Turbine Conversions, Ltd. and Pratt & Whitney Canada (P&WC), a subsidiary of United Technologies Corp (NYSE: UTX), have signed a long-term contract for the sale of PT6A-21 engines to power the recently announced Cessna 206 turbine conversion.
PT6 technology has powered 125 different applications since its introduction. More than 46,000 PT6 engines have been manufactured, with 23,000 now in service. The engine has logged more than 375 million flight hours.
