GE Aviation’s GE90 engine has today (17 November) completed 25 years of service.
The GE90 entered service on 17 November 1995, on a 777 powering a British Airways flight between London and Dubai.
The engine family surpassed 100 million flight hours in July (see video below), and the GE90 has a dispatch reliability rate of 99.97 per cent, GE said.
“We are excited to celebrate another GE90 milestone and would like to congratulate everyone involved in the engine’s success,” said GE Aviation’s GE90 programme general manager Mike Kauffman.
“We continue to deliver these extremely reliable engines and our dedicated product support team will maintain the GE90 for many years to come, providing maximum value throughout its lifecycle.”
GE has delivered more than 2,800 GE90-94B and upgraded -115B engines to 70 operators around the world. The engine family powers all 777 models and is the exclusive powerplant on the 777-300ER, -200LR, and 777F.
