The GE9X engine, featuring the largest fan ever produced for a commercial aircraft, 10 percent better fuel burn than the GE90, 16 front carbon fiber composite fan blades, and seven 3D printed additive parts, made its debut at the Paris Air Show.
The GE9X is the world’s largest and most powerful commercial aircraft engine. It incorporates GE’s most advanced technologies that have been developed over the last decade to make it the most fuel-efficient engine in its class while also delivering unmatched performance. The GE9X is the sole-sourced engine for the Boeing 777X family.
With the most extensive technology maturation program in the history of GE Aviation, the GE9X engine will deliver world-class reliability and performance at service entry. But first, components undergo rigorous testing at specialized facilities around the globe.
