Boeing selected the Pratt & Whitney PW4062 engine as the standard production engine for the KC-767A global tanker transport aircraft programs already ordered by Japan and Italy.

The PW4062 engine, a member of successful PW4000 commercial engine family, will be the standard equipment for both domestic and international sales of the KC-767 aircraft. PW4062 represents the first military application of PW4000-series engine.

Currently more than 2,000 PW4000 engines power the Boeing B747-400, Boeing 767, Boeing MD-11, Airbus A300, and Airbus A310 airliners. Japan and Italy ordered 4 KC-767A tanker transport aircraft each and the US Air Force might order around 100 KC-767s to replace aging KC-135 tankers. The KC-767 aircraft is powered by two PW4062 engines.
