Honeywell’s new HTF7350 engine to power Bombardier Challenger 350
Honeywell has announced that its HTF7350, the latest engine to join its successful HTF7000 series, will power Bombardier’s new Challenger 350* super midsize business jet. In addition to the HTF7350, Honeywell will supply Bombardier with its 36-150 APU, which is currently on the Challenger 300 aircraft, its Inertial Navigation System and Enhanced Ground Proximity Warning System (EGPWS) database for improved navigation and situational awareness. Honeywell’s pioneering EGPWS database is proved with more than 800 million flight hours to date and contains data on approximately 30,000 runways and 80,0000 objects in more than 10,000 airports worldwide. The engine — a derivative of the HTF7000, which has proven its reliability by powering the Challenger 300 aircraft since its launch in 2003 — delivers a greater than 7% thrust increase and features Honeywell’s latest systems designed to lower fuel consumption and reduce emissions. Boasting class-leading reliability, the HTF7000-series engine family has now surpassed 1.5 million flight hours with more than 99% dispatch reliability.
