PW800 series engines achieve Canadian certification

Pratt & Whitney Canada (P&WC) has received Transport Canada type certification for its PurePower 800 series engines following rigorous tests.

The PW814GA and PW815GA engines will power the new clean sheet Gulfstream G500 and G600 business jet designs launched last October.

During rigorous endurance testing, simulating various aircraft missions, the PW800 engine has achieved more than 3,300 hours of evaluation. This includes over 350 flight hours on P&WC's advanced Boeing 747SP flying test bed aircraft.

Additionally, the PurePower PW800 engine's advanced common core technology – leveraged in six PurePower engine applications – has amassed 15,000 testing hours in total.

The two PurePower PW800 engines in the 10,000 to 20,000 pounds thrust class will power these next-generation long-range aircraft G600 and G500, which has 6200 miles and 5000 miles range respectively.
P&WC is also providing Gulfstream with the Integrated Power Plant System (IPPS), which comprises the engine, nacelle, and thrust reverser systems.
