Bombardier Aerospace has plans to test a new plane that includes quieter engines made by Pratt & Whitney. The turbofan engines should burn about 20% less fuel and could make Bombardier the first carrier to debut the engines. "They're so quiet as you come in for an approach, if you shut off the engines you can't tell the difference," said Alan Epstein, Pratt & Whitney's vice president for technology and environment.
