Pratt & Whitney Canada, a business unit of Pratt & Whitney, has launched its new regional turboprop PW127XT engine series, designed with the latest materials and technologies to deliver the next level of efficiency, time-on-wing and service. The company celebrated the launch with ATR, with the PW127XT-M engine that is purpose-built to offer world-class reliability and increased value for ATR 42/72 aircraft.
“Since its inception, ATR has exclusively turned to Pratt & Whitney to power its fleet of regional aircraft,” said Maria Della Posta, President of Pratt & Whitney Canada. “We are pleased to launch this exciting new PW127XT-M engine with ATR. Optimised for the ATR 42/72 aircraft family, it will deliver a significant improvement in operating costs, extending the already impressive operating economics and sustainability of this regional turboprop.”
“The PW127XT engine series builds upon the success of the PW127M engine. We have injected into this new PW127XT-M engine the knowledge gained from Pratt & Whitney’s history of transformation and continuous innovation and more than 2.5 billion hours of operational expertise to provide a step change in performance and customer service that helps regional airline customers achieve their business goals,” said Della Posta.
