PW1500G Engine Receives EASA Certification


Pratt & Whitney’s PurePower® Geared Turbofan™ PW1500G engine received certification from the European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA) on May 18.

The PW1500G powers the Bombardier C Series aircraft family. The EASA certification covers the PW1519G, PW1520G, PW1524G and PW1525G engine thrust variants. The engines were certified by Transport Canada in February 2013 and are assembled at Pratt & Whitney Canada’s Mirabel Aerospace Centre in Mirabel, Quebec. UTC Aerospace Systems provides the nacelle system.

„The EASA validation of the PW1500G type certificate is a key program milestone enabling Pratt & Whitney to deliver engines for our EIS customer Swiss Airlines,” said Graham Webb, vice president, Commercial Engines 17/24K programs.

The PW1500G engine will enter into customer service on the CS100 on July 15 as part of the Swiss Air fleet.
