A 1,300-strong shipment of GE Healthcare patient monitors started arriving at hundreds of public hospitals throughout the country shortly before Christmas, made possible with help from engineers at GE Aviation.
The U.S. Army Combat Capabilities Development Command’s Aviation & Missile Center (CCDC AvMC), Boeing, and GE Aviation expanded the flight envelope in their demonstration of a Chinook helicopter with GE Aviation’s T408 engine at Ft. Eustis, Va. The cooperative test team achieved first flight in September 2020, and continues to show how integration of more powerful engines on the CH-47 Chinook can support future aircraft capability and Army Aviation modernization efforts.
The new aerobatic H-Series engine powered its first flight test on the Diamond Aircraft DART-550.
The final training step is the Composite Maintenance Trainer (CMT), a full-scale mock-up of the CH-53K aircraft, including replicas of its three T408 engines. Training will begin at Marine Air Corps Air Station (MCAS) New River in Jacksonville, North Carolina. David Karcher, a Lockheed Martin senior specialist mechanic explained, “The benefit to a trainer like this is to create an environment that is somewhat realistic to a real aircraft but has safety in mind.”
Forest fires ravaged the western United States this year. 10 Tanker, an air carrier company based in New Mexico that specializes in aerial firefighting, used four DC-10 airliners, powered by GE’s CF6 engines, to combat the destruction. Read our interview with 10 Tanker.

Some of the fascinating, technical challenges presented to engineers in the GE9X program over the last few years.
To celebrate the GE9X engine certification, Steve Ross can add another accomplishment to his unique 37-year GE Aviation career—working back-to-back from start to finish on the two newest widebody engine development programs.
The GE9X engine has been certified by U.S. aviation authorities, a key milestone in its journey to power the new twin-engine Boeing 777X family. Ten GE9X engines have been delivered for Boeing’s four 777X flight test airplanes.
This first flight is the culmination of a five-year effort under between the Army, Boeing and GE Aviation to evaluate the feasibility and benefits of higher-power engines.
GE Aviation’s history working with the Air Force dates back to the dawn of the jet age, when the U.S. military branch was established on Sept. 18, 1947.
After the COVID-19 pandemic started shutting down countries around the world in March, David Havera partnered with TE-FOOD to develop a travel app that monitors whether planes, crews and passengers have cleared specific health and cleanliness checks and enables passengers to scan the tray and seat to confirm both have been sanitized between flights.
