NASA recently revealed the X-59 supersonic jet, a one-of-a-kind experimental aircraft that will fly faster than Mach 1 and higher than most high-performance airplanes. The X-59 is part of NASA’s Quesst mission to transform a sonic boom into a sonic “thump” for supersonic flight. It‘s powered by the F414-GE-100, a special engine variant designed by GE Aerospace at its plant in Lynn, Massachusetts.

The U.S. Army’s Future Long-Range Assault Aircraft (FLRAA) is a tiltrotor aircraft that takes off and lands vertically like a helicopter and flies like an airplane. Several key components of FLRAA will be supplied by GE Aerospace, including the powerful network, called the Digital Backbone, that acts as the nerve center for all the data traffic on board.
Nearly 20 years ago, GE Aerospace lost out in a competition to power part of LATAM Airlines’ passenger air fleet. But what goes around sometimes eventually does come around. Case in point: This month, LATAM announced it is ordering five additional Boeing 787-9 Dreamliner aircraft, all of which it plans to switch from competitor engines to GEnx-1B engines, making Chile-based LATAM the first airline in Latin America to utilize the GEnx.
In this Quick Six, we sat down with Amanda Dolsen, who is in the Military Officer Leadership Program (MOLP).

Another year, another record-breaking global fire season. This summer, international teams joined forces to attack major wildfires by air and land in Greece, Canada, and Hawaii, among other far-flung locales. In California, where more than 25% of the population lives in areas at very high or extremely high risk of wildfire, a slower season was a welcome reprieve at a time when the state sees an average of more than 1.57 million acres destroyed by fire each year.
But firefighting teams in Los Angeles, San Diego, and Ventura County, along with state wildfire crews at Cal Fire, are feeling better prepared to tackle future conflagrations, medical evacuations, and search-and-rescue operations these days because of one particular advantage: the Firehawk, a modified Sikorsky Black Hawk helicopter powered by GE Aerospace’s T700 engines
