|HS125 CC3 Aircraft|
The HS125 CC3 aircraft is powered by two Garret TFE731-3-1H turbofans that are attached by pylons to the rear section of the aircraft. The lightweight TFE series of engines are quiet and economical and their modular design allows easy maintenance and reduces the engine’s unserviceability rate. In addition to providing power, the engines also drive an accessory gearbox, which, in turn, drives the aircraft’s fuel, oil and hydraulic pumps and a generator for electrical power. As each engine has a separate gearbox, all aircraft systems can operate normally on a single engine. The HS125 CC3 is fitted with an electronic defensive-aids suite that gives the aircraft almost 360º protection against Infrared missiles.
The HS125 fuselage contains three main sections. The forward section of the fuselage contains a weather radar, the cockpit and the galley area; the centre section contains the passenger compartment, which can accommodate up to six passengers and their luggage; the rear section contains a large equipment bay and two additional fuel tanks for extended-range operations.
