The Power Behind Regional Airline Turboprops
1,800 to over 5,000 shaft horsepower
The PW100/PW150 engine family is the benchmark for low fuel consumption on routes of 350 miles or less. That means they consume 25% to 40% less fuel and produce up to 50% fewer CO2 emissions than similar-sized regional jets. Our engines are also biofuel compatible. Airlines and governments count on the reliability and versatility of our engines to fly in many challenging environments.


The regional aviation industry – which we helped create – brings the convenience of commercial flight to countless communities around the world and fuels new business opportunities. 

The Power to Perform, Reliably

No other engine family for the regional market delivers higher propulsion at takeoff and climb when it comes to powering short-haul, regional aircraft. 

We have built our reputation on the reliability of our engines. The PW150A engine, for example, has a dispatch availability of more than 99.96%. Our PW100/PW150 engines have four times more flying hours than our nearest competitor.

Building the Future of Regional Flight

We are working on next-generation engine technologies tailored to meet the business needs of our many diverse customers. We are looking at bringing more power, improved fuel consumption, better noise and emissions performance and improved maintainability, while delivering the same durability and dependability our customers expect.

As part of the UTC family, we have access to vast R&D resources ranging from big data to manufacturing technologies, and emerging digital technologies to new engine development.

P&WCSMART maintenance solutions extend the life of your engines with cost-effective solutions


Our FAST™ solution lets you make informed decisions with full-flight data


Oil Analysis Technology identifies issues up to hundreds of hours before they happen


Advisory Services give you recommendations to help you grow and minimize engine-related costs


PW100 engines incorporate the latest advanced technologies to exceed our customers' expectations 

PW100-powered regional turboprop aircraft consume 25 to 40 per cent less fuel and produce up to 50 per cent lower CO2 emissions than similar sized jets, with correspondingly lower greenhouse gases. 38 PW100 models have been produced, ranging in shaft horsepower power from 1,800 shp to 5,000 shp. The PW100 is a three-shaft, two-spool engine. Low pressure and high pressure compressors are powered independently by cooled turbine stages. A third shaft couples the power turbine to the propeller through a reduction gearbox, optimized to establish the best combination of engine and propeller efficiencies.  


Ranging in power from 1,800 shp to over 5,000 shp, PW100 engines are available in 38 models.
