Formed and started operations in 1925. Pratt & Whitney (PRW), a United Technologies Corporation Company, is a world leader in the design, manufacture and service of airplane engines, industrial gas turbines and space propulsion systems.

April 1925. Pratt & Whitney (PRW) was founded in Hartford, Connecticut, USA by Frederick Rentschler. (PRW)'s 1st airplane engine was a 410 horsepower, air-cooled Wasp which delivered unprecedented performance and reliability for the time and transformed the aviation industry.

October 2005: Pratt & Whitney (PRW) will manage all parts inventory and logistics including new spare parts, used serviceable material and part repair under an exclusive contract with United Airlines (UAL) covering 217 (PW4000) engines powering (UAL)'s 747s, 767s and 777s. The 10-year deal is the largest Materials Management Program agreement in (PRW) history and includes a renewal option, the company said. Value was not disclosed. In support of the (PMP), (PRW) said it will establish a material and logistics hub at San Francisco International Airport that is expected to be fully functional by year end. It also will manage the on-wing performance of the (PW4000) fleet using its Web-based Advanced Diagnostics and Engine Maintenance System.

February 2006: Pratt & Whitney (PRW) and (MTU) will collaborate on a "technology readiness program" to develop high-pressure compressors for the next generation of mid-thrust engines powering eventual successor airplanes to the A320 and 737. Ground rig testing of the new compressor is scheduled for this fall in Munich.

"Development of a whole new generation of single-aisle, medium-range airplanes will depend to a large degree on the availability of extremely efficient new engines," Pratt Senior VP Engineering Paul Adams said. "This program will help validate the technologies we and (MTU) believe are required. It also supports our effort to develop a mid-thrust geared turbofan engine."
