The PT6T Twin-Pac® alone created the foundation for P&WC’s success in the global helicopter market, with a heritage that is second to none. Our customers associate the “Twin-Pac®” with lasting dependability since its service entry in the 1970s. PT6T engines continue to enjoy strong sales today based on the excellent reputation and performance of the Agusta and Bell 212 and 412 helicopters and the PT6T’s excellent record of dependability together with a steady influx of advanced, value-based technologies.
The 1,800 to 2,000 shaft horsepower class, twin-power section PT6T has been produced in 12 models and its versatility has been demonstrated in a wide variety of applications. PT6T engines power aircraft in service with 360 operators in 96 countries. More than 7,000 PT6T engine power sections have been produced since the family entered service in the 1990s, accumulating more than 40 million flying hours in such applications as oil exploration, Emergency Medical Service, maritime patrol and utility operations.
