Honeywell engines to power 2 Embraer aircraft models

Honeywell (NYSE: HON) has announced its HTF7500E engines will power Embraer Pretor 600 and Praetor 500 aircraft, the company said.

The engines bring a combination of best-in-class reliability, enhanced dispatchability, reduced noise and increased fuel efficiency. Embraer is also equipping these models with Honeywell´s auxiliary power units, cabin-related management systems, pressure and control systems, and environmental controls, along with optional inertial reference units.

The HTF7500E engine was designed from the beginning with thrust potential to accommodate growth. By taking advantage of the HTF7500E´s full power capability and excellent fuel efficiency, and through the addition of advanced winglets and fuel capacity, Embraer achieved a 3,900-nautical-mile range for its super midsize aircraft, the Praetor 600. Its midsize sibling, the Praetor 500, achieved a range of 3,250 nautical miles.
