Honeywell Engines Set the Benchmark for Turbine Helicopters

July 9, 2015

Honeywell Aerospace powers many of the most predominant helicopter families in the military and commercial rotorcraft market. Honeywell’s LTS101 and HTS900 engines reduce operator costs while providing the power to lift heavy loads under the most demanding operational conditions.

The LTS101 850-D leads the intermediate helicopter segment and the HTS900 is the growth version of the engine. Honeywell has invested more than $40 million in LTS101 redesign efforts over the last two decades. As a result, it has achieved new thresholds of engine reliability and has reduced the in-flight shutdown rate and unscheduled engine removal rate by more than 85%. All the while, Honeywell is investing and developing a new 1,000-shaft horsepower turboshaft engine, the HTS900, which was recently FAA/Transport Canada certified on the Eagle 407HP. The HTS900 provides operators with increased payload and dash speed, and with up to a 17% reduction in fuel consumption over the stock 407.

In partnership with Aviation Week, Honeywell will host a webinar on the LTS101 and HTS900 on Tuesday, July 21, 2015 from 1:00PM -2:00PM EDT. Co-hosted by Eagle Copters and Air Work New Zealand, the webinar will address operational benefits of the LTS101 and the HTS900. Register for the webinar here.
