  • The Right Engine

    Through cutting-edge technology and greater sustainability, the PW800 is equipped to push the B-52’s capabilities to unparalleled new heights.
  • The Right Fit

    We are the industry leader in the low-risk integration of commercial derivative engines with military aircraft, making us the right fit for the United States Air Force B-52 fleet.
Our mission has always been, and will always be to keep the B-52 mission-ready. We’ve powered the B-52 since its first flight, and we know exactly what it takes to operate at peak performance. We have the edge, the expertise, and the latest technology to push beyond limits and unleash new capabilities.

POWERING OUR PARTNERSHIP FORWARD

With a partnership that’s stood the test of time and innovations that know no limits, we have the momentum to keep breaking barriers together, through 2050 and beyond.

As industry leaders, we are the proven choice in the commercial market. Our unrivalled expertise in integrating propulsion systems goes beyond just the B-52 airframe. The PW800 supplanted Rolls Royce to power Gulfstream’s long-range, large-cabin G500 and G600 aircraft, and the GTF was selected over the GE Passport to power the Embraer E-Jets E2 family aircraft. We only offer dependable engines with the highest standards.

EXCELLENCE EVERY STEP OF THE WAY
