Citing ongoing problems with Safran's Silvercrest engine, Textron Aviation has suspended work on its large-cabin Cessna Citation Hemisphere business jet. Textron chairman and CEO Scott Donnelly, who made the announcement during an investor conference call this morning, said the company is "waiting to see how the engine plays out. And then, based on that, we'll make our decisions and move forward knowing what the performance of the engine is."
So what's next if the Silvercrest can't do the job?
Program cancellation? Engine supplier change (I think the PW800 and Passport are too much engine)?
