Description: The PW100 family of turboprop engines was developed by Pratt & Whitney Canada to power regional aircraft with a seating capacity between 30 and 70 passengers. The engine family provides output power ranging from 2,000-shp to more than 5,000-shp while outstanding by its operating economics, reliability and durability. Regularly, the service life of this kind of engine extends beyond 12,000 hours on wing.

All the PW100 family member engines share a common core, a two-stage turbine layout and electronic engine control among other features. The engines incorporate the latest technologies developed by Pratt & Whitney for larger passenger aircraft engine programs such as the PW4000. Fuel efficiency is one aspect being improved by P&W Canada on every new PW100 engine. The PW100 engine family has logged more than 80 million operating hours on over 1,900 aircraft.

The PW150A turboprop engine is the most powerful engine of the PW100 turboprop engine family yielding approximately 7,000 shaft-horse-power (shp). It powers the Bombardier Q400 turboprop aircraft. The PW150B was selected to power the Lockheed-Martin proposal for the US Navy's Multi-mission Maritime Aircraft (MMA) program which wasa awarded to the Boeing 737.
