Pratt & Whitney Canada (P&WC) has announced that it has received Transport Canada type certification for its PurePower PW814GA and PW815GA engines, which will power the new Gulfstream G500 (range of 5,000 nautical miles) and G600 (range of 6,200 nautical miles) business jets respectively.
Certification of these two engine models follows Gulfstream’s recent unveiling of its new G500 and G600 business jets and the news that P&WC’s PurePower PW800 engines were selected to power these next-generation long-range and ultra-long-range aircraft. In addition to the engines themselves, P&WC is providing Gulfstream with the Integrated Power Plant System (IPPS), which comprises the engine, nacelle and thrust reverser systems.
Transport Canada type certification of the PurePower PW814GA and PW815GA engines, as well as Gulfstream’s selection of the PurePower PW800 family, represent major achievements for P&WC, said John Saabas, president, P&WC. “We are very proud to power Gulfstream’s new business jet family.
