Pratt & Whitney Canada received type certification from TransportCanada for its new PW535E engine for the Embraer Phenom 300. The Fadec-equipped PW535E has a maximum takeoff thrust of 3,360 pounds and features “new advanced proven technologies” in the turbine and compressor areas to produce increased thrust with lower fuel consumption, according to P&WC. At the NBAA Convention in October, Embraer confirmed that the Phenom 300 is on track to be certified by year-end, with at least two copies slated for delivery to customers by New Year’s Day.
