Pratt & Whitney Canada PW610F

Pratt & Whitney Canada (P&WC) created the PW610F engine specifically for the Eclipse 500. The PW610F turbofans are a new generation of high-bypass turbofans, flat rated at 900 pounds of takeoff thrust. PW610Fs are also exceptionally quiet engines that meet current Stage 3 noise requirements, and will easily meet upcoming Stage 4 standards.
