Successful first run for the AlliedSignal AS900

AlliedSignal’s new AS900 turbofan engine successfully completed its first run in early August. The AS977 version of the 7,000-lb thrust AS900 has been selected to power the proposed new Avro RJX regional airliner. Twelve test engines will be used in the test program, with certification planned for the first quarter of 2001.
