Pratt & Whitney To Provide Engines For 100 SkyWest Embraer Jets

Aircraft Deliveries Scheduled To Begin In 2020

Pratt & Whitney will provide exclusive power for up to 100 firm plus 100 "purchase right" Embraer Second Generation E-Jets for an order announced Monday by Embraer and SkyWest, Inc. Deliveries are scheduled to begin in 2020.

"SkyWest is known as a leader in the regional industry," said Brad Rich, president, SkyWest, Inc. "We're confident that Pratt & Whitney's PurePower engine further strengthens our position as a leader and demonstrates our commitment to excellence and economic performance."

"A guiding principle of SkyWest includes the efficient use of all resources, so we are very proud that SkyWest selected the Embraer Jet with the PurePower engine," said Todd Kallman, president, Pratt & Whitney Commercial Engines. "The PurePower engine family offers significant benefits that have been proven extensively in more than 4,400 hours of ground and flight testing."

Each Embraer Second Generation E-Jet will be powered by two PurePower engines. Pratt & Whitney has announced orders for more than 3,500 engines that include announced and unannounced firm orders, plus options. The PurePower family of engines uses an advanced gear system allowing the engine's fan to operate at a different speed than the low-pressure compressor and turbine. The combination of the gear system and an all-new advanced core deliver the improvements in fuel efficiency, environmental emissions and noise.
