The YT706

Increased Power

The YT706 engine was selected to power the MH-60M Black Hawk aircraft for Special Operations applications.

  

Engine Overview

The YT706 engine is based on the FAA-certified CT7-8A engine. Compared with the T700 currently powering the H-60 helicopters, the YT706 engine has a larger compressor, hot section improvements, a full authority digital engine control, and includes "failed-fixed" control design, which retains engine power in the event that both channels of the control should fail. The YT706 provides up to 30 percent more power than the T700-701C and will increase the hot-and-high mission capability of the MH-60M Black Hawk.
