Pratt & Whitney delivers first PW1400G engine to Irkut

Pratt & Whitney has delivered the first PurePower PW1400G-JM engine to the podding facility at Russia's Irkut Corp. The engine was assembled and tested at the Pratt & Whitney West Palm Beach Engine Center in Florida. The PW1400G-JM has been optimized for installation on Irkut's new MC-21 airliner.

"The PW1400G-JM engine is proof of the Geared Turbofan (GTF) engine technology's key strengths - its adaptability and versatility - and we are excited to provide the first PurePower engine for Irkut as the engine family continues to display unprecedented levels of performance across the board," said Jill Albertelli, P&W vice president of NGPF-30K programs. "We were able to conform this engine to meet our customer's needs and expectations to provide numerous operational benefits. The dynamic engine coupled with Irkut's MC-21 aircraft will offer airline customers dramatic reductions in fuel burn, emissions, and noise compared to today's in-service aircraft."

Certification of the PW1400G-JM engine is scheduled for later this year. The PurePower engine family has completed more than 36,000 cycles of testing and 20,000 hours of testing.
