  1. Gulfstream G500; 600 Could Be In Some Nacelle Turbulence
    News is that a contracted company by Pratt & Whitney Canada that has been responsible for making parts of the PW800 has stopped production of the Nacelle part of the engine that is destined to power the Gulfstream G500 and G600. There is a dispute going on between Pratt & Whitney Canada and a company called Nordam. "After months of unsuccessful attempts to resolve a contract dispute with Pratt & Whitney Canada, we have suspended production on the Gulfstream G500/G600…program," said Nordam CEO Meredith Madden in a July 5 dated release.
  2. This dispute could hamper the back end of the development of Gulfstream's newest jets but Gulfstream is still confident for EIS to happen on time. According to a statement released by a Pratt & Whitney Canada spokesman, "Pratt & Whitney has worked diligently for more than a year with our contracted supplier Nordam to resolve their challenges on the PW800 nacelle program. Our objectives have been to minimize the impact on the Gulfstream program and assist our supplier. Despite having a contract requiring them to perform, Nordam has chosen to breach its contract with us by suspending work on the PW800 nacelle program and we will hold them accountable. P&W is laser-focused on supporting its customer’s engine delivery timelines, and we are taking all measures to minimize the impact on our customer’s aircraft programs."
