In 2006, Honeywell and Pratt & Whitney joined together specifically to develop an advanced turboshaft helicopter engine that achieves the aggressive performance goals set by the U.S. Army: a 50% more powerful and 25% more fuel-efficient engine for the Black Hawk and Apache fleets. The dual-spool T900 engine developed by ATEC will meet or exceed every performance standard set by the Army. ATEC supports U.S. jobs in engineering, supply chain, manufacturing and logistics. Honeywell and Pratt & Whitney have decades of experience powering commercial and military aircraft – including helicopters, cargo planes, tankers, trainers and fighters. ATEC combines the best technology and experience of these two industry leaders to produce the T900.
