Pratt & Whitney Canada (P&WC) announced at HAI Heli-Expo 2012 that it has delivered its 1,000th PT6C-67C engine to AgustaWestland.
The PT6C-67C, the latest generation engine in the PT6C turboshaft family, powers the AgustaWestland AW139 helicopter. This family of engines was designed to support the growing medium-class helicopter market, including offshore, law enforcement, VIP transport, emergency medical services, maritime patrol, search and rescue and utility operations. Operating in the 2,000 shaft horsepower class, the engine has quickly distinguished itself for its durability, ease of pilot operation, operating economics and maintenance diagnostics.
Using the legendary PT6 engine as its base, P&WC has built a dependable and highly flexible family of turboshaft engines, designed to meet a variety of applications and power requirements for both twin- and single-engine helicopters. Innovation, dependability and sound operating economics are in the PT6’s DNA.
