From a show-stopping GE9X-powered 777X flying display to headline grabbing sustainability news, see all the GE Aviation headlines from the 2021 Dubai Airshow.
Engineer and avid runner David Riddle powered himself to an impressive 2:28 finishing time at the Boston Marathon this year. But he couldn’t have done it without the support of his family and GE colleagues.
As a young girl, Roxana Leonte remembers feeling awestruck by the white lines of the contrails that airplanes left in the sky as they soared high above her home in Romania. She marveled at everything from the physics that allowed airplanes to take flight to what it would feel like to be a passenger or even the pilot on a jumbo jet.
At the Dubai Airshow this week, one of the most anticipated sights will be the Boeing 777X, Boeing’s new plane powered by the GE9X, the most powerful jet engine in the world. But thrust is just one of the engine’s many attributes. It’s also tough and the United Arab Emirates, a hot, desert country that also happens to be the base for two of the world’s largest airlines — Emirates and Etihad Airways — is an ideal place to talk about the engine’s brawn.
Data may not be what makes the world go round, but it can help airlines increase fuel efficiency and, by extension, help reduce carbon dioxide emissions when their passengers are on globe-trotting adventures.
Wash And Go: GE’s New Way Of Cleaning Jet Engines Can Help Airlines Cut Emissions And Improve Operations
We have reinvented how to clean a jet engine. Meet GE’s 360 Foam Wash, the powerful approach thoroughly cleans a commercial jet engine, helping to improve its performance and potentially eliminate tons of climate-damaging CO2.
The Boeing 777X aircraft made its public debut at the Dubai Airshow on Sunday. Propelled by a pair of GE9X engines from GE Aviation, the engine can supply 134,000 pounds of thrust, more than the rocket used in America’s first manned space flight.
As the GE Aviation rises to the aviation industry’s challenge to achieve net zero CO2 emissions by 2050, GE Aviation’s Chief Engineer Chris Lorence outlines why open fan engine architecture is the radical change aviation needs to achieve its goals.
As world leaders gather in Glasgow, Scotland, for the United Nation’s 26th conference on climate change — also known as COP26 — we outline five ways GE Aviation is rising to the challenge with technology innovation and collaboration.
A routine commercial long-haul flight scored an important aviation industry milestone last week when a Boeing 787 operated by Etihad Airways flew from London to Abu Dhabi on a fuel blend containing sustainable jet fuel. The plane’s carbon emissions were 72% below those of an equivalent flight in 2019.
The comforts of home at 41,000 feet is closer than ever, thanks to Dassault’s new Falcon 10X business jet and GE Aviation’s next-generation primary and solid state secondary electrical power distribution and control system.
GE’s XA100 adaptive cycle engine is ushering in a new era of combat propulsion. Backed by more than a decade of development with the U.S. Air Force, this engine could open up the world of “and” for fighter jets like the F-35.
Meet Gurhan Andac, GE Aviation’s engineering leader for aviation fuels and additives. Andac researches biofuels and synthetic fuels for engines, or sustainable aviation fuel (SAF). His team studies how well the fuels perform in engines, quantifies their benefits and promotes SAF use with the airlines.
Internships play a critical role in an aspiring professional’s transition from school to the working world. GE Aviation is currently hiring for over 500 intern roles in addition to over 250 spots on the coveted rotational development programs for those graduating in 2022.
Here Come The Change-Makers: GE To Invest $5 Million In Next Engineers Diversity Program In Cincinnati
The first time Alisha Davis-Kent heard about Next Engineers, GE’s new global college readiness program focused on increasing the diversity of young people in the engineering field, she felt like someone had “heard my story, understood my story and was creating a solution to help others overcome some of the struggles and problems that I had as a child.”
As it reaches its 10-year revenue service anniversary, the GEnx engine recently achieved outstanding endurance test results, completing over 3,000 cycles of dust ingestion testing.
The GEnx has done it again. On October 7, a Qantas 787-9 Dreamliner named Great Barrier Reef, powered by GEnx engines, set a new long-distance record, flying 9,333 miles, reaching Darwin, Australia, from Buenos Aires in 17 hours and 25 minutes.
Europeans are familiar with the feeling of a penalty shootout on the football pitch, and this morning has a similar mix of tension, excitement, and anxiety. Inside the Beechcraft Berlin Aviation (BBA) hangar is an experimental Beechcraft King Air 350, and on its left wing was the new Catalyst engine, which was installed last December.
In partnership with NASA, GEwill mature a megawatt (MW) class integrated hybrid electric powertrain, with ground and flight tests planned for mid-2020s.
Join us at 8 p.m. on Wednesday, October 6 for the Smithsonian’s National Air and Space Museum panel “Working Toward Greener Skies” highlighting aviation industry efforts towards sustainable air travel. The free, virtual discussion will feature GE Aviation’s Mohamed Ali, Vice President of Engineering, to review the latest sustainability initiatives and the future of air travel.
