ATR 72-600 Engines Win EASA Certification
[Avionics Today June 15, 2014] The European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA) has issued certification for use of new Pratt and Whitney PW127N engines on ATR 72-600s.
“We are very satisfied with the good work which has been performed by the Pratt & Whitney, ATR and the certification authorities teams in order to develop an enhanced engine that will clearly further enhance the operational capabilities of the newest ATR 72-600s. Thanks to the PW127N engines, airlines operating in mountain environments will benefit from further improved performances, while keeping their operating and maintenance costs at very competitive levels," said ATR Chief Executive Patrick de Castelbajac.
