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)
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
