New Gulfstream G400 jet will be powered by PW800 engine

The all-new Gulfstream G400, which was unveiled Monday night alongside a long-range G800, will be powered by Pratt andamp; Whitney's PW800 engine."Gulfstream was the launch customer for the PW800 engine family, when the PW814GA-powered G500 entered into service in September 2018, followed by the PW815GA-powered G600 in August 2019," said Maria Della Posta, president of Pratt andamp; Whitney Canada. "The PW800 engine on the G400 will bring a new level of performance and efficiency to the large-cabin business aircraft class."The revamped G400 includes the largest cabin in its class, said Mark Burns, President of Gulfstream Aerospace. It will also feature a range of 4,200 nautical miles at a speed of Mach 0.85.Pratt andamp; Whitney will deliver a fully integrated powerplant comprised of the PW812GA engine and nacelle system provided by Collins Aerospace. The PW812GA is optimized for the G400 aircraft, including the latest full authority digital engine control (FADEC), engine health monitoring, and materials such as titanium and composites to deliver superior performance. The PW800 is the most environmentally responsible engine in its class. The engine offers double-digit improvements in fuel burn, emissions, maintenance times, and noise. The engine also promotes an exceptionally quiet and comfortable cabin."The PW800 engine family overall has been performing exceptionally well, benefitting from more than 75,000 hours of flight since entering into service," says Della Posta. "Gulfstream's selection of the PW812GA demonstrates the engine's mission-readiness, its flexibility and broad appeal in the mid- to large-business jet market."
