Pratt & Whitney Canada PT6A-52 to Power Piper M700 Fury Aircraft

Our Bureau - : Feb 7, 2024 - : 9:46 pm

Pratt & Whitney Canada announced its PT6A-52 engine has been selected by Piper Aircraft Inc. for the Piper M700 Fury aircraft on Tuesday (Feb. 6). This is the first time the PT6A-52 engine is used to power a single-engine turboprop aircraft.

“During our 55-year collaboration with Piper, we’ve had the privilege of powering some of the most successful single-engine turboprops in the industry,” said Anthony Rossi, vice president, Global Sales and Marketing at Pratt & Whitney Canada. “The M700 Fury is an evolutionary addition to the Piper line-up that includes the PT6A-42A-powered M500 and M600 programs. In total, we have supplied Piper with 12 different PT6A engine models, delivering 3,100 engines to power more than 2,000 Piper aircraft.”

“The Piper M700 Fury highlights the longstanding relationship between Piper Aircraft and Pratt & Whitney, solidifying our commitment to delivering unparalleled products to our customers,” said John Calcagno, president and chief executive officer of Piper Aircraft. “The PT6A-52 engine in the M700 Fury retains its full 700 shaft horsepower up to 24,000 feet, giving the aircraft exceptional power at high altitudes.”

Pratt & Whitney worked closely with Piper to integrate an electronic low-oil-level indicator, the first such device on a Piper aircraft, that facilitates the pre-flight process.

With the PT6A-52 as its powerplant, the new Piper M700 Fury will also offer its customers a maximum cruise speed of 301 knots, a maximum climb rate of more than 2,000 feet per minute, 25% better take-off field length, and landing performance compared to the M600SLS aircraft. The aircraft can also carry six passengers with a maximum take-off weight of 6,000 pounds.

Operators of PT6A engines are supported by Pratt & Whitney-owned and designated service facilities around the world, field support managers on six continents, a 24/7 Customer First Centre for rapid expert support, advanced diagnostic capabilities including the Know My PT6 app, and a pool of the company’s rental and exchange engines in the industry.
