The CT7 military baseline engine was derived from the T700-GE-700 engine, designed for the U.S. Army's UH-60A Black Hawk. First certified in 1977 an improved model incorporating innovative technologies, the CT7-2, was placed into service powering the Bell 214ST.
Ruggedness, safety and the ability to operate reliably under adverse environmental conditions while requiring minimal maintenance are the trademark values of the CT7 engine family.
The CT7 military engines represent a quantum leap in reliability and maintainability over other engines in their class. Since its introduction, the CT7 engine family has been proven in extreme environments, and in demanding passenger revenue service, amassing more than 60 million engine flight hours when combined with the entire CT7/T700 family.
The CT7/T700 engine family is the most widely used in its class--powering over 20 types of rotary and fixed-wing aircraft for close to 125+ customers in 50+ countries.
