RTX’s Pratt & Whitney Canada PT6A-52 selected to power new Piper M700 Fury

Pratt & Whitney Canada today announced its PT6A-52 engine has been selected by Piper Aircraft Inc. for the Piper M700 Fury aircraft.

This is the first time the PT6A-52 engine is used to power a single-engine turboprop. Pratt & Whitney is an RTX business.

Anthony Rossi, vice president, Global Sales and Marketing at Pratt & Whitney Canada said: “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,” .

“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.”

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.

John Calcagno, president and chief executive officer of Piper Aircraft said: “The Piper M700 Fury highlights the longstanding relationship between Piper Aircraft and Pratt & Whitney, solidifying our commitment to delivering unparalleled products to our customers.

“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.”
