Eagle 407HP ideal for law enforcement

The Eagle 407HP, with it's improved performance, increased payload, greater efficiency and enhanced safety, is the ideal aircraft for law enforcement agencies.

Law enforcement helicopters do much more than simply patrol the highway these days. They operate in diverse terrains and challenging environmental conditions, performing airborne law enforcement and search and rescue missions which are critical to public safety and homeland security.

With power provided by the reliable and cost- effective Honeywell HTS900 engine, the Eagle 407HP is the ideal helicopter for law enforcement agencies at a federal, state and local level.

The 407HP has what it takes to support units on the ground during aerial surveillance, emergency and search and rescue missions. The overall and proven performance of the 407HP is unmatched and enables operators to fly faster and further with lower fuel and operating costs. Plus, the additional payload capacity enables agencies to carry an assortment of rescue gear.

The Eagle 407HP program was launched using designed and engineering licensed from Bell Helicopter and Honeywell to improve the performance of the existing Bell 407 helicopter, by replacing the standard engine with the Honeywell HTS900 engine.

Under this partnership, Honeywell provide the HTS900 engine and configuration whilst Eagle provide the aircraft, performs the engine installation and handles flight testing and certification.

Key engine design features include a highly efficient twin centrifugal compressor; cooled, single-crystal gas producer turbine blades which enable a 17 percent reduction in fuel burn and directly lowers operating budget. The upgrade provides a 12 percent reduction in direct maintenance as a result of its on-condition maintenance approach and rotating component service life of 15,000 hours/cycles.
