“My #AeroPassion is summer evening spotting @YUL with my husband.”
Amanda's Biography

Amanda Ennis is part of the PW800 Project Engineering team at Pratt and Whitney Canada in Longueuil Quebec. She received her bachelor’s degree in Mechanical Engineering from McGill University in 2007 and MBA from Concordia University in 2015. Prior to being part of the Project Engineering team, she has had roles in design as well as in the development and test organizations. In 2013, she had the unique opportunity of testing turbo-fan engines on the P&WC Boeing 747sp flying test bed. Amanda is part of the Women’s Leadership Committee at P&WC dedicated to encouraging women to seek challenging and rewarding careers in Aerospace.

I am part of the PW800 Engine Project Engineering Team. I am currently responsible for the Accessory Gearbox and Turbine Exhaust Case for this engine family as well as the gearboxes on the PW1000 engine families, including the C-Series PW1524 engine. My role is to lead several interdisciplinary teams with respect to technical, operational and quality challenges that we experience for each of these modules.

P&WC is a leading research & development investor in Canadian aerospace. We invest close to $500 million per year in R&D, in order to create the next generation of green technologies in our research and manufacturing facilities across Canada and around the world. The company powers the largest fleet of business and regional aircraft and helicopters with more than 50,000 engines in service in over 200 countries.

I really enjoy being close to the product and making decisions that have a significant impact on the end product and customer.

Working on the certification of the PW814/PW815 engine from both the testing and project engineering perspectives. This includes being responsible for the first flight test campaign on our Boeing 747sp as a test engineer and Initial Maintenance Interval Testing as a project engineer.

Making decisions with regards to the quality of our products impacts our customers and all those who fly on their aircrafts.

My vision for Women in Aerospace is that we continue to encourage each other to bring our intellect and passion to this industry and demonstrate to younger generations just how rewarding it is to be part of the Aerospace community.

Honestly, the best advice I have ever received is to work like you have something to lose and never get comfortable. The uneasiness will push you well beyond what you thought you were capable of.

Through outreach and professional development activities, research, partnerships, thought leadership and online initiatives, we work with industry and academia to educate on the value of diversity for innovation, to inspire women to thrive and to celebrate the contributions of women in science and engineering.
