ITEC and Aerialis joint together to bring F124 engine to new Aeralis fleet

Honeywell, through The International Turbine Engine Company (ITEC), has signed a memorandum of understanding (MOU) at Paris Air Show 2023 with aircraft designer and manufacturer AERALIS to integrate the Honeywell/ITEC F124 Engine into AERALIS' new modular aircraft.

AERALIS' fleet of aircraft comprise a common core fuselage that will be fully adaptable, using different wings and engines depending on the mission. This modular design means it can be reconfigured to take on a variety of roles, including training pilots with little or no flight experience, operational training, display, surveillance and light combat. It is expected that the acquisition and maintenance of the jets as a collective system will cost 60% less than a conventional light jet system thanks to the modular design, affording an 85% commonality in aircraft parts.

"The fifth and sixth generation of fighter jets requires a new approach to training and operational support roles that AERALIS is looking to deliver through its innovative approach to aircraft system design," said John Guasto, vice president of Defense and Space International at Honeywell Aerospace. "Honeywell/ITEC is pleased to be able to offer the F124 engine solution as part of AERALIS' system approach, delivering the reliability, thrust and affordability that other competitive offerings simply cannot match."
