PT6 turns 50

Last year, the PT-6 engine, manufactured by Pratt & Whitney Canada, reached its 50th anniversary, with over 51,000 engines produced! The PT-6, used in the PlaneSense® fleet, is renowned for its performance, reliability, and incredible safety record. This combination secures Pratt & Whitney’s position as the most successful turboprop engine manufacturer in history. The PT-6 has been used in over 130 different types of aircraft and has even been utilized to power boats, trains, an Indy 500 racecar, and a specially designed Corvette known as the “Jet Vette.”
