Larzac: setting the standard in jet trainer engines
The Larzac® engine has passed the mark of 4 million flight-hours. In service for more than 45 years, it powers the Alpha Jet trainer, deployed by ten air forces worldwide.
The Larzac® develops about 3,200 lb of thrust and features a fully redundant FADEC control unit. It is the benchmark in its thrust class, ideally suited to either training or tactical support missions, powering single- or twin-engine aircraft. Furthermore, the Larzac® features a modular design, for easier maintenance and extended service life.
