Honeywell Aerospace has been selected as the production aircraft engine supplier for the Textron AirLand Scorpion aircraft. Honeywell’s proven TFE731-40AR-3S engine was previously selected for the development stage of the program and this agreement has been extended to the aircraft production phase.
The Scorpion is designed to perform a wide range of diverse missions and offers one-of-a-kind intelligence, surveillance, reconnaissance and strike capabilities at an unmatched value with low operating costs. The mature, lightweight TFE731 engine complements the aircraft’s multipurpose role in the marketplace.
The TFE731-40AR-3S engine is the latest evolution of the TFE731 family of engines that entered service in 1972. It has accumulated more than 90 million hours of operation with more than 13,000 engines delivered, all backed by Honeywell’s unmatched global customer support network.
