In Albany, Georgia, we're pushing the performance of crop dusters with the latest turboprop engine technology.

GE has unveiled the H80 turboprop engine, delivering more power and better efficiency for aerial application and utility aircraft missions.

000

Acres of land that a plane using an H80 engine could have seeded since opening this page.

107

Degrees Fahrenheit in which the GE H80 engine can operate (up to 20 degrees higher than engine predecessor).

90%

Amount that soil erosion can be reduced on the average farm by using aerial application.

The H80 turboprop engine's redesigned compressor and turbine allow for a dramatically shorter takeoff distance, lower maintenance than other engines, and increased power in hot temperatures and higher altitudes.

H80 Turboprop Engine

GE is incorporating sophisticated technologies like a bladed disc rotor design, improved compressor and turbine aerodynamics, and high temperature capability materials into the H80. These improvements deliver more shaft horsepower, better engine fuel efficiency and increased temperature margin, significantly enhancing hot-day takeoff performance and high-altitude cruise speeds in business and general aviation.
