Airbus Military and Pratt & Whitney Canada Mark delivery of 250th PW127G engine
At a special ceremony in Montreal, Airbus Military and Pratt and Whitney Canada marked the delivery of the 250th PW127G engine to Airbus Military. Hosted by Pratt & Whitney Canada's President John Saabas, the ceremony took place at Pratt and Whitney Canada's Longueuil plant, and was followed by a tour for executives from Airbus Military.
The PW127G is used to power Airbus military's C295, the market leader in military Search and rescue (SAR), maritime patrol, and medium transport. The C295 is a candidate for Canada's ongoing fixed-wing search and rescue (FWSAR) aircraft programme.
"Airbus Military is very proud to celebrate this important milestone in our partnership with Pratt and Whitney Canada," said Antonio R. Barberan, Senior Vice President for Airbus Military. “Every single C295 that has been sold has engines that were assembled here in Quebec. This investment ensures highly skilled jobs in Canada, but also brings the product of Canadian skills and expertise to the rest of the world.”
