1, 2: another GE-powered airplane just took off!And now again. While you're counting, we will try to introduce ourselves.
We are a proud member of the General Electric's global network, namely the GE Aviation division, which ranks as one of the largest aircraft engines manufacturer in the world. To put this into perspective, right now, there more than 2 200 airplanes carrying over 300 000 people in the air thanks to GE's engines.
The purpose of our work is to lift people up, carry them wherever they need to go and bring them home safely – all around the world. This complex, large-scale effort requires access to technology, organizational process and capital that only a Digital Industrial Company can provide.
From the heart of Europe...
The combination GE's innovation and Czech engineering tradition
In 2008, GE Aviation acquired certain assets of Walter, the well established Czech aviation company. We soon launched the GE H80, a new turboprop derivative engine – based on the former Walter M601 engine – designed for the transportation, utilities, agriculture and retrofit aircraft segments.
The GE H80 was the first in the H Series. It was followed by the H75 and H85. All of these engines come with more shaft horsepower and improved fuel efficiency. For pilots and customers, the H Series engines enable longer flights and significantly enhance hot-day take-off performance and high-altitude cruise speeds.
