Honeywell T55 Engines To Power Germany’s First Chinook Helicopters

Honeywell T55 Engines To Power Germany’s First Chinook Helicopters

  • More than 100 engines will support Germany’s new fleet of the iconic CH-47F Chinook

PHOENIX, Feb. 26, 2024 – Honeywell (NASDAQ: HON) today announced it will supply 105 T55-GA-714A engines to support Germany’s procurement of new CH-47F aircraft, the country’s first fleet of Chinook helicopters. This sale supports Honeywell’s alignment with the compelling megatrend of the future of aviation.

“The German army’s selection of the CH-47F Chinook helicopter is a testament to the reputation of not just the CH-47F, but also the T55 engines that have powered that helicopter since the 1960s,” said Dave Marinick, president, Engines and Power Systems, Honeywell Aerospace Technologies. “Chinooks have proved to be one of the most versatile vehicles in military history, and perform missions that include troop transport, search and rescue, and special operations, among others. We are humbled to deliver the T55 engines that will support Germany’s growing military and heavy-lift capabilities.”

Honeywell’s T55 engine is a world leader in powering heavy-lift helicopters. Over 1,000 CH-47 helicopters powered by T55s are operated today by militaries and civil aviation entities around the world. Honeywell’s latest T55-GA-714A engine configuration produces nearly 5,000-shaft horsepower, powering Chinook aircraft up to 170 knots even in demanding operating conditions.

Honeywell first delivered the T55 engine to the U.S. Army in 1961 at 2,200 shaft horsepower for the CH-47A helicopter. Since then, the engine’s power has more than doubled to a 5,000-shaft horsepower class engine and logged some 12 million hours of operation on the Boeing CH-47 and MH-47 Chinook helicopters.

The order and supply of the T55 engines for the German military is managed through the office of U.S. Army Foreign Military Sales.
