ANTONOV AN-132D AIRCRAFT MAKES FIRST FIGHT UNDER PW150A POWER

Ukraine-based Antonov took to the skies on March 31 with the maiden flight of its AN-132D aircraft, powered by twin PW150A engines from Pratt & Whitney Canada.

Ukraine-based Antonov took to the skies on March 31 with the maiden flight of its AN-132D aircraft, powered by twin PW150A engines from Pratt & Whitney Canada.

Last year, Antonov announced it had signed an MOU with P&WC for the PW150A engine for the AN-132 program. The speed and efficiency with which the program has evolved is a testament to the close working relationship between Antonov and P&WC.

“It was with tremendous pride that we powered the maiden flight of the AN-132D and P&WC remains enthusiastic over the potential of the program, says Frédéric Lefebvre, Vice President, Marketing, responsible for Regional Airlines at P&WC. “The PW150A engine delivers unequalled value to multi-purpose aircraft such as the AN-132, offering fuel efficiency, environmental performance and low-cost maintenance.” 

The AN-132 aircraft represents a new generation of light, multi-purpose aircraft and is intended for short- and medium-haul routes. The aircraft is expected to see varied use from troop transport to cargo hauling and can be outfitted with a number of cabin configurations.

The PW100/150 engine family has a power range that extends from 1,800 shp to 5,000 shp. Since its introduction in 1984, it has been developed into 38 different models offering unsurpassed flexibility and capability for a variety of applications. The engines are used by some 500 operators in more than 130 countries. The fleet has flown more than 175 million hours, representing a competitive advantage for both P&WC and its operators.

The engine is the benchmark for regional aviation in terms of both performance and operating economics.

P&WC ENGINES TO POWER CANADA’S NEW SEARCH AND RESCUE AIRCRAFT

The Canadian Government has announced the selection of C295W aircraft – powered by P&WC’s PW127G engines – for its new Fixed Wing Search and Rescue (FWSAR) program. The C295Ws are made by Airbus Defence and Space and P&WC recently delivered its 400th PW127G engine to Airbus for the program.

The Canadian Government has announced the selection of C295W aircraft – powered by P&WC’s PW127G engines – for its new Fixed Wing Search and Rescue (FWSAR) program. The C295Ws are made by Airbus Defence and Space and P&WC recently delivered its 400th PW127G engine to Airbus for the program.

It’s an important win for the company but also a strategic win for the country’s aerospace industry. The Government’s decision sends a strong signal of support for an aircraft that’s powered by Canadian technology. It represents a significant investment in local talent and Canada’s economy that will help the national aviation industry remain competitive. FWSAR carries out life-saving missions across the country and the new C295W aircraft will carry the P&WC brand of dependability.

“We continue to innovate because of companies like Airbus and other local and national customers and suppliers whose support has helped make the PW100 engine family the most trusted turboprop in the world.”

PW100 engines operate around the world, performing a variety of missions in diverse climates and flying conditions. The PW127G’s unmatched fuel efficiency, comprehensive warranty covering the entire engine lifecycle and ease of maintenance will provide the Canadian Government with value for money in the long term.

There are more than 38 different PW100 engine models with 8,700 engines delivered to date. It is the benchmark engine for regional aviation in terms of both performance and operating economics.

And now we’re taking the next big step…

Our P&WC PW100 family of engines have fueled the growth of regional aviation for over three decades. But this is just the beginning.

P&WC’s NGRT (Next Generation Regional Turboprop) engine is ready for entry into service. The NGRT is a totally new centerline engine that will deliver more than 20% improvement in fuel efficiency over today's fleet – and a double-digit reduction in maintenance costs. It features a revolutionary new compressor and a state-of-the-art propeller and nacelle, among its many cutting-edge technologies, materials and manufacturing processes.

The NGRT is highly scalable, allowing P&WC to create a new family of engines to cover the 4,500 shp to 8,000 shp envelope, making it ideal for the 90-seat aircraft range – a segment poised for strong demand over the next decade and beyond.

At P&WC, our success stems from more than pure technological innovation. It’s driven by the desire to help our customers fly better, fly safer and fly more efficiently than ever before.
