A heritage of excellence

Since 1928, Pratt & Whitney Canada has produced some of the hardest working, most reliable engines in the aviation industry. Our drive and passion to exceed expectations has led to the certification of more than 100 engines in the last 25 years.

Innovation starts here

Building sophisticated engines, such as the PurePower® PW800 engine, requires an enormous amount of brainpower, research and development. That’s why we invest nearly CDN $500 million every year and have close to 1,500 Research & Development employees working day in and day out to deliver the next innovation.
