The Honeywell F124 turbofan engine meets the most rigorous requirements of modern light combat and advanced military trainer aircraft: namely high performance and mission-ready reliability.
The F124 is a high-performance, low bypass-ratio turbofan engine designed in accordance with U.S. military specifications and standards, including the U.S. Air Force’s engine structural integrity program (ENSIP) - MIL-STD 1783. As a result of its modular design and construction, all components are completely interchangeable and require no balancing, shimming or trimming. The F124 also features an integrated engine health monitoring system (EMS) that provides enhanced troubleshooting, performance trend monitoring, and component life management.
The engine has the highest thrust-to-weight ratio in its class. Incorporating a three-stage fan and a five-stage axi-centrifugal high-pressure compressor, the design of the F124 engine maximizes engine performance while providing exceptional inlet distortion tolerance and stall resistance.
