Garrett Tests Corporate Turbofan Engine
Los Angeles—Garrett Corp. has been testing since last May a new turbofan engine in the 4,000-5,000-lb. thrust class which could become a basic powerplant for a new round of long-range corporate jet aircraft in the early 1970s. The engine, designated ATF3 (AiResearch Turbofan No. 3) is being developed by Garrett’s AiResearch Div. and tested at the company’s Torrance, Calif., facility.
