I recently read about production of the new Falcon 7X corporate jet which will be powered by three 6,100-pound thrust Pratt & Whitney PW 307A engines, which are a derivative of the successful PW 300 series already in service on other bizjets and airliners (unfortunately, these aircraft are not mentioned).
My question is about the PW 300 engine. I find it very interesting to learn that a jet engine is being used on both bizjets & airliners. Mainly because of the difference in weight between the two types of aircraft.
Does someone out there know what bizjets & airliners are using the PW 300 engines? Also, how much thrust do these engines create?
Logic tells me that the size of these bizjets & airliners must be similar if they use the same engine. Perhaps we're talking about the larger Gulfstreams, Global Express's, and Challenger bizjets and the smaller Canadair Regional Jets & Embraer ERJ 145 short range regional airliners. Just a guess.

The Rolls-Royce (Allison) AE3007 is used on the Cessna Citation X as well as the Embraer 135/140/145. The Citation is quite a bit smaller, but faster than the ERJ's. The ERJ is around .78M vs the .98 for the Cessna.

Looking off of Cessna's website for the X, they say that at .91M and a little less than 1000lbs of payload that is has a range of 3500nm with 45min reserve.
The reason I looked that up, because I heard of them doing a round the world cruise to test the X with it's speeds. I thought I read that most of the trip was done at .92M

The Avro RJXs, both now idle at Woodford awaiting their fate (converting to RJ standard would be too expensive so dismantling is likely!), have the same powerplant as a bizjet, but I can't remember which one.
