GE - Aviation is the world's leading producer of large and small jet engines for commercial and military aircraft. They also supply aircraft-derived engines for marine applications and provide aviation services. GE - Aviation's technological excellence, supported by continuing substantial investments in research and development, has been the foundation of growth, and helps to ensure quality products for customers. GE is positioned to be a world leader in military propulsion well into the 21st century. The F414, the turbofan engine for the U.S. Navy's F/A-18E/F Super Hornet front-line strike fighter, produces 22,000 pounds of thrust, and a growth development roadmap could increase its thrust by as much as 25 percent over the next several years. A growth version of the highly successful T700/CT7 engine, the T700/T6E, is available for civil and military helicopters worldwide. The best-selling F110 has been enhanced through a more durable, higher-thrust version powering F-16s. The status of T700/CT7 engines as the most popular engines in their class, with more than 12,000 produced for 133 customers in 57 countries throughout the world, continues to be reaffirmed.
