UTC Aerospace Systems technology supports new Gulfstream business jet

UTC Aerospace Systems provides technology that supports Gulfstream's new G500/G600 business jet models. Gulfstream announced the clean-sheet aircraft before a crowd of approximately 3,000 people today at a ceremony in Savannah, Georgia. UTC Aerospace Systems is a unit of United Technologies Corp. (NYSE: UTX).

The two new aircraft optimize speed, wide-cabin comfort and efficiency to offer customers best-in-class performance with advanced safety features. The G500 and G600 can fly at a high-speed cruise of Mach 0.90, saving operators up to an hour per flight versus flying at Mach 0.80.

"UTC Aerospace Systems is delighted to be selected to supply key equipment on the G500/G600 business jets," said Gail Baker, vice president for Aerospace Customers and Business Development at UTC Aerospace Systems. "We are proud that Gulfstream has placed its trust in us and we are absolutely focused on meeting our commitments on the program."

UTC Aerospace Systems will provide critical systems for the new business jets including the electric generation system and emergency power, nose and main landing gear, observer seats, fire and smoke detection, ice detection, air data system and potable water systems.

The G500 and G600 are powered by versions of the new Pratt & Whitney Canada PurePower® PW800 engine series. The PurePower PW800 engine delivers excellent fuel efficiency, fewer emissions and engine noise, and has a 10,000-hour time between overhaul with no midlife inspection for lower operating cost. UTC Aerospace Systems provides the complete control and accessories package, including the fuel metering unit, electronic engine control, fire detection, thermal management components, sensor suite, and electrical/ignition system for the PurePower PW800 engine.

"We're proud to have UTC Aerospace Systems be part of the G500 and G600 aircraft programs," said Dan Nale, senior vice president, Programs, Engineering and Test, Gulfstream. "The key systems UTAS is providing contribute to the optimized performance of these aircraft, which represent a new era in business aviation."

UTC Aerospace Systems designs, manufactures and services integrated systems and components for the aerospace and defense industries. UTC Aerospace Systems supports a global customer base with significant worldwide manufacturing and customer service facilities.
