Flip the Script: GEnx Program Caps Off Big Year With LATAM Airlines Deal

Jay Stowe

Nearly 20 years ago, GE Aerospace lost out in a competition to power part of LATAM Airlines’ passenger air fleet. But what goes around sometimes eventually does come around. Case in point: This month, LATAM announced it is ordering five additional Boeing 787-9 Dreamliner aircraft, all of which it plans to switch from competitor engines to GEnx-1B engines, making Chile-based LATAM the first airline in Latin America to utilize the GEnx.

It’s the kind of news you like to hear anytime, but for GEnx it amounts to icing on the cake.

Flight Path: A Look Back at GE Aerospace’s Progress to Reduce Emissions in 2023

GE Reports Staff
December 08, 2023

Two years ago, the Air Transport Action Group (ATAG), of which GE Aerospace is a member, set an ambitious goal of achieving net zero carbon emissions by 2050. To gauge the progress the industry has made toward that target, GE Aerospace this summer commissioned a survey of 325 aviation decision makers in the U.S., the U.K., China, India, the UAE, and France.

Test Early, Test Often: How the GE9X Engine Became GE Aerospace’s Most Advanced Certified Power Plant Yet

Christine Gibson
November 14, 2023

Ohio doesn’t get many sandstorms. But an hour east of Cincinnati, on an otherwise sunny day, a dust devil is brewing. Atop a towering scaffold, a row of hoses pumps out dense clouds of powder and grit. They are instantly sucked, like a horizontal tornado, into the spinning fan blades of a jet engine a few feet away.

Getting Granular: How GE Aerospace Engineers Used Science to Solve an Engine Durability Problem

Chris Noon

The LEAP engine, the high-bypass turbofan produced by CFM International, the 50-50 joint company between GE Aerospace and Safran Aircraft Engines, has built a reputation as a leader in efficiency and asset utilization. In airline service, it is demonstrating better durability in neutral environments than the previous-generation CFM56 product line at the same point in that engine’s life.

Chasing the Contrails: GE Aerospace Teams Up with NASA and Boeing to Take a Closer Look at Emissions

Chris Norris
November 06, 2023

The scene about 36,000 feet in the air somewhere north of Seattle has shades of a techno-thriller: Two jets are loaded with an international team of experts from GE Aerospace, NASA, Boeing, German Aerospace Center (DLR), and elsewhere. A NASA DC-8, bristling with probes and sensors, pursues Boeing’s ecoDemonstrator Explorer, a 737-10 destined for United Airlines whose CFM LEAP-1B engines are operating with HEFA sustainable aviation fuel (SAF).

Inside Job: How Sensiworm’s Intricate Access Capabilities Could Help Keep More Engines On-Wing

Chris Norris

Moving deep inside the bowels of a jet engine — negotiating baroque curves and tricky surfaces — GE Aerospace Research’s new Sensiworm looks less like a complex triumph of engineering than something eerily close to a living organism. This is not a coincidence.
