Pratt & Whitney Canada has been selected to provide the integrated powerplant system for the Dassault Aviation Falcon 7X business jet, which includes three Pratt & Whitney Canada PW307A engines.

‘This program is very important to our future as it represents over $3 billion of business for P&WC over the expected program life,’ said Gilles Ouimet, president and chief executive officer of P&WC.

The PW300 engine family has already accumulated more than 1.6 million flight hours. At the time of the PW307A’s certification, the PW300 engines will have amassed more than 3 million flight hours.

Another winner in the Dassault Aviation stakes is Honeywell – the company has been selected to supply the Dassault Falcon 7X business jet with its EASy Flight Deck avionics, auxiliary power unit (APU), Air Management System (AMS) and, with Parker Aerospace, the Hydraulic Power Generation system.
