Media Advisory: Pratt & Whitney Canada Celebrates PurePower® PW800 Engine Selection by Gulfstream with Significant Presence at NBAA 2014

ORLANDO, FLORIDA--(Marketwired - Oct. 17, 2014) - Pratt & Whitney Canada (P&WC) is ready to mark the selection of its next-generation PurePower PW800 engines by Gulfstream in a series of events at the upcoming National Business Aviation Association (NBAA) annual convention and tradeshow. The convention will take place in Orlando, Florida, from October 21-23. P&WC is a United Technologies Corporation company (NYSE:UTX).

NBAA 2014 activities will follow less than a week after P&WC announced that its PurePower PW800 engines are the power behind the new Gulfstream G500 and G600 business jets. A 16,000-pound-thrust-class powerhouse, the PurePower PW800 engine is optimized for high-flying, fast, long-range business jets and shares the same proven, rigorously tested core technology used in Pratt & Whitney's award-winning PurePower family of geared turbofan commercial engines.
