Tuesday, March 22, 2012
Bob Saia, vice president, Next Generation Product Family, was interviewed by Addison Schonland of AirInsight at the International Society of Transport Aircraft Trading (ISTAT) Americas conference in Scottsdale, Ariz., this week. In the interview, Saia provides an update on the PurePower engine program.
The PurePower program has tested nine engines to date, with approximately 2,000 hours of full engine testing and about 5,000 cycles of endurance testing. These tests have demonstrated fuel efficiency and low noise - and the capability of the engine. The PurePower engine is real, it works, and it's flying today.
