The Scorpion is designed to perform a wide range of diverse missions

Honeywell to power Textron Scorpion aircraft

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.

"Selection of Honeywell's TFE731-40 engine for the Scorpion continues the strong partnership we've had with Textron for over two decades," said Mike Madsen, president, Defense and Space, Honeywell Aerospace. "Honeywell's ability to provide a proven, reliable and high-performance engine for this platform helped Textron AirLand bring this innovative aircraft to market in a shorter timeframe and cost-effective manner."

Honeywell's TFE731-40AR-3S engine will provide the required power, high reliability and reduced operator expenses due to its longer inspection intervals, low parts count and low thrust specific fuel consumption. This differentiates Scorpion from its competitors and enables it to exceed operator requirements.

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.
