The PW100TS turboshaft engine family has evolved as the natural extension of our leading airline turboprop engine family. With a range of 2,000 to over 3,000 shaft horsepower, the PW100TS will deliver outstanding reliability, durability and operating economics thoroughly demonstrated in the demanding airline industry. The PW100TS leverages 100 million flying hours of experience from the airline world and a diverse range of additional applications spanning coastal surveillance, fire fighting, cargo transport.
Operators of PW100TS and PW100 engines are supported by P&WC's industry-leading global customer support. This includes over 30 P&WC-owned and designated service facilities around the world, more than 100 field support representatives on all major continents, a 24/7 Customer First Centre for rapid expert support, the most advanced diagnostic capabilities for this market and the largest pool of P&WC rental and exchange engines in the industry.
PW100TS engine family is a direct derivative from the PW100 turboprop engine, incorporating the latest advanced technologies in the drive to exceed our customer's expectations in performance, reliability, durability, fuel consumption and environmental friendliness. The PW100TS will leverage the widely acclaimed low fuel consumption and environmental friendliness of the PW100 turboprop engine. The PW100 is a three-shaft, two-spool engine. Low pressure and high pressure compressors are powered independently by cooled turbine stages. A third shaft couples the power turbine to the helicopter rotor system through a direct drive output shaft. The latest technology materials and engine control features result in a family of engines that will achieve impressive maintenance intervals, high dispatch reliability and provide the pilot and maintenance crew with easy engine operation and maintenance.
