Honeywell engines have been selected to power Embraer’s new business jet models Praetor 500 and Praetor 600.

The HTF7500E engine family is designed to provide improved dispatchability, reliability, fuel efficiency as well as reducing noise.

Part of Honeywell’s HTF7000 family of engines, the engine offers environmentally friendly solution with emissions below the International Civil Aviation Organization’s environmental protection standards.

HTF7500E includes the option for on-condition maintenance, which means that periodic inspections and maintenance can be performed on-wing, reducing expensive downtime.

Honeywell Aerospace Engines and Power Systems president Brian Sill said: “Honeywell continues to push the boundaries of propulsion engine performance, developing new technologies and design features to meet the growing needs of our business aviation customers.

“The HTF7500E will continue to provide Embraer customers with exceptional reliability while enabling Embraer to deliver on customer demands for additional range.”

Both the aircraft will be equipped with Upper Tech Panel that displays flight information and provides cabin management features, which will be available on personal devices via Honeywell Ovation Select.

Passengers will also have access to high-capacity high-speed internet connectivity through Viasat’s Ka-band with speeds of up to 16Mbps.

Embraer is currently developing the Praetor jets with two Praetor 600 prototypes deployed for flight tests as well as one production-conforming aircraft, and one production-conforming Praetor 500 in its maturity campaign.

Praetor 600 is scheduled to be certified and enter service by the second quarter of next year, followed by Praetor 500 in the third quarter.
