Honeywell Products on the Legacy 500

  oThe HTF7500E turbofan engine delivers an optimal balance of performance
    and value with low maintenance costs and high reliability for today's
    business jet operators. The HTF7500E uses Honeywell's Single Annular
    Combustor for Emissions Reduction (SABER) technology to reduce the Legacy
    500's NOx emissions to 29 percent less than Committee on Aviation
    Environmental Protection standards, with ample margin for CO, unburned
    hydrocarbons and smoke emissions. The HTF7500E's efficient engine design
    further reduces CO2 emissions while lowering aircraft operating costs
    through reduced fuel consumption.
  oThe 36-150EMB APU and starter-generator are integrated systems that supply
    pneumatic and electric power for the aircraft while on the ground and in
    flight. Featuring a ported shroud design, the 36-150EMB APU has 10 percent
    more flow and pressure than previous models for faster, cooler starting of
    the main engine and runs at a lower load point to reduce fuel burn and
    improve reliability.
  oThe Ovation Select Cabin Management System provides passengers with
    state-of-the-art connectivity for work and leisure via their smartphone,
    tablet or installed remote controls. Through an intuitive interface that
    integrates high-definition screens, remote controls and other electronics
    developed for the ultimate passenger experience, Honeywell's Ovation
    Select enables passengers to stay informed and connected with their
    business operations while traveling. In addition to controlling the
    system's entertainment and productivity components, Ovation Select also
    puts lighting, seats, temperature and galley controls at the passengers'
  oThe air conditioning system, cabin pressure control system, supplemental
    cooling system and ventilation system are all part of the integrated
    environmental control system (ECS). Through a holistic approach, Honeywell
    is able to provide a more comfortable experience for passengers by
    minimizing changes in the cabin environment and reducing the workload for
    the crew. The Honeywell ECS is the highest efficiency, lowest weight
    solution in the industry, providing the Legacy 500 with reduced fuel
