Pratt & Whitney Canada delivers first FWSAR engines

20th November 2018 - 12:30 GMT | by The Shephard News Team


Pratt & Whitney Canada has started the delivery of PW127G engines to Airbus Defence and Space in support of the Royal Canadian Air Force’s Fixed-Wing Search and Rescue (FWSAR) aircraft replacement programme.

The engines will be installed on specially configured Airbus C295 aircraft, designated as CC-295 in Canada. The Canadian Department of National Defence is scheduled to receive the first of 16 CC-295 aircraft by the end of 2019. 

Canada has a search area of 18 million square kilometres and the PW127G engine installed CC-295 aircraft will provide the required range and endurance for time-critical missions.

Simon Jacques, president of Airbus Defence and Space Canada, said: ‘We're looking forward to delivering the first CC-295 to the Canadian government. Canada has selected an efficient and versatile aircraft, thanks in large part to the aircraft's Pratt & Whitney Canada engines.’
