Pratt & Whitney Canada’s (P&WC’s) growing helicopter-engine business marked several major milestones in 2013 including reaching 50 million turboshaft flying hours and is gearing up for another busy year. In 2013, the PW210S engine, selected for Sikorsky’s S-76D helicopter, received EASA validation in July, and the PT6T-9 engine entered service on the Bell 412EPI in December.
P&WC is preparing to mark a number of additional milestones this year, including certification of the PW210A for the AgustaWestland AW169 helicopter, the 30th anniversary of the PT6B-36 and the entry into service of the PT6C-67E powering the Airbus Helicopter EC175. As with just about every segment P&WC serves, a constant dialogue with both helicopter OEMs and operators is key to augmenting the company’s formal market research into how the segment will develop in the future. To a large extent, our engines helped build the medium-twin helicopter segment, as P&WC has worked closely over the years with some dynamic and innovative helicopter OEMs.
“Given our traditional strength in the segment, augmented by our success in leveraging our existing models with new derivatives that boast better fuel consumption and better hot and high performance, we believe the future is very bright,” says Richard Dussault, Vice President, Marketing, P&WC.
