Honeywell Specialty Materials : 25 April, 2006  (New Product)

Honeywell announced today that its latest T5317BCV turboshaft engine, rated at 1,800 shaft horse power, has successfully powered the first flight of the Bell Medium Utility Helicopter.

The T5317BCV is a production engine providing 1,800 thermodynamic shaft horsepower at take off on a standard day. It is based on the T53-L-703 engine, which currently powers the Bell Huey II helicopter providing 28% more takeoff horsepower.

Engine improvements include the new PM Astroloy turbine disc material, an improved reduction gearbox and accessory drive carrier design. The T5317BCV engine provides operators with a 5,000-hour Time Between Overhaul and a four year or 2,000 hour warranty, driving operating cost to its lowest level for the T53 family of engines. A support package is included with each production engine. This includes Maintenance Publications and Limited Initial Provisioning.

The T5317BCV production engines for the Bell 210 helicopter will incorporate the latest turbine designs with improved materials allowing the engine to provide the lowest direct operating cost.

'Built on 50 million flight hours of experience in the Bell helicopter product family, the T5317BCV has the lowest direct operating cost and is the best engine for the Bell 210,' said Nasos Karras, Honeywell Vice President, Military and Helicopter Propulsion Systems. 'We expect FAA certification of the T5317BCV engine by end of the first quarter 2005 with production scheduled to begin immediately following certification.'

Honeywell is convening a T53 Operator Advisory Council. The council will provide a forum for T53 Operators to directly discuss topics of concern in addition to product improvements and enhancements with Honeywell.
