Description: The GE90 engine was developed by General Electric to power a new generation of wide-body aircraft such as Boeing 777 and was ultimately adopted by commercial aircraft with a capacity of 100 seats/passengers or more. The first GE90 engine, GE90-85B, was certified at 84,700-lb of thrust and entered service in November 1995 powering a 777 from British Airways. Potential growth has make possible to achieve 127,900-lb of thrust by the GE90-115B model becoming the world's most powerful commercial aviation engine.
The development program for the GE90 engine is being backed by Snecma (France), FiatAvio (Italy) and IHI (Japan) as well as General Electric Aircraft Engines (USA).
As of May 2005, the GE90-115B engine has been selected to power the Boeing 777-300ER (2004), the Boeing 777-200LR Worldliner (2006) and the Boeing 777 Freighter airplane scheduled to enter service in 2008.
The GE90-115B 115,000-lb class engine was developed to meet the requirements of longer range Boeing 777-200LR and Boeing 777-300ER aircraft. It is considered as the world's most powerful jet engine and has set many world aviation records. It entered service in April 2004 powering Air France's Boeing 777-300ER.
In April 2005, Air Canada selected the GE90 engine to power its 18 firm order Boeing 777s plus another 18 airplanes as options. The firm order engines were valued at more than $600 million. Finally, Air Canada selected General Electric GEnx and GE90 engines to power a new order for 787 and 777 aircraft on November 9, 2005. GE90-115B engines were ordered to power a mixture of Boeing 777-200LR Worldliner, 777 Freighters and the 777-300ERs totaling 18 aircraft. GE90 contract was valued more than $900 million with engine deliveries beginning in 2007.
