P&W means ‘Dependable Engines’. To achieve this, we had to fatigue test our alloys. Herb Walker managed a team that tested, developed fatigue technology and created the PW Life system which enables P&W designers to design light weight reliable engines. The system was FAA certified giving P&W an edge over our competitors. Over the past half century, the system has grown to incorporate the latest alloys and reflect the field experience of the P&W fleet of engines. The integrity of the system has been maintained and is being used for our latest commercial engines. Herb Walker
