THE HF120® ENGINE IS...

GE Honda has joined two names synonymous with invention to create unprecedented performance—a product igniting change in the industry—the all-new 2,000-pound thrust class turbofan power plant. Built to last, HF120 delivers advanced technology designed for speed, efficiency, and the smoothest ride.

FL450

The fastest engine in its class, the HF120 enables effortless climb to FL450 and beyond. Its high fan and core pressure ratio provides increased aircraft speed and reduced climb time to higher cruising altitudes. With a low thrust lapse rate, the engine allows for best in class initial climb nearing 4,000 feet per minute and reduces time to climb by more than 40%.

ADVANCED

The engine represents decades of research and development. A wide-chord, swept titanium blisk fan with composite fan outer guide vanes and the use of innovative turbine blade and combustor materials are just some of the unique features the HF120 brings to the light jet market.

SILENT

Smart placement of the rotor dynamic resonant frequencies outside of the engine taxi and flight settings minimizes unwanted cabin noise. Tight tolerance controls and exceptional build quality deliver low fan and core vibration levels. Low levels of vibration transmission to the fuselage result in a quiet cabin and the smoothest flying ride in its class.

TOUGH

Setting new standards for durability and efficiency, superalloys used in the hot section permit a higher operating temperature with extended parts life. All HF120s are monitored closely via proven large aircraft engine proactive diagnostic systems to minimize downtime and enable longer uninterrupted service.

EFFICIENT

Using innovative aerodynamic designs, the HF120 delivers greater cycle efficiency while optimizing operability. Unique airblast fuel nozzles provide better fuel atomization yielding superior fuel-to-air combustion to minimize fuel burn. Laser drilled combustor liner holes ensure minimum pressure drop across the combustor, enabling optimum transfer of compressor energy to the turbine side. This unique design offers outstanding overall environmental benefits, including low NOx, CO, and HC emissions.

RELIABLE

All of these amazing features combine to create an engine that redefines dependability. Extensive testing in excess of 23,000 cycles and simulated 5,000 flight cycles run on a single engine reveal proven reliability and readiness for longer uninterrupted operation.
