Pratt & Whitney Canada receives two prestigious supplier awards from Embraer

The quality of Pratt & Whitney Canada’s (P&WC) performance and customer support has been recognized with two 2016 Supplier of the Year Awards from Embraer. The Brazilian aircraft manufacturer announced P&WC as the recipient of Best Mechanical System Supplier in Terms of Industrial Performance and Supplier with the Best Technical Support awards. P&WC is a subsidiary of United Technologies Corp.

The Best Mechanical System Supplier in Terms of Industrial Performance award recognizes P&WC’s excellence in all areas relating to support for production deliveries, such as quality and on-time delivery. The Supplier with the Best Technical Support award, meanwhile, was given to P&WC for its overall efforts in supporting the Phenom 100 and Phenom 300 fleets, which are powered by PW617F-E and PW535E engines, respectively. Embraer’s annual Supplier of the Year Awards are intended to reward suppliers’ achievements in improving the quality and efficiency of the products and services they provide to Embraer and in supporting operators of its aircraft.

“These two awards recognize the dedicated efforts of many P&WC employees from across the organization. It is a proud moment for everyone who supports the Embraer Phenom 100 and 300 programs,” said Michael Perodeau, Vice President, Marketing, responsible for Business Aviation. “The awards are a testament to our ongoing commitment to delivering industry-leading service and support to all our clients around the world, including Embraer – a key customer with whom we’ve enjoyed a rewarding relationship with for almost 50 years now.”

Part of the PW600 turbofan engine family, the PW617F-E, recently certified, has helped to create a new era of business aviation. It incorporates the latest advanced technologies to deliver an engine that is compact, fuel efficient, clean and very cost effective for the new generation of entry-level jets, such as the Phenom 100. To date, P&WC has delivered 723 PW617F-E engines to Embraer.

The PW535E is the engine of choice for light to mid-size business jets in the fractional jet ownership segment, combining outstanding performance with excellent operating economics. Like the PW617F-E, it is equipped with dual-channel full-authority digital engine control (FADEC), which results in reduced pilot workload and engine monitoring with longer time on wing. Some 790 PW535E engines been delivered for the Phenom 300.
