Honeywell’s HTF7700L engines gain FAA certification
Honeywell has received FAA certification for its HRF7700L engines that power the Citation Longitude.
It is now the sixth HTF7700 variant that has been certificated. Other variants are currently in service on the Bombardier Challenger 300 and Challenger 350, the Gulfstream G280, and the Embraer Legacy 450 and Legacy 500.
“Honeywell’s HTF7000 family continues to lead the way in performance, reliability and cost of ownership as it continues to expand its presence across business aviation,” said Brian Sill, president, Engines and Power Systems, Honeywell Aerospace. “The HTF7700L engine certification for the Citation Longitude aircraft marks another successful milestone for the HTF7000 family, adding to its growing heritage.”
Honeywell says that the HTF7000 family has now flown more than 3.5 million flight hours, and will deliver the 2,000th engine in 2018.
The Citation Longitude flew for the first time in 2016, and is expected to receive FAA certification before the end of the year.
