Description: The General Electric T901-GE-900, formerly known as the GE3000, is a new generation turboshaft engine developed under the US Army's Advanced Affordable Turbine Engine program (AATE) as the replacement for T700 engines powering the Black Hawk and Apache helicopters. The GE3000 will offer a 3,000-shp maximum power at takeoff as well as 25 percent more range than previous engines. The GE3000 additional power will allow the US Army Apache and Black Hawk helicopters to increase their payloads and/or increase their hovering ceiling which is specially well suited for operations in mountainous terrain as well as on hot and high environments. General Electric expects the new engine to serve over 40 years well beyond 2050 onboard US Army's Apache and Black Hawk helicopters as well as on other aircraft.
The US Army selected the T901 engine for the Improved Turbine Engine Program in February 2019.
