA type certification for its new PW617F engine, selected to power the Embraer Phenom 100 very light jet (VLJ).

"This is a great milestone, and reflects our excellent teamwork with Embraer in meeting the Phenom 100 program targets," said Keyvan Fard, Senior Vice President, Sales and Marketing, P&WC. "We expect that the follow-on approvals from US and European airworthiness authorities will be granted very shortly."

The PW617F engine, chosen by Embraer in May 2005 to power the Phenom 100, provides 1,615 pounds of thrust and features a dual-channel, full-authority digital electronic control (FADEC) system.

P&WC’s new PW600 engine series incorporates the latest advanced technologies to set a new standard in customer value and environmental friendliness, offering a step change in performance, operating economics and durability with excellent fuel consumption combined with very low carbon emissions.

Members of the family have captured a significant share of the emerging VLJ market with the PW615F selected to power Cessna Aircraft’s Citation Mustang and the PW610F powering the Eclipse 500, in addition to the PW617F and Phenom 100 combination.
