Founded in 1928, Pratt & Whitney Canada (P&WC), based in Longueuil, Quebec, is a global aerospace leader. Backed by a global customer service network, we power the largest fleet of business and regional aircraft and helicopters – over 50,000 engines worldwide. We employ more than 9,000 people around the world. P&WC is a subsidiary of United Technologies Corporation (UTC). In the early 1970s, P&WC entered the helicopter market with its first PT6T Twin-Pac® model, establishing a dominant presence in the medium helicopter market. Today, the PW200 engine, available on all light-twin helicopter applications, has become the uncontested market leader in the light-twin helicopter market. P&WC also launched the PW210 family of engines, offering best-in-class performance in the 1,100 shp class with unmatched reliability, durability and operating economics for large single and intermediate/medium twin helicopters such as the Sikorsky S-76D, the AgustaWestland AW169 and the Airbus Helicopters X4.
P&WC’s PT6C engine series includes the PT6C-67C for the AW139, which ensures the best power-to-weight ratio in its engine class, and has one of the lowest emission levels in the industry. Powering the EC175, the PT6C-67E introduces a dual FADEC control system. The PT6C-67A, powering the AW609 tiltrotor, incorporates technological features that provide the flexibility for the aircraft to take-off and hover while maintaining its ability to fly at altitudes, speeds and distances normally restricted to fixed wing applications. P&WC officers include John Saabas, President; Maria Della Posta, Senior Vice President, Sales & Marketing; and, Richard Dussault, Vice President, Marketing, Regional Airline and Helicopter Engines.
