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.

TURKEY’S TRJet SELECTS P&WC FOR REGIONAL FLIGHTS

P&WC will provide PW100 derivative engines for the TRP328TM turboprop aircraft operated by TRJet, an aviation company based in Ankara, Turkey. TRJet has asked P&WC to develop a derivative of its PW127 engine to provide heightened performance over the PW119 engine that powered the original 328 aircraft which entered into service in 1993.

TRJet has asked P&WC to develop a derivative of its PW127 engine to provide heightened performance over the PW119 engine that powered the original 328 aircraft which entered into service in 1993.

TRJet is a subsidiary of Sierra Nevada Corporation (SNC) which has carved a reputation in the industry for innovative and effective aviation solutions. The PW100 turboprop engine is the proven airline benchmark for low fuel consumption on the shorter routes of 350 miles or less. PW100 powered airline turboprops consume 25 to 40 per cent less fuel and produce up to 50 per cent fewer CO2 emissions than similar-sized regional jets. As a result, many airlines are renewing their fleets with PW100-powered aircraft.

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.
