Mitsubishi Aircraft Corporation took delivery of the first PurePower PW1200G engine at the Mitsubishi Regional Jet’s (MRJ) final-assembly factory in Aichi Prefecture, Japan. Pratt & Whitney shipped the PurePower engine in preparation of being mounted on the first MRJ flight test aircraft.

The delivery of the engine marks a major milestone toward MRJ’s completion, accelerating the final-assembly process with components. Pratt & Whitney shipped the PurePower 1200G engine from the Mirabel Aerospace Centre in Mirabel, Quebec, Canada.

P&W’s PurePower PW1000G series, with its unique Geared Turbofan™ technology, delivers significant operating cost and environmental benefits through increased efficiency. The engine’s low-pressure system operates at higher speeds for peak efficiency, while the fan operates at slower speeds for both optimum efficiency and significantly less noise. Pratt & Whitney designed the PW1200G engine exclusively for the MRJ.

Mitsubishi Aircraft remains firmly committed to the success of the MRJ program through strong partnerships with its suppliers worldwide.
