Meet the HTF7700L Engine
The HTF7700L engine, part of the HTF7000 family of engines and created for the Cessna Citation Longitude, recently received FAA certification. The engine is already in service on the Bombardier Challenger 300/350 (HTF7000/HTF7350) As well as the Legacy 450/500 (HTF7500) and Gulfstream G280 (HTF7250).
Plus, with this FAA engine certification, the Cessna Citation Longitude, powered by two HTF7700L engines, is poised to receive certification by the end of 2017.
Better for the Environment
Designed for low emissions, this newest member of their successful line is a boon for the environment. This was a goal of the aeronautics company when they launched the line in 2004, since which point nearly 2,000 having been built in their Phoenix plant. The HTF7700L is the fifth in the series, all of which focus on fuel efficiency and reduced emissions.
Reduced Maintenance Costs
With key line units able to be replaced in less than 20 minutes—and with tools found in nearly every mechanic’s toolbox—maintenance for the engine is quick and easy. Engineers had owners and mechanics in mind with the design, as access to the engine is simplified, further reducing maintenance time.
By allowing for on-condition maintenance, the HTF7700L reduces downtime. Mechanics are able to conduct periodic inspections and standard upkeep on-wing for ongoing preventative maintenance. Naturally, this results in lower overall costs.
The HTF7000 family of engines has accrued more than 3 million flight hours, and during those, the engine has exceeded all expectations for durability, maintenance, and reliability. As a result, business jet owners and operators have enjoyed not only outstanding performance but also one of the best levels of fuel efficiency in the industry. Together, that results in a much lower cost of ownership.
