Pratt & Whitney Canada’s new PW535E turbofan engine for the Embraer Phenom 300 has reached its full takeoff thrust of 3,360 pounds at the company’s Longueuil, Quebec test facility. Embraer chose the PW535E turbofan in May 2005 to power the Phenom 300. This new member of the PW500 engine family features full- authority engine control and other advanced technologies in the turbine and compressor areas that increase thrust and improve fuel consumption. Certification is targeted for next year’s third quarter.
