Pratt & Whitney Canada PW206B3 helicopter engine has been selected by the Government of Spain to power 36 Airbus H135 helicopters. The new order is part of a multi-agency acquisition program to equip the Spanish Air force, Spanish Navy, Guardia Civil and National Police with the latest generation light-twin helicopter.

“The PW206B3 is the third variant of the PW206B engine developed to power successive models of the H135 helicopter, one of the most popular light twin-engine helicopters on the market with more than 25 years of service in military and civilian applications,” said Nicolas Chabée, vice president, Sales & Marketing, Helicopters, Pratt & Whitney Canada. “We are confident this helicopter and engine combination will serve the needs of the Spanish Military, Guardia Civil and National Police forces for many years to come."

The PW200 engine family offers a proven powerplant with exceptional performance and mission flexibility, low fuel consumption, light weight, and compact architecture. With reliability levels that exceed industry standards, it remains the engine of choice for the helicopter industry and its enduring design allows for minimum maintenance, helping to trim operating costs.
