Pratt & Whitney Engine for Embraer E-Jets E2 Begins Testing

Pratt & Whitney, a unit of United Technologies CorporationUTX , announced that its PW1900G PurePower Geared Turbofan engine for the Embraer S.A. ERJ E190-E2 and E195-E2 aircraft successfully completed its first flight.

The PW1900G engine model initiated its flight test program on Pratt & Whitney's 747SP flying test bed in Mirabel, Quebec, Canada. The PurePower engine family has undergone over 23,000 hours of testing and 40,000 cycles.

Pratt & Whitney's industry-leading Geared Turbofan engine will enable considerable reductions in noise, emissions and fuel burn for Embraer's E-Jets E2 program. The initiation of engine flight testing represents an important step in making the concept of second generation E-Jets a reality.

In addition to the E-Jet E2 program, Pratt & Whitney and Embraer are also working together, with the former supplying the auxiliary power unit for the E-Jet E2 program. Also, Pratt & Whitney is part of the collaboration, which supplies the V2500-E5 engine for the Embraer KC-390.

Pratt & Whitney has over 90 years of experience and provides aircraft operators with highly technical expertise and services.

Separately, another unit of United Technologies, Otis, was recently re-awarded the contract to deliver maintenance services for all 110 Otis escalators at Beijing South Railway Station.
