Pratt & Whitney Canada’s new PW307D engine received type validation from the European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA). The company’s latest generation turbofan engine was first introduced two years ago at the European Business Aviation Convention and Exhibition (EBACE). Validation from the European authorities completes the key engine certification and validation activities for the PW307D program, following approval from Transport Canada and the Federal Aviation Administration last year. The engine will power Dassault Aviation’s new Falcon 8X, a three-engine ultra-long-range business jet which completed its first flight in February 2015 and is expected to be certified this summer.
