Pratt & Whitney has completed its first round of flight tests for the PW1524G engine for the Bombardier CSeries, accumulating 115 hours of flight time from 25 .

This bodes well for the CSeries, MRJ, and MS-21 programs that will use the series engine, which is scheduled for entry into service in 2013 with the CSeries.
