The AE 3007 turbofan core is derived from the AE 1107 engine and is in the 8,000lb thrust class. It was developed to provide a turbofan member of the AE common core family for the growing regional jet and medium/large business jet markets.
The AE 3007 powers the Cessna Citation X business jet, for which the engine was certificated in early 1996; and the 50-seat Embraer ERJ 145 and 37-seat ERJ 135 twin-turbofan regional transports, which are now in service. In September 1999, Embraer selected the AE 3007A to power the 44-seat ERJ 140.
A growth version, the AE 3007H developed for the Northrop Grumman Ryan Aeronautical Centre Global Hawk unmanned surveillance aircraft, is in flight test with the US Air Force.
The AE3007 turbofan engine is a high bypass (5:1), two spool, axial-flow engine, flat rated at 7,580 pounds of thrust, uninstalled, sea level static to 113°F ambient temperature.
