The Lycoming T55, (Company designation Lycoming LTC-4), is a turboshaft engine used on American helicopters and fixed-wing aircraft (in turboprop form), since the 1950s. It was designed at the Lycoming Turbine Engine Division in Stratford, Connecticut as a scaled-up version of the smaller Lycoming T53. Both engines are now produced by Honeywell Aerospace. The T55 also serves as the core of the Lycoming ALF 502 turbofan.
