Posted 28 February 2018 · Add Comment

Pratt & Whitney Canada have announced that a new variant of its ground-breaking PurePower PW800 turbofan engine has been selected to power the new Dassault Falcon 6X business jet, unveiled by Dassault Aviation earlier today.

The PW812D engine, thrust 13,000-14,000 lbs, is set to offer exceptional performance, unparalleled reliability and sustainability. Ready to enter service on other aircraft, the PurePower PW800 engine is optimized for high-flying, fast, long-range business jets and shares the same proven, rigorously-tested core technology used in Pratt & Whitney's award-winning PurePower family of geared turbofan commercial engines. The advanced common core technology, employed in 16 different PurePower engine applications, has amassed more than 585,000 in-service hours.

“With the new Falcon 6X, our PurePower PW800 engine once again demonstrates its leadership in the long range business jet category,” said Irene Makris, Vice-President, Marketing, Pratt & Whitney Canada. “The PW812D offers the highest level of technology available, paired with the reliability provided by an award-winning platform."
