In the 1970s, GE Aerospace partnered with NASA to test the Quiet, Clean, Short-Haul Experimental Engine (QCSEE). This demonstrator engine helped launch technologies found in our engines today including composite materials, as well as other innovations being furthered developed with the current CFM RISE program.
Known for its daring rescues and VIP transport, the Sikorsky S-92 is getting an upgrade. GE Aerospace’s CT7 engines that power the S-92 will now use a blend of sustainable aviation fuel (SAF) and conventional jet fuel during maintenance, repair, and overhaul at ITP Aero. This move reflects the aviation industry’s commitment to sustainable flight.
The F-35 Lightning II, manufactured by Lockheed Martin, can reach supersonic speeds and may be the world’s stealthiest fighter plane. For pilots, its advanced electronic systems are what really set it apart. Designed to replace most of the United States’ aging fighter fleet, the F-35 comes equipped with a constellation of sensors and avionics that assemble a remarkably detailed picture of conditions in and around the aircraft. GE Aerospace supplies eight of those systems, including electrical power management, aircraft memory, remote interface units for the fuselage and missiles, and engine-monitoring technology. This spring, GE Aerospace signed a four-year performance-based logistics (PBL) contract with Lockheed Martin to maintain and repair this equipment on F-35 aircraft around the world.
GE Aerospace today marks the 30th year since its F414 engine successfully completed its first run. With decades of experience under its belt and reputation of offering an outstanding performance, reliability, and versatility, the F414 is still firing on all cylinders.
The GEnx engine family has surpassed the 50 million flight hour mark in less than 12 years, the fastest rate ever for a commercial widebody engine.
Over the past 20 years, Nolita Lewis has logged hundreds of hours in Cincinnati-area schools, serving as a student math tutor and a STEM mentor for girls.
This week at the Oshkosh air show in Wisconsin, the world’s largest air show, GE Aerospace debuted its new livery design for the aircraft testbed for NASA’s Electrified Powertrain Flight Demonstration (EPFD) project, a landmark effort to help prove the feasibility of hybrid electric flight for commercial aviation.
It’s safe to say most people who have traveled by air have encountered GE Aerospace products during their journey. Engines made by GE Aerospace or its partner companies power three-quarters of the world’s flights. Just as notable is GE’s work with militaries around the world.
GE’s world-class engines and integrated systems benefit from the company’s investment in both military and commercial technologies, and their performance and reliability have earned them the trust of warfighters and nations across the globe.
In 1941, the United States government asked GE to develop the first American jet engine. Allied defense, industrial collaboration, technological advancement, and economic growth were at stake. GE delivered the very next year.
Now, more than 80 years later, GE Aerospace finds itself at the cusp of another era-defining moment. With climate change impacting communities and economies around the world, the aerospace industry is in the midst of what feels to some like a seismic shift.
The aviation industry made its long-awaited return to the Paris Air Show this week, the first since 2019. An impressive display of commercial, military, and business and general aviation aircraft lined the side of the Le Bourget Airport runway, many with GE Aerospace technology onboard.

The most important private and business aviation event in Europe, EBACE 2023, was staged in the city of Geneva last month, gathering the industry’s top players along with their latest developments and flagship products. Among the flagship products on display were full-scale mockups of GE’s Passport engine and the new Catalyst turboprop engine, a product of Avio Aero – a GE Aerospace company.
If you blinked during this year of change you might have missed some of GE’s biggest stories. Here we count down the 10 most read articles by GE Reports in 2022.
As 2022 quickly comes to a close, it marks another major year in technology for GE Aerospace. The company looks to mature new, breakthrough technologies that could eventually lead to aircraft engine products with reduced CO2 emissions compared to engines today.
This week, GE Aerospace’s Avio Aero business announced it will lead a demonstration project, partly funded by the Clean Aviation Joint Undertaking of the European Commission, to advance hybrid electric propulsion with hydrogen fuel cells.
Silk Way West Airlines has ordered a combined total of 16 GE9X and GE90 engines to power its fleet of long-haul Boeing 777 aircraft as part of its fleet upgrade efforts. The engine order includes five GE9X engines and 11 GE90 engines.
The Future of Flight — Navy Veteran Corey Sheeron Sees it Every Day on the XA100 Adaptive Cycle Engine Program
After almost 12 years in the U.S. Navy, Corey Sheeron has found a new career on the XA100 team at GE Aerospace.
The U.S. Air Force and GE have successfully concluded testing on GE’s second XA100 adaptive cycle engine at the Air Force’s Arnold Engineering Development Complex (AEDC). With testing at AEDC completed, GE has accomplished the final major contract milestone of the Air Force’s Adaptive Engine Transition Program (AETP).
Dubbed the Woodstock of aviation, and officially known as EAA AirVenture Oshkosh, it’s the largest and perhaps greatest of all airshows, gathering pilots, engineers, industry executives, and superfans of all ages to celebrate the best in the business and the stars of tomorrow. Here is a summary of Avio Aero and GE Aviation’s successful week in Wisconsin.
