Description: The Snecma Silvercrest is a turbofan engine family developing from 9,500 to 12,000 pounds of thrust. The Silvercrest is intended to power super mid-size, large and long-range business jets weighing from 45,000 to 60,000 pounds at takeoff. The engine's core has been designed to provide more than 15 percent decrease in fuel consumption and CO2 emissions compared to existing engines in the same thrust class. Besides, NOx emissions will be 50 percent versus the ICAO's CAEP/6 standard and will reduce noise up to 20 EPNdB versus Stage 4. In the future, the Silvercrest engine family could evolve to power small regional jets seating up to 60 passengers. Snecma started the development of the Silvercrest engine in 2006 with the first test flight planned for 2013. The engine is expected to become available for commercial operators at the end of 2014. In May 2012, Cessna announced the selection of the Silvercrest engine to power the Citation Longitude long-range business jet slated to enter service in 2017.
