P&WC Engine For Falcon 7X Wins Approval
Pratt & Whitney Canada's new PW307A engine has received type certification from the European Aviation Safety Agency to power the Dassault Falcon 7X business jet. This achievement marks the final step in the PW307A certification process, P&WC said this week. "This is great news and a major milestone for Pratt & Whitney Canada and the Falcon 7X," said Michael Perodeau, P&WC spokesman. "The Falcon 7X is the first three-engine and longest-range business jet we have ever powered, and we are very pleased with the success of the program." P&WC is responsible for the Falcon 7X integrated powerplant system, which includes three PW307A engines and their nacelle systems. The 6,400-lb-thrust PW307A engine is designed to deliver a high thrust-to-weight ratio, low ownership costs, competitive fuel consumption and excellent reliability, the company said in a news release.
