Pratt & Whitney Canada, a business unit of Pratt & Whitney, announced today that the U.S. Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) has certified the PW812D engine, designed to power the Dassault Falcon 6X business jet.
“The FAA is the third aviation authority to give its stamp of approval for the PW812D engine,” said Maria Della Posta, president, Pratt & Whitney Canada. “The engine has also been certified by Transport Canada and the European Union Aviation Safety Agency (EASA). We successfully achieved this critical step by working closely with Dassault since the launch of this great program.”
“We congratulate Pratt & Whitney Canada on achieving FAA certification for the PW812D engine,” said Eric Trappier, Chairman and CEO of Dassault Aviation. “Together, the PW812D engine and Falcon 6X aircraft are a winning combination, designed to set the bar in fuel efficiency, performance and comfort. This milestone brings us closer to the exciting entry into service of the Falcon 6X, expected mid-2023.”
