The Design and Development of the CJ610 Turbojet and the CF700 Turbofan Engines for Use in Business Jet Aircraft 650381
The design and development of the CJ610 and CF700 family of engines were started in 1959. These engines used as their basic gas generator the gas generator from the Military J85 engine. The design of the fan section of the CF700 engine is based on the design used in the large General Electric CJ805-23 engine. The development of both of these engines is described and the special tests that were required for FAA certification.
Some of the problems that were encountered during the installation of the engine into the Business Jet aircraft are discussed, and also there is a brief discussion of the continuing development program planned for the engines in order to give good customer service in the Business Jet field.
