Power on Display with Marenco Swisshelicopter

February 25, 2016

Next week, along with the rest of the helicopter industry, Honeywell will be heading to Louisville for the 2016 edition of HELI-EXPO. We are excited to be supporting Marenco Swisshelicopter at this important international event where they will also be present, showcasing the SKYe SH09.

The HTS900 engine powers the SKYe SH09 helicopter and, building on the announcement we made in December last year, we are proud to once again be providing a rotating mock-up of the engine for display on the Marenco booth. Commenting on the partnership, James Rowland, Customer Business Manager for Marenco commented, “This is a significant event in the helicopter industry’s calendar and, as well as showcasing the wide range of technology we can offer for helicopter operations on our own booth, we are committed to showcasing our engine as part of the SKYe SH09 offering.” James went on to say, “The HTS900 provides operators with significant operational advantages, for example, the engine’s performance in hot and high conditions is impressive and when you look at the low fuel consumption that accompanies this performance, the HTS900 and the SKYe SH09 are really a very attractive proposition for helicopter operators.”

The HTS900 engine is Honeywell’s next-generation, modern turbine engine for light to medium helicopters. The engine uses a dual centrifugal compressor to provide operators with greatly improved high and hot performance that means going farther, faster, with heavier loads using less fuel. Pilot workload is also reduced, especially during start-up, due to the inclusion of a dual-channel full authority digital engine control (FADEC) with manual back-up provision. This advanced FADEC makes flying procedures more secure and engine maintenance, planning and troubleshooting more efficient.
