GE’s T408 Turboshaft Engine
The T408 has a history with ILA Berlin—the 2018 show was the T408’s international public debut. Capable of producing more than 7,500 shaft horsepower, the T408 combines breakthrough technologies, innovative cooling schemes and modern-day durability to deliver numerous mission-critical advantages in the world’s harshest operating environments. It is rugged, simpler and more sand-tolerant than any engine in its class and offers dramatic gains in fuel efficiency and power. Most importantly, the engine was developed for the “maintainer,” and will offer significant maintenance savings.
GE’s F414 Turbofan Engine
When the U.S. Navy awarded GE Aviation a $754 million engineering and manufacturing development contract for the F414 engine in 1992, few could have predicted just how versatile the engine would become. Originally developed for the Boeing F/A-18E/F Super Hornet, the F414 now has six applications, racking up close to 5 million flight hours and more than 1,750 engine deliveries to customers globally. And nearly three decades after it was first introduced, GE’s F414 production line in Lynn, MA, is still delivering new, high-performing engines that are delivering for pilots around the world.
