Mitsubishi Aircraft Corporation has taken delivery of its first PurePower PW1200G engine at the Mitsubishi Regional Jets (MRJ) final-assembly factory in Aichi Prefecture, Japan.

Pratt & Whitney shipped the PurePower engine in preparation of being mounted on the first MRJ flight test aircraft.

The delivery of the engine marks a major milestone toward MRJs completion, accelerating the final-assembly process with components. Pratt & Whitney shipped the PurePower 1200G engine from the Mirabel Aerospace Centre in Mirabel, Quebec, Canada.

P&Ws PurePower PW1000G series, with its unique Geared Turbofan technology, delivers significant operating cost and environmental benefits through increased efficiency. The engines low-pressure system operates at higher speeds for peak efficiency, while the fan operates at slower speeds for both optimum efficiency and significantly less noise.

Pratt & Whitney designed the PW1200G engine exclusively for the MRJ.
