Pratt & Whitney Canada certifies PW207D1 and PW207D2 engines to power Bell Helicopter 429

Pratt & Whitney Canada (P&WC) has received Transport Canada type certification for its new PW207D1 and PW207D2 engines selected to power the Bell Helicopter 429. Pratt & Whitney Canada is a United Technologies (NYSE:UTX) company.

New additions to the PW200 family, the PW207D1 and PW207D2 engines are marketed by P&WC Turbo Engines Corp. (P&WCTEC), a subsidiary of P&WC.

"We are very proud to be leveraging the extraordinary experience of our PW200 engine family with the latest proven technology to offer Bell Helicopter unprecedented levels of reliability and economy in these new engine models," says Keyvan Fard, Senior Vice President - Sales and Marketing of P&WC and member of the P&WCTEC board of directors.

Today, more than 800 PW200-powered helicopters are in operation in 56 countries, having accumulated over 2.8 million hours of operating time. Key operating segments include law enforcement, emergency medical services and corporate markets.

The PW200 family of engines is a leader in light twin engine sales and is the industry's benchmark for dependability, dispatch reliability, operating economics and easy maintenance.

P&WC's family of helicopter engines in the 500 - 2,000 shaft horsepower class has lifted the company to a leading position in the industry. P&WC helicopter engines are backed by a world-wide Customer Service organization ranked first in the industry for nine years in a row, according to Professional Pilot Magazine's 2008 Powerplant Product Support Survey.
