Shake It Off: GE’s Record-Breaking Jet Engine Is A Dust-Busting Powerhouse

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.

Making History: The People Who Brought GE’s Catalyst into the Sky

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.

GE Initiates Testing on Second XA100 Adaptive Cycle Engine

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.

Catalyze This: How 400 Engineers Put Their Heads Together And Reinvented The Turboprop

In some ways, Corkery is now walking down the path Moss blazed. Corkery spent the first half of his three decades at GE refining gas turbines. Today he’s leading a team of 400 aviation engineers who have developed a new turboprop engine. They believe the engine — the first such new engine design for the general aviation turboprop market in 50 years — will elevate the aviation market to new heights.
