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 flights. As Bob Saia indicated to Addison Schonland in our recent podcast, the engine performed better than expected, enabling PW to extend the flight testing program and put the program ahead of schedule, conducting some tests originally scheduled for next year.

This bodes well for the CSeries, MRJ, A320neo and MS-21 programs that will use the PW1000G series engine, which is scheduled for entry into service in 2013 with the CSeries.
