Cessna Hemisphere on hold waiting to see how the Silvercrest plays out

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)?

Do what Dassault did, redesign it around the PW 800. Might be a lot of engine, but the Hemisphere could be stretched, like the Falcon 6X.

Despite Dassault's decision to walk away from Silvercrest, Textron Aviation has confirmed it "remains committed" to the engine for its in-development Cessna Citation Hemisphere. “As we currently understand it, the latest Silvercrest status does not significantly impact engine deliveries for the Hemisphere program,”
