Pratt & Whitney Powers Qatar's Latest Boeing C-17s

EAST HARTFORD, Conn., Feb. 5, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Pratt & Whitney, a division of United Technologies Corp. (NYSE: UTX), recently delivered eight F117-PW-100 engines to power two new Boeing C-17 Globemaster IIIs for the Qatar Emiri Air Force (QEAF). Boeing delivered the two aircraft at its facility in Long Beach, Calif. The new heavy lift transports join the QEAF's first two C-17s, which were delivered in 2009.

"We are pleased to expand our relationship with Boeing and Qatar by providing these F117 engines in support of military and humanitarian missions worldwide," said Bev Deachin, vice president, Military Program and Customer Support. "Pratt & Whitney remains committed to producing these safe, reliable and dependable engines to help nations like Qatar effectively address their evolving airlift needs and capabilities."

Pratt & Whitney's F117 engines provide exclusive power for the C-17 Globemaster III, the world's premier heavy airlifter. The F117-PW-100 is the military designation for Pratt & Whitney's PW2040 commercial engine powering the Boeing 757. With more than 60 million hours of proven military and commercial use, the F117/PW2040 has consistently proven itself as a world-class dependable engine.

As nations such as Qatar look to the future needs of their aircraft fleets, Pratt & Whitney will remain a partner in technology innovation and foresight that pushes the industry forward.  Pratt & Whitney military engines provide unmatched safety, dependability, reliability, and maturity to warfighters around the world. 

Pratt & Whitney is a world leader in the design, manufacture and service of aircraft engines, space propulsion systems and industrial gas turbines. United Technologies, based in Hartford, Conn., is a diversified company providing high technology products and services to the global aerospace and building industries.

This press release contains forward-looking statements concerning future business opportunities. Actual results may differ materially from those projected as a result of certain risks and uncertainties, including but not limited to changes in the Globemaster III funding related to the C-17 aircraft and F117 engines, changes in government procurement priorities and practices or in the number of aircraft to be built; challenges in the design, development, production and support of technologies; as well as other risks and uncertainties, including but not limited to those detailed from time to time in United Technologies Corporation's Securities and Exchange Commission filings.
