P&W to develop engine training centre at Hyderabad

Mumbai: Pratt & Whitney (P&W) plans to set up an engine training centre at Hyderabad airport to train aircraft engineers and technicians on current and new engine models. The Hyderabad training facility will be Pratt & Whitney’s third such centre in the world and will be operational early next year, said Palash Roy Chowdhury, country manager (India), Pratt & Whitney. He, however, declined to share the total investment for the Hyderabad centre.

At present, over 300 aircraft in India use engines made by P&W and International Aero Engines (a joint venture company in which P&W is an important stakeholder). The company will be supplying the geared turbofan engines for another 300 Airbus and Embraer planes ordered by GoAir, IndiGo and Air Costa.
An engine maker provides training credits to airlines when it supplies new engines. Currently, aircraft engineers and technicians who work on P&W engines travel to the US for training. With the Hyderabad centre coming up, there will be no need to travel to the US and this will help airlines save costs.
