The CF34-8 is an advanced 14,000 pound thrust class turbofan propulsion system designed for the new generation 70 and 90-passenger regional jets.
The CF34-8 takes full advantage of the experience gained on the CF34-3 engine's 27 million flight hours of airline operation.
It incorporates all the service-proven reliability, environmental and operational characteristics that have earned the CF34 engine family an excellent global reputation with airline operators for exceptional performance.
The CF34-8 engine has been in service for 10 years, and over 2,000 CF34-8 engines are in service on Bombardier's CRJ700 (CF34-8C1 & -8C5B1) and CRJ900 (CF34-8C5) aircraft and Embraer's 170/175 (CF34-8E5) aircraft. The CF34-8 has accumulated more than 24 million flight-hours and 18 million cycles. The engine's design has evolved over the decade with enhancements that have lowered part count, improved durability and have the ability to reduce maintenance costs.
