Engine

PW100/PW150

The Green Powerhouse of Regional Airline Turboprops.
1,800 to over 5,000 shaft horsepower
The PW100 turboprop engine is the proven airline benchmark for low fuel consumption on shorter routes of 350 miles or less. PW100-powered airline turboprops consume 25 to 40 per cent less fuel and produce up to 50 per cent fewer CO2 emissions than similar-sized regional jets. As a result, many airlines are renewing their fleets with PW100-powered aircraft. With a range of 1,800 to over 5,000 shaft horsepower, the PW100 has demonstrated its versatility in powering aircraft applications including airlines, coastal surveillance, fire fighting and cargo transport.

Overview

The PW100 family is the engine of choice for modern 30 to 90 passenger turboprop airliners around the world thanks to its outstanding reliability, durability and operating economics.

Lowest fuel consumption and carbon emissions

Offering the lowest fuel consumption and carbon emissions, and incorporating the latest, proven advanced technologies, PW100 engines have demonstrated they are the greenest in the airline industry for shorter routes served by the regional airlines.

Unsurpassed flexibility and capability for a variety of applications

Ranging in power from 1,800 shp to over 5,000 shp, PW100 engines are available in 38 models, offering unsurpassed flexibility and capability for a variety of applications. PW100 engines power aircraft in service with 366 operators in 130+ countries. More than 8,000 PW100/150 engines have been produced since the family entered service in 1984, accumulating more than 160 million flying hours.

Global customer support

Operators of PW100 engines are supported by Pratt & Whitney's industry-leading global customer support. This includes over 30 Pratt & Whitney-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 Pratt & Whitney rental and exchange engines in the industry.

Features

PW100 engines incorporate the latest advanced technologies to exceed our customers' expectations 

PW100-powered regional turboprop aircraft consume 25 to 40 per cent less fuel and produce up to 50 per cent lower CO2 emissions than similar sized jets, with correspondingly lower greenhouse gases. 38 PW100 models have been produced, ranging in shaft horsepower power from 1,800 shp to 5,000 shp. 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 propeller through a reduction gearbox, optimized to establish the best combination of engine and propeller efficiencies.
