Pratt & Whitney congratulates Embraer on receiving the prestigious Aviation Week 2019 Commercial Aviation Grand Laureate Award for the E-Jets E2 program. The E2 program also received the Laureate Award in the commercial aircraft platform category. The E2 is widely recognized for setting a new benchmark for performance and environmental leadership in the regional jet market, and we are honored to contribute to that legacy.
Pratt & Whitney’s GTF™ engine exclusively powers the E2 family, including the E190-E2 which entered service in 2018. This accomplishment was not only a result of Embraer’s history of innovation, but also reflects their collaborative approach with partners such as Pratt & Whitney. Embraer and Pratt & Whitney share a sincere commitment to advancing aviation and connecting people around the world. We are proud to celebrate this exceptional aircraft.
