Description: The F124 is a 6,000-lb of thrust class turbofan engine produced by the International Turbine Engine Company (ITEC), a joint venture of Honeywell and AIDC. The F124 engine is intended to provide reliable and safe propulsion for fixed wing training, light combat and unmanned aircraft. Its features include an advanced dual FADEC control system, modular construction, integrated engine health monitoring system (EMS), and outstanding power-to-weight ratio. Basically, the F124 is a derivative of the F125 engine lacking the afterburner module.
The F124 engine's efficient and durable design and construction allows for surge free operation throughout the flight envelope. In the early 2000s, the engine was selected by Aero Vodochody of the Czech Republic to power its L-159 advanced training and light combat aircraft. Aermacchi selected the F124 engine to power its M-346 advanced supersonic training aircraft which is expected to enter service by 2010 with the Italian Air Force. The F124-GA-100 is slightly more powerful and heavier than -200 model.
