Under a new five-year agreement, Pratt & Whitney Canada (P&WC) will provide its PT6A jet engines for operators selecting a new airframe modification package from Cascade Aircraft Conversions.

P&WC will supply PT6A-11AG, -15AG and -34AG engines for the conversions which will accompany installation of the Cascade Pressure Cowl. The Pressure Cowl modifies airflow to the engine and also maintains necessary filtering capabilities for agricultural operators to perform tasks such as aerial crop dusting.
"This conversion program provides operators of mature aircraft the opportunity to upgrade to PT6A turbine engine power and reliability, and increase productivity," said Denis Parisien, vice president of P&WC's general aviation division.
