Pratt & Whitney Delivers First PurePower® Engine For Mitsubishi Regional Jet

EAST HARTFORD, Conn., June 5, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Pratt & Whitney delivered its first PurePower PW1200G engine to Mitsubishi Aircraft Corporation. The PW1200G engines will power the single-aisle MRJ90 Mitsubishi Regional Jet (MRJ).  Pratt & Whitney is a division of United Technologies Corp. (NYSE: UTX).

"Pratt & Whitney looks forward to powering Mitsubishi's new, next-generation aircraft with PurePower Geared Turbofan™ engines. Our new engine architecture complements the various MRJ technologies that will offer customers a reduction in fuel consumption, noise and emissions," said David Brantner, president, Pratt & Whitney Commercial Engines. "We are very pleased to be a part of this exciting partnership with Mitsubishi, and we look forward to supporting the aircraft's flight test."

The PurePower PW1200G engine's fan-drive gear system is just one component of this new engine design. The PW1200G engine also incorporates advances in 3D aerodynamics, lightweight materials and other major technology improvements in the compressor, combustor, turbine and controls. The PurePower engine family has now completed more than 9,000 hours of rigorous testing, which is proving the engine's capability and reliability.

Mitsubishi Regional Jet is a family of 70~90- seat next-generation aircraft featuring Pratt & Whitney's revolutionary PurePower® engine and state-of-the-art aerodynamics to significantly reduce fuel consumption, noise, and emissions, while offering top-class operational benefits, an outstanding cabin designed for heightened passenger flying comfort, and large overhead bins.
