Pratt & Whitney delivers first PurePower engine for Mitsubishi Regional Jet
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). 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.
