Pratt & Whitney, a division of United Technologies Corp, has announced training for its Geared Turbofan (GTF) and engine technical training courses, which have been certified by the European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA).

The Directorate-General of Civil Aviation (DGCA) has certified the GTF training, complementing the DGCA certification of V2500-A5 training obtained in early 2017. The certified courses will be conducted at the Pratt & Whitney Customer Training Center in Hyderabad and provide enhanced opportunities for aviation skill development.

“Pratt & Whitney has had a strong presence in India for more than 70 years, and this programme brings the latest in aerospace technology and training closer to our customers in the region,” said Palash Roy Chowdhury, Country Manager, Pratt & Whitney, United Technologies Corporation India. “We’re honoured to be able to deliver world-class training programmes that will help create skilled aviation talent within India.”

The Hyderabad Training Center has a capacity of 5,000 student days each year. In addition, in support of the Centre’s national skills development campaign, Skill India, Pratt & Whitney will offer customised training for students as well as development programmes for college and university faculty members.

"With the Hyderabad Training Center we bring hands-on, live, world-class aerospace training closer to our customers in this high-growth region," said Bruce Hall, general manager, Customer Training, Pratt & Whitney. "We are proud to deliver training programmes that will help create a more skilled local aviation talent pool and support India in becoming a leader in the global aviation industry."

Pratt & Whitney has established three training centres in East Hartford, Connecticut, Beijing, China and Hyderabad, to enhance the skills of the aerospace workforce throughout the world. The training centres provide instruction in general engine familiarisation, line and base maintenance and borescope inspection training for Pratt & Whitney’s portfolio of products, including the revolutionary GTF engine.

The V2500 engine is offered through International Aero Engines AG, a multinational aero engine consortium whose shareholders comprise Pratt & Whitney, a division of United Technologies Corporation; Pratt & Whitney Aero Engines International GmbH; Japanese Aero Engines Corporation; and MTU Aero Engines GmbH.

A letter from the Editor


Dear Readers,

The coronavirus crisis has changed the world completely in the last few months. All of us have been locked into our homes, economic activity has come to a near standstill. Everyone has been impacted.

Including your favourite business and financial newspaper. Our printing and distribution chains have been severely disrupted across the country, leaving readers without access to newspapers. Newspaper delivery agents have also been unable to service their customers because of multiple restrictions.

In these difficult times, we, at BusinessLine have been working continuously every day so that you are informed about all the developments – whether on the pandemic, on policy responses, or the impact on the world of business and finance.
