AirLife Denver is converting its Bell 407 helicopter to an Eagle 407HP with Honeywell’s HTS900 turboshaft engine, Honeywell announced on 29 August.

The Honeywell engine delivers high power-to-weight ratio and is designed for missions that require the lifting of heavy loads safely under hot and high flying conditions.

Using intellectual property licensed from Bell Flight, Honeywell and Eagle Copters launched the Eagle 407HP programme to improve the performance of existing Bell 407 helicopters by replacing the standard engine with the Honeywell HTS900 engine.

Under the partnership, Honeywell provides the HTS900 engine while Eagle Copters performs the conversion. Eagle received a supplemental type certificate covering the retrofit programme in 2014.
