Testing on second XA100 adaptive cycle engine prototype begins F110-powered F-15EX flight test campaign progresses GE remains...
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.
Together We RISE: Luca Bedon, Head of Advanced Technologies at Avio Aero, Talks The Future of Aviation
The new technology demonstrator program by CFM International, with its ambitious emissions reduction goals for propulsion, finds its roots in European research. Luca Bedon, Head of Advanced Technologies at Avio Aero, talks a more sustainable aviation.
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.
“Is this heaven?” “No… It’s Oshkosh.” That nod to the 1989 film Field of Dreams was uttered more than once at this year’s EAA AirVenture Oshkosh. And for good reason.
As the leading provider of civil and military propulsion, GE Aviation has an inherent responsibility to help the aviation industry decarbonize. Rising to this challenge inspires our employees, serves our customers, and indeed, is good for our business.
Lacks afterburner. Unstable on all three flight axes without the help of an onboard computer. No curved surfaces. Limited payload. The story behind the GE-powered F-117A Nighthawk.
GE Aviation and Safran Launch Advanced Technology Demonstration Program for Sustainable Engines; Extend CFM Partnership to 2050
GE Aviation and Safran today launched a bold technology development program targeting more than 20 percent lower fuel consumption and CO2 emissions compared to today’s engines. The CFM RISE (Revolutionary Innovation for Sustainable Engines) program will demonstrate and mature a range of new, disruptive technologies for future engines that could enter service by the mid-2030s.
