P&W AeroPower’s APS2600[E] APU selected for Embraer’s Second Generation E-Jet
Pratt & Whitney AeroPower’s APS2600[E] auxiliary power unit (APU) has been selected by Embraer for its second generation E-Jet. In addition to the APS2600[E] APU, Pratt & Whitney AeroPower APUs can be found on Embraer’s ERJ-145, E170/175 and E190/195 fleets. Pratt & Whitney AeroPower was also recently selected for Embraer’s KC-390 military cargo tanker for the Brazilian Air Force. The second generation Embraer E-Jets will also be equipped with Pratt & Whitney’s PurePower PW1700G and PW1900G engines, which will offer significant reductions in fuel burn, emissions, noise and operating costs compared to today’s aircraft.
