Flying Into The Future: Christine Andrews Is Helping NASA And GE Aviation Build A Hybrid Electric Engine
One summer as a teenager, Christine Andrews visited NASA Mission Control Center in Houston with her family. Marveling at the...
GE Digital’s Fuel Insight software can help airlines reduce costs and emissions by analyzing flight data, examining trends and identifying fuel savings in just minutes. Japan’s All Nippon Airways (ANA) will use Fuel Insight software to help the carrier work toward reducing its carbon footprint and meeting its goal of net-zero emissions by 2050.
The race to decarbonize flight just picked up speed. Airbus and CFM International will collaborate on tests of an aircraft engine fueled by hydrogen that, if all goes according to plan, would carry passengers in the mid-2030s while producing no carbon emissions during flight.

United To Fly World’s First Passenger Flight On 100% Sustainable Aviation Fuel Supplying One Of Its Engines
Making history. Today United will fly the first commercial flight full of passengers to use 100% drop-in sustainable aviation fuel (SAF) for one of the aircraft’s two LEAP-1B engines.
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.
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.
