SP's MAI - - AEROSPACE -

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.”
