The General Electric CF33 turbofan engines are driven by a four stage turbine with an annular combustor. This powerful engine can handle 65 million cycles and more than 70 million flight hours. It is a superior commercial engine that is not only reliable but also durable. The electronic flight instrument system is developed by Honeywell and features large primary flight displays and an integrated avionics computer.
