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.

The transition to cleaner sources of energy is one place where GE is helping decarbonize the world and address climate change. Another area involves aviation.
Aviation watchers are likely seeing more and more discussion about Sustainable Aviation Fuel (SAF), as increased supply and use of alternative fuels is critical to helping the aviation industry reach its goals to reduce, and even eliminate, net carbon emissions from commercial flights around the world. But is SAF and why is it so important.
GE Aviation’s engineering leader for aviation fuels and additives, Gurhan Andac, answers the top questions about SAF.
GE Aviation received nearly $55 million from U.S. FAA CLEEN III funding to accelerate development of a series of technologies for more sustainable aviation, including open fan engine architecture, electrification, noise-lowering technologies, and more.
After nearly seven years in the U.S. Army, Brennen McGuire wondered, what’s next? Then he learned about GE Aviation’s Junior Officer Leadership Program.
Full-scale prototype engine testing in the AETP program is the capstone of a multi-year technology maturation and risk reduction effort to bring an adaptive cycle engine to full maturity in close partnership with the U.S. Air Force. GE’s first XA100 engine tests began in December 2020, marking the world’s first ever run of a flight-weight three-stream adaptive cycle engine. Tests successfully validated the engine’s ability to deliver transformational propulsion capability to current and future fighter aircraft. Engine prototypes assembled as part of AETP are designed to fit and integrate directly into the F-35.
Engineer Marie-Christine Caron, Senior Operations Manager at the GE Bromont site, was recently named to SME’s list of 20 women making their mark in robotics and automation in 2020. In this Quick Six, she talks about her engineering, robotics and site leadership experience.
This year it, GE’s Celma engine overhaul facility in Brazil celebrates two very special anniversaries. GE Aviation, Services Celma is the largest aircraft engines overhaul shop in Latin America, and with more than 90 percent of its work volume coming in from all over the world, the business is among the main service exporters in Brazil.
What’s it like to carry the Olympic torch? Three GE Aviation employees provide insights from the torch relay.
Dr. Sanford Moss almost singlehandedly gave GE its critical toehold into the new, fast-evolving aviation industry when he led the design of the first practical “turbosupercharger,” which allowed piston-powered airplanes to soar at record heights.
