GE Aviation Key Developments
GE Aviation Launches New Turboprop Engine
Nov 17 15
GE Aviation unveiled its all-new turboprop engine, which has been selected by Textron Aviation Inc. to power its single engine turboprop (SETP). Textron Aviation and GE announced the aircraft-engine pairing at the National Business Aviation Association's annual tradeshow. The 1,300 shaft horse power (SHP)-rated turboprop engine is the first entry in GE's new family of turboprop engines aimed at Business and General Aviation aircraft in the 850-1,600 SHP range. This new engine features an industry-best 16:1 overall pressure ratio (OPR), enabling the engine to achieve up to 20% lower fuel burn and 10% higher cruise power compared to competitor offerings in the same size class with 4000-6000 hour MTBO and class-leading performance retention. New design and manufacturing technologies leveraged from GE's latest military and commercial engines - such as 3D aero compressor designs derived from its newest commercial engines and additive manufacturing capabilities pioneered by the best-selling CFM LEAP turbofan - help GE's advanced turboprop to extend time between maintenance overhauls up to 30% more than existing engines. Textron Aviation's GE-powered SETP is expected to have a range of more than 1,500 nautical miles and speeds higher than 280 knots. Key features of GE's new turboprop engine include: Ruggedized, modular architecture based on the T700/CT7 turbo shaft for better performance at lower operating costs; All-titanium, 3D aero compressor design for light-weight and efficient power generation; Cooled turbine blades enabling higher thrust and fuel efficiency. leveraging the T700/CT7's 100 million flight hours and more than 5 million flight hours in hot/harsh environments; Additive manufactured structural components for reduced weight, improved performance and durability; Integrated electronic propulsion control for optimized single-lever engine and propeller control. GE expects to conduct the detailed design review (DDR) for the new turboprop in 2017 followed by the first full engine test in 2018. Development, testing and production of new turboprop engine will occur at GE Aviation's new turboprop Center of Excellence in Europe, announced this past September. The new facility will represent an investment exceeding $400 million and ultimately support 500 - 1,000 new jobs.
