Paris, France, June 17, 2015 - The GP7200 engine is exceeding performance expectations with the incorporation of the high pressure turbine (HPT) upgrade announced at the 2014 Farnborough International Airshow. The EA has delivered more than 50 of the upgraded engines and has released a retrofit kit for operators who wish to take advantage of the latest benefits.
“This package delivers significant improvements in durability and performance retention,” said EA President Dean Athans. “But we’re not stopping here. Later this year we’ll release new engine control software that will offer even better fuel burn.”
